When I decided to update my iPhone 4S to iPhone 6s, I transferred all the photos from my iPhone 4S to computer. Now I want to transfer the photos from PC to iPhone 6s, but I cannot figure out how to do it. Could anybody help me please?

After getting a new iPhone, some users can’t find out a good way to transfer the photos they have backed up in PC to their new iPhone. In fact, transferring photos from PC to iPhone is not that difficult. iCloud and iTunes can both be helpful. Besides, the iPhone transfer software is also help for you to transfer photos from computer to iPhone.

Part 1. Transfer Photos from Computer to iPhone with iCloud/iTunes

Using “Photo Stream” to transfer photos from PC to iPhone automatically with iCloud is pretty convenient. Go to “Settings > iCloud > Photos (Photo Stream on iOS 6)” and then turn on My Photo Stream. Then get your iCloud started on your PC. In the iCloud Control Panel, Check the “Photos” and then enable the “Photo Stream” option. After that, import the photos into the “Photo Stream” folder on your PC, and then you will be able to view the photos on your iPhone. Using iCloud to transfer photos from computer to iPhone is easy, but this method needs Wi-Fi connection. Only over Wi-Fi connection can iCloud sync photo on PC with iPhone. The following steps will show you how to transfer photos from PC to iPhone with iCloud.

Using iTunes to sync photos with iPhone is also easy. But you should be very careful of the syncing function of iTunes because it is a double-edge sword. Once wrong click, you may lose data in your iPhone. The following steps are going to show you how to transfer photos from PC to iPhone with iTunes:

1. Plug your iPhone into computer via the USB cable. Launch iTunes if it doesn’t launch automatically.
2. Find “File” option on the upper left corner. Then click “Add File to Library”.
3. Select photos from your PC and then iTunes will sync the photos to iPhone automatically.

You may need your Apple ID to start the photo syncing. If iTunes asks, type your Apple ID into the blank, and then the synchronization starts.

But as mentioned above, iTunes is a double-edge sword. iTunes has very strict content management system, and the software never allows users to transfer files which are not got from iTunes back to computer or iTunes Library. So when you are transferring photos from PC to iPhone, iTunes wants to sync with your iPhone. Once syncing with it, you may lose the files which are not got from iTunes.
