    Plug in your iPhone to your Mac and iPhoto application will automatically run.
    If not, click on iPhoto application. Then IMPORT your photos. Done.

    Import All in iPhotos, then when prompted, "Delete All".

    Sync again via iTunes to get the photos imported back into your iPhone again.

    Use the application "Preview" and you'll be able to import a list of photos from your iPhone to the desired destination in your Mac.

    Thanks everyone. Your advice works!

    Question:

    1) When i sync again and i want to delete those pics from Iphone from Preview/iphoto, can i do so?

    2) I noticed that only photos were downloaded. Does it mean that i need to use imovie to download videos?

    3) Can i create different albums on my iphone (i.e Portfolio Pictures) using Preview/iphoto?

    Thanks!
