Windows 7: How to get photos from iPhone to Windows 7?

How to get photos from iPhone to Windows 7?

Hello everyone,

I have iPhone 4, and am trying to transfer photos to my computer from it the 'correct way'. Although I could do it manually by copying them thru the Windows Explorer dialogue that opens up when the two are connected, there are other, better ways that I wish to use.

I tried Windows Live Photo Gallery, and it seemed to do an okay job. Although it *did* create a separate subdirectory for each dated group of photos. On the other hand, it was smart enough to present me with the photos for importing/transferring and ask if the ones with similar dates should have similar names. It also gave me the option of _not_ copying some photos. I just do not think it put the videos in my Video folder. Perhaps because they are .MOV files.

I also have Adobe Bridge and Lightroom. I thought that, on this current transfer of images, that Lightroom would handle the task and I could see how it managed the image transfer from iPhone to Windows 7. However, when I connected iPhone to USB port on computer, Bridge came up, so I decided to use *it*.

Also, I thought that EXIF was the photo's embedded identification information, but then Bridge today prompted me for the XMP and I looked it up and it is a variation of the IPTC, which is the naming format. It does not say how this relates to the EXIF data.

So, what is the best way to get the photos OUT of iPhone and into Windows 7, while preserving as much of the original metadata as possible, and organizing the individual files in their appropriately specified subdirectories, including separating out the video files into my Videos folder?

Thanks a lot!
