Easy But Limited
Every time you USB connect iPhone with computer, a greeting box pops out asking whether you want to "Import pictures and videos" to computer, or "Open device to view files". This is the easiest cut to transfer pictures, easy but with limited capability.

1. If the "AutoPlay" box doesn't pop out when you insert an iPhone to computer, you can re-enable it in: Open My Computer > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > AutoPlay Scroll to the end of this page and check under "Devices > iPhone" for "Ask me everytime". You can disable this option by toggling "Take No Action".
2. Unlock before you transfer pictures from iPhone to computer, otherwise all files won't be readable on computer.

If you're a Windows user, please take a look at the system requirements, you need:

1. Windows 7 (or newer).
2. iCloud for Windows.
3. iPhone with iOS 8 or newer (iCloud Drive is optional, and setting it up enables you to access iWork APP).
