After several false starts and some research on the net, I can confirm that Apple has failed pretty miserably in providing us appropriate means by which to manage the iPhone photography. Nothing I found allowed me to download my photos to the iMac. However, once I brought up the Windows system under Parallels, I could see the iPhone memory just as if it were any other USB drive -- which is exactly what I would have expected the Apple system to do for me. Using standard Windows software, I was able to import all the photos on the phone, manipulate them using a photo editor, and eventually delete them from the phone, leaving the iPhone cleaned off and ready for the next batch of photos. Although I am one of the earliest adopters and biggest advocates of this product, the lack of attention to these basic elements of use after almost three months of activity are inexcusable. Mr. Jobs and his team owe us a big apology and some decent work to provide basic capabilities that SHOULD have been included with the original release. Between the lack of email management software and any means for managing photos, they've really let their customers down big time. HELP!
