When I edit pictures on my Iphone 5s and try to transfer them to my windows computer, they always turns back to the original photo (before editing) and sometimes they are rotated too.
I have heard that I could use Photoshop Elements 12, but the problem is still the same.

I'm sorry if I'm not allowed to link to other pages, but my problem is explained there...I just can't make it work.

Mads Hansen,

Are you trying to import these pictures in Photoshop Elements 12 Editor or Organizer? Could you explain a little bit about your workflow? Also which application are you using on iPhone 5s to edit them? I will try the same at my end as well.

Hi.
I am trying to import them in "organizer".
I just use the edit buttom, which you can press after you have choosed a picture from your camera roll.
So I don't use any programs to edit my pics.
When my pics are edited on my iphone 5s, I connect the device to my computer, opens PSE12 --> organizer --> import -->from camera or card reader... --> "get photos from: iphone --> get media.

Now they are all transfered to photoshop, but they are not edited anymore, but back to the original, before I edited them on my iphone 5s.

Hello Mads Hensen,
I got your workflow. I tried the same worklow with an iPhone 5s. Actually the issue is not at Elements Organizer end as if i import the image to any photo application or say just copy on Windows explorer as well, it shows the unedited version only. This essentially means iPhone is editing these pics non-destructively and hence even after saving the edit, it does not save the edits over original file. It is keeping those edit list somewhere in its database and showing those edit in its application only. If you copy that image file anywhere else, it is shown unedited.

Let me know if you have any questions.

okay, thank you.
So I can't see the edited pictures on my computer?
I still dont get it, because on this link (from Apple's homepgae) is says that I can use PSE to see the edited pictures?

Mads,
I rechecked, both Lightroom and Elements show the unedited versions. Did you check in iPhoto?

Hi,
I can't check in iPhoto, because I don't have a mac, but a laptop.
That's why I am trying in PSE12, because I have heard that it should be possible, but just don't know how to do it.
