Assuming you're using Windows, go to My Computer and your iPhone should be listed there. Double click until you find the pictures located on your iPhone. Then, you can copy and paste them wherever you want them, then they can be deleted from your iPhone at your computer or on your iPhone. This has worked for me on my iPod Touch 4th generation, so it should work on iPhone.
If you're using a Mac, sorry, but I'm not experienced with Macs. You should be able to find the iPhone as if it were a USB thumb drive, but that's all I can give.
Download iPhone Explorer from Plug in the iPhone USB cable. Find the DCIM folder and copy all the pictures from it. This is fundamentally better than emailing the pics to yourself because when you email them, your iphone compresses then in some situations. This works on both Macs and PCs.
it was something enormously obvious! I researched online some more and found so many different answers but hidden in some random thread somewhere was a guy that said the following:
"The iPhone will not transfer photos to your computer if the device is locked and you are using a passcode. If you want to transfer photos, simply unlock (Slide to unlock and enter passcode) your device to transfer photos.Note: Plug the iphone to your computer in unlocked mode."I keep a passcode on my phone to keep my kids off of it and I never would have thought that would be why. Once I changed my settings and plugged it in, my device popped up and so did my pictures! Now I wonder if iTunes will do it automatically since the passcode is disabled.Thanks for the help guys!

How do I fix dell error code 0x8000FFFF: Catastrophic Error.

use photobucket, it's much easier and it syncs automatically.Or you can try to take the memory card out of your phone and stick it in the laptop to do the transfer. Use a micro sd card carrier that plugs into your laptop like a regular sd card. Or you can tell your phone to always connect as a usb mass storage device.

How do I transfer all of my photos on my phone to my laptop?

connect your phone to your laptop using your USB to mini USB cable. Now you want to click on Start, computer or my computer, then you will see all of the devices that are connected to your computer. But please make sure that your phone is awake. After you have found your connected device on your laptop, click on the device, then go to either internal storage(phone) or external sd . It depends on where your pictures are being saved. If you know that your pictures are being saved in the internal click on it then go to camera, dcim, and you should find your pictures. you all you want to coffee all of your pictures and paste them wherever you want on your laptop.

Connect your HTC Desire to your laptop. Select "Disk Drive" on the popup on your phone. Then use your laptop to search for the pictures.

P.S. On a HTC Wildfire, pictures taken are found at F:\dcim\100MEDIA (the drive letter may vary).

How do i get the pictures off my phone to get them on to my laptop?

  1. If you use a memory card,
  2. then what you have to do is to transfer the pictures to the memory card
  3. then use a memory card reader to transfer the pictures to your laptop.

  1. You can also transfer pictures to your laptop using the bluetooth device of your laptop.
  2. Turn on the bluetooth on your laptop
  3. and if the laptop does not have a bluetooth device, then you connect a bluetooth dongle to is and it will be able to receive pictures from your phone using the bluetooth dongle.
  4. But that could take time if you are transferring plenty pictures.
  1. Also you can transfer pictures from your phone directly,
  2. Connect the phone to your laptop using a USB cable,
  3. Then select open file to view folder from your laptop,
  4. Browse out the location of the pictures from your phone on your laptop,
  5. Then copy them and paste in your choice pf location on your laptop.
Those are the ways to transfer pictures from your phone to your laptop.

Take care and good luck
