I recently inherited an iPod touch from my 23-year-old sister who passed away. I found pics of her that she only had on the iPod that we don’t have anywhere else. I would like to know if there is a way to download them to my computer before I reset the iPod. I am desperate to keep the pictures, please help!!!! Thank you.
There are several third-party tools that can be used to easily copy photos from an iPod touch. One such app worth looking at is iPod Access Photo, which is available for both the Mac and Windows platforms. A trial version is available so you can check it out and confirm that it will work for you; a license costs $13.
Note that photos are not stored on the iPod touch in their original resolution, but rather a resized version is copied to the iPod touch by iTunes. This means that the maximum resolution photos you will be able to recover is approximately 640x480, although obviously, this is far better than not having these photos at all.
