plug the phone in.. close iTunes if it is open.. then use iphoto..... what is the issue with iphoto.. you don't like it?

iphoto is fine. i just don't have it (and don't need it for anything other than this) and have a HUGE problem with having to drop another $80 just to get photos off my phone...

i haven't tried this, but you should be able to use image capture as well. if you have it, it will be in your applications folder. it's a simple application strictly for pulling photos off of other devices. when you have your iPhone plugged in, open image capture and it should show the iPhone as a camera off of which you can download your pictures...
