    I recommend you to use Syncios iPhone transfer, it can help you transfer all you data, like video, music, photos, etc. from your iPhone to your PC or iTunes. Meanwhile, you will not lost the contacts and photos on your iPhone. I have used for a long time. Just feel free to try.

    Usually you can do this without any app.

    You just have to plug-in your phone and unlock it (slide-to-unlock). On Windows there should be a new storage device you can access and the pictures will be somewhere in the file tree in a DCIM folder.

    On a Mac, again, plug-in your phone and unlock it. Then open the Image Capture app (which is installed by default). Within that app you can copy. import and delete pictures stored on the iPhone.

      i never trust online storage for some reason.. but theres advantage as well :)

      Online storage also uses generous amounts of data every time you upload pictures to the cloud or want to view them. Unless your data usage is NOT capped, this can potentially cost quite a bit. For me, this is a good enough reason to stick with local storage.
