Clicking "Copy Images" in this way will copy all images from the selected conversation. If you only want to copy certain images, select them first, then hit "Copy Images".
Furthermore, if you need to copy only images from messages within a certain timeframe (e.g. messages from last month), you can narrow the displayed images by using the "Set Date" function in TouchCopy. Simply click the button and set the dates to search between. Apply the date range, and TouchCopy will return only the images sent and received between your dates.
Firstly, you will need to open TouchCopy and connect your iPhone when prompted to do so. Once TouchCopy has loaded your device data, click the 'Messages' tab on the left-hand side of TouchCopy. You can then scroll down to see all of the contacts you have had text, iMessage, and WhatsApp conversations with.

Next, select the conversation containing the photos that you wish to transfer to your computer. The conversation thread will appear in the pane on the right of TouchCopy.
To copy only select photos, please set a date range which will filter the conversation to show only the section which you would like to copy. To copy all of the photos in this conversation, simply hit the "Copy Messages"(PC) or "Copy to Mac".
Finally, TouchCopy will prompt you to select a location on your computer to which to save your photos. When the save is complete, you'll see a file containing your selected text, along with a separate folder containing your photos from the iPhone messages!
