2.    Use iTunes. When you open iTunes, yeah, you can see all your photos, however, no utility that allows a transfer, photos just can be synced to computer into an unreadable backup file.
3.    Use iCloud. More precisely, iCloud is just allows you to backup iPhone photos on the Cloud. Moreover, it will delete everything stored in iPhone after restore.
4.    Use E-mail. This is a practicable solution, but when you have a large number of photos, the work is troublesome.
