CopyTrans Photo overview
Open CopyTrans Photo and connect your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. You’ll see all your device photos and videos displayed on the left. Your iPhone albums will appear on the left side of the screen. Your PC folders will be listed on the right-hand side. You can navigate through your PC directories smoothly.
Hide and show the album list and folder explorer
iPhone albums are displayed in the pane on the far left.
You can switch from album list view to album tab view by clicking the blue symbol on the top left.
The folder explorer on the right side of the program allows you to browse through your PC folders for photos. You can hide the explorer by clicking the blue icon on the top right above the listed folders.
Create albums on your iPod or iPhone
Before copying photos on and off your iPad, you need to learn how to create new photo albums. To create new albums on the iPad, click on the green photos symbol on the left-hand side.
Next, give the new photo albums and click OK.
Your albums will be created in the iPhone’s Photo Library, not in the Camera Roll. Remember that the Camera Roll only stores the pictures you have taken with the iPhone.
Create folder shortcuts in CopyTrans Photo
You can create folder shortcuts in CopyTrans Photo to access your PC folders quickly. The shortcut will be created based on the last open tab. Use the Explorer to open a new folder and then click on the “+” button on top of the PC pane.
To close the shortcut you have just created, right-click on it and select the “Close tab” option from the popup menu.
Transfer PC Photos to iPod, iPad and iPhone
Open any computer folder and select the pictures or videos you want to add to your iPhone. Then, drag and drop the selected items to the left-hand side of the window (see the screenshot below).
Note: PC photos can be transferred either to the iPhone’s Photo Library or to an album, but not to Camera Roll, as it contains photos taken on your iPhone camera only. You cannot delete photos from Camera Roll either.
Transfer iPod, iPad and iPhone Photos to PC
To transfer iPhone photos and videos back to your computer, select and drag and drop photos and videos to the left-hand pane.
Apply changes to iPhone, iPad or iPod
Finally, click on the “Apply changes” button to save all the modifications you’ve made. In case you don’t want the changes to take effect, just tap on the round arrow in the top-left corner to refresh the program.
Well, that’s it! We hope you’ll enjoy using CopyTrans Photo.
