iBackup Extractor lets you browse, save and retrieve photos from your iTunes backup made when you last connected your iOS device. The program enables you to recover photos you may have deleted from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, which were previously backed up to your computer by iTunes. Any images contained in your iTunes backup can be restored - iPhone camera images, photos which were messaged to you, or saved to your device using iTunes, or just downloaded from the internet to your device.

Browsing and Viewing Your Images

To view your images, download and install iBackup Extractor on your computer. Start the program from your desktop. Choose the iTunes backup you wish to extract images from by clicking on "Select backup for device..." in iBackup Extractor. Then click on the "Images" button in the category list.

iBackup Extractor displays thumbnails of all the images in your iTunes backup.

To view a large version of an image, double click the photo entry in the photo list, or click the "View Photos" button on the Photo tool bar. To return to the thumbnail views, click the Close (X) button at the top of the "View Photos" window.
