iPod Access Photo... Need to get photos off your iPod or iPhone and back onto your Mac? If so you have probably realized that the iPod stores photos in ithmb files. These files contain all the photo data for your iPod to display but can not be read by regular photo programs. iPod Access Photo solves this problem by allowing you to select individual photos and albums to be moved back onto your computer or an external hard drive. iPod Access Photo is the perfect companion to iPod Access. With both programs installed on your computer you have complete control over all the media on your iPod that is important to you.

Please add iPhone support soon! There's no way to get pictures back off an iPhone if your computer crashes, so I'm eagerly awaiting an update.

Just tried this excellent program on both my Nano and my Video iPod and it worked great. It was easy to use. The pictures looked the best if the "Full Resolution" is selected in iTunes like on my video iPod. It was great to get pictures off my iPod onto my work and Mom's computer.

iPod Access photo can only retrieve the photos as they are on your iPod. As the previous reviewer noted sometimes these images are small. This is the primary reason iPod Access Photo is shareware. If the quality of supportted photos on your iPod is not acceptable please do not purchase the program, the registered version will not improve photo quality. Registering the application will however remove the Findley Designs Logo watermark on your photos.

From the ReadMe file:

What resolution will my photos be?
When you copy photos to your computer iPod Access Photo will always select the highest resolution possible for the transfer. If you selected "Include full resolution photos" in iTunes then this will always be the full resolution file. If not the following are the max sizes available on different iPods:

iPod Video = 650x480 (TV Resolution)
iPod Photo = 650x480 (TV Resolution)
iPod Nano = 176x132 (Nano Screen Resolution)
