-First thing you need to do is make sure you sync your iphone with itunes so all your pictures on your iphone 5 is sync onto iTunes on your PC -Second, now that all of your iphone pics are on iTunes, you should add the additional pics to the itunes photo library for your phone -Lastly sync again and all of your photos you added to your library will be on your phones. WARNING: if you have photo's on your phone that is not sync'd to iTunes and you add PC photos onto your itunes photo library to be sync'd, and then you sync... then you risk losing your iphone photos. I did this once 3 years ago and I lost all of my San Diego vacation photos 😞

-First thing you need to do is make sure you sync your iphone with itunes so all your pictures on...Syncing and backing up are two different things on iTunes. if you right click on your phone on iTunes there is usually a back up option. Check this our. The first articale is about syncing. The second last article is about backing up How ever I would try what Robert suggested at the very bottom of this post first

You seem to be refering to everything you've pout on your iPhone, but I don't think you'll loose everything! Is it the first time you are syncing your iPhone with iTunes?

Ok Don't know why but in itunes it wants to transfer everything in my pictures and when i do choose a folder it wants to transfer whole folder, i choose just one pic My choice is Sync folder and all folders can't remove dot and put it on selected folders. Anyways i decided that i'm going to muscle it and use drop box it'll take time for about 300 pictures manually but i"ve spent days getting this far and still nothing. So now i have another situation. I dont know what i did but, somehow my iPone 5 has uploaded every good and junk email address from my pc and filled my contacts what a mess. any way to delete the contact by 30 or 40 at a time or do i have to open each contact, edit it and then delete one at a time. Thanks in advance

In iTunes, for contacts/address book, look for the source that iTunes is referring to (Outlook, adress book, etc) You will need to remove the contacts you dont want from this source and then re-sync.

Close enough that I understand. You have google contacts set up on your PC so that is where the adress book is coming from you will have to clean out your Google Contacts and re-sync Contacts only. And like I said, the other option would be to restore from a backup. Otherwise you have have to clean your contacts manually

where are my google contacts?

They should be in your google/gmail account. Check to see if the contacts match with what was sync'd

I think your contact problem may be related to your hotmail account. Or w/e e-mail service you've signed up to. For exemple, when you go to (I don't have my iPhone with me, so I'll try and guess) Settings, E-mail you will see your e-mails accounts that are on your phone. Therefore, you should click on one of them and there you would have the possiiblity to choose whether or not you want to sync : Contacts, Calendar, Birthdays, etc. You would have to uncheck the contacts part. Don't do a restore yet.
