backing up pics from iphone to Mac

Perhaps there are tons of post out there about how to achieve this. This for my personal convenience about how to backup images. There are various ways:

  1. iTunes backup
  2. using iPhoto
  3. using Image Capture Program

I don’t prefer iTunes for this- somehow i don’t feel i am in control with that backup, don’t want to pay for iPhoto so using Image Capture Program is the only option for me.


  1. Cmd + Space Bar — Image Capture
  2. Select the iPhone in Image Capture application
  3. Select pictures and videos that you want to move
  4. you may want to delete the images from iPhone as part of moving to Mac

That’s it.
