You can use Image Capture to transfer images and video clips from many cameras, and devices such as your iPhone that contain a camera, to your computer. Once you transfer the items, you can delete them from the device.

  1. Connect your device to your computer, then turn the device on.

    You may be asked to unlock your device with a passcode or to trust the device.

  2. In Image Capture, select the device in the Devices or Shared list.

  3. Use the buttons at the bottom of the Image Capture window to view the thumbnails as a list (List view button) or to see larger thumbnails (Thumbnail view button), or to rotate (Rotate button) or delete (Delete button) images.

    Drag the slider in the lower-right corner of the window to change the thumbnail size.

  4. Click the Import To pop-up menu, then choose where to save the images or which app to use to open the image.

  5. To import only some of the images, select them, then click Import. To import all the images, click Import All.

    You can also set up Image Capture to do the following:

    • Automatically transfer items from your device to your computer whenever they’re connected: Click the Show Hide button  in the lower-left corner of the Image Capture window, click the “Connecting this [device] opens” pop-up menu, then choose AutoImporter.

    • Remove items from the device after transferring them to your computer: Select “Delete after import” in the lower-left corner of the window.
