    I know someone must use a Galaxy SIII with a Mac and gets their pics into iPhoto. Any suggestions as to how to do that easily instead of emailing them to my Mac.

    The best way is open a new folder on your mac, transfer all your pictures from your phone to the folder and then select all and move them right into iphoto. Thats how I did it , its an extra step but it works great.

    This seems like the best way. I haven't transfered any photos over yet but this seems to be the most logical way.

    the best way is to have a dropbox account.

    have it sync all your photos and videos you took with the s3 automatically.

    have the app on your mac.

    just drag drop photos and videos you want from dropbox to iPhoto.

    this is my set up. Its wireless and painless.

    what a shame... all these methods do "work" however, copying files this way changes the attributes of the files and date/time to the time of import which really screws up timeline of photos. especially if you have lots of them.

    Any suggestions how to fix that? this is probably single reason I would be going back to iOS if there is no workaround.

    They don't, or at least iPhoto is not picking them up. I have the same issue as OP and marcin001. When I copy the photos on my SGS3 to my MacBook Pro's desktop via Kies Air, then import them into iPhoto, all of the photos get put into one "event".

    I don't have a solution, unfortunately. Like OP, this may be a deal-breaker for me to go back to iOS. Will keep trying, though.

    I'm not using keis at all. I use Dropbox. Drag drop them fro. My Dropbox folder in my Mac to iphoto/aperture library.

    There is an option when you import the photos to separate them by date so that it will not all be in one event

    I think you should have your photos automatically upload to google plus, then from there you can access them from your computer or wherever. That would be the easiest.

    The problem with Google plus is that they compress the images too and the videos. That is not an option for me.

    +1 for dropbox. It saved me when Kies deleted all my photos.

    I use an app called sweet home. It automatically syncs your photos to a nas drive when you are charging and are in range of your home WiFi network. So far it has been working pretty well. Then I import into iPhoto.

    Just came across this, looking for a solution. All of the solutions mentioned above are klunky two-step solutions, and don't really allow you to keep a clean pipeline of transferring, then deleting photos/videos off your phone.

    Is there really nothing like Sony Media Bridge or Nokia Multimedia Transfer for Samsung phones? How can Samsung be the #1 smartphone manufacturer in the world without such basic support for the Mac?

    Jeez...

    Maybe it has something to do with constantly being sued by Apple?

    Drop box, and drag photos to iphoto or aperture. That's what I do. And you can select the photos you want to go on your library instead of having everything dump to to photo stream and everything goes into your library.

    Plug phone phone into USB cable (I use it for charging anyway), select notification screen on phone and then change USB PC Connection from MTP to PTP and iPhoto will start up automatically and grab your pictures

    Ian is correct, this is the easiest and cleanest way to get photos/video into iPhoto.

    What is the easiest way to get my pics from my Galaxy into iPhoto? I use Mac computers.

    Another "CLEAN" Solution:

    Yoink 2.0+ Acts as a temporary Shelf, holding Multiple files straight from the Android File Transfer while you navigate to your desired iphoto destination and Unload them.

    NO MORE crazy copying TO and deleting FROM your computer.
    This is another fast way to transfer your photos because it's wired and there is NO 'Middle step'. ^However the solution above to plug as Camera seems to be better^ I still wanted to share this one

    I tried using Yoink to bridge Dropbox.com and iPhoto, but the site only lets you 'Drag' one file at a time.
