Photos not showing up on iPhone? Help needed!

Views: 625 Replies: 5
So I opened a thread earlier about my iPhone being stuck in recovery mode and I somehow as able to finally restore it with deleting the data. I managed to get all my contacts, music, apps, notes... back but there's something really strange with my photos. They're not showing up in the photo app on the iPhone, well actually, they are but then they disappear again. It's like a constant loop where the iPhone loads the photos and then starts from scratch when it reaches about 1500 photos loaded. Number of photos just keeps changing. It's just so strange and can't find the same issue anywhere on google. Any help is appreciated! Here are some screenshots: " >" >" >

If you have My Shared Photos Stream enabled, then this has a 1,000 photos/30 days limit on it.

If you enable iCloud Photo Library on your computer and iPhone, then this limit disappears. You'll have access to all your images. If you're concerned about storage space on the iPhone, select Optimized library on the iDevice.

I used neither of those.

Before the 'Restore' I had 3000 photos on my iPhone without a problem.

Conventional procedure is to "import" your photos to whatever app you use on your computer for managing images. Otherwise, only images in your Camera Roll are backed up.

If yu are on a Mac, connect your iPhone via USB cable, then launch Image Capture utility located in your Applications folder, select your iPhone in the sidebar and import everything that's available there.

If you're on Windows, I presume theres a similar procedure.
