Last june, I complained about iTunes not letting me download the photos in my own iPod. I had just no possibility at all to extract one of my own photos from my own iPod into my own computer without buying a third-party tool...

Today, by pure chance, I found a workaround:

  1. connect your ipod/iphone to your mac
  2. launch Preview (Aperçu in french)
  3. select menu item File > Import an Image
  4. be happy...

If Preview can do it so trivially, could Apple explain me why iTunes can't do it ????
