Or when you intend to make backups of your photos for fear that they are erased mistakenly or are lost on account of your iPod's being formatted or other systematic problems, or when you need to reclaim more space for other data, transferring photos is vitally important. Although you can send them to the computer by email, it's too time-consuming and cumbersome. You might have noticed that you can copy files from computer to your iPod with ease, but rarely backwards, especially those synced with iTunes, due to Apple's protection of its copyright.
