CopyTrans Photo is a utility from WindSolutions that allows you to manage the photos on your iPod or iPhone by dragging and dropping them to and from your PC. The interface is extremely easy and simple to grasp with the window split into 3 sections — the first showing the photos on your iPod or iPhone, the second showing the photos in the currently selected folder and the third offering an explorer view of all the folders on your hard drive.
When testing with both an iPod and iPhone I found managing photos on the devices very straight forward and intuitive. It was a great utility when wanting to transfer photos taken on an iPhone to my PC and vice-versa, with easy to view thumbnails.
If you sync photos to your iPod with iTunes, you don’t have much choice where customisation is concerned, like everything else Apple. Using CopyTrans Photo, you can copy photos to and from your iPod in full resolution. Before deciding whether or not to copy your photos over, you can also view a full screen slideshow of your selected photos, or entire albums.
Also, CopyTrans Photo is currently the only software out there (at least that we’re aware of) that can transfer photos to an iPhone or iPod Touch on Windows other than iTunes itself, but obviously with this software alternative you get the full-sized photo in terms of image quality and resolution.
I found CopyTrans Photo to be an easy to use, convenient alternative to using iTunes’ somewhat limited photo management system. It easily found both my iPod and my iPhone and transferred photos without a problem. The slideshow feature was a nice addition to a good program, and I recommend that you download it and give it a try if you’re looking for a photo management program to go with your iPod.
