So you've taken many great photos with your iPhone 6s/6 and want them to be printed. May be you want to save the digital photos in a photo album. Or perhaps you just hope to display them as artwork on your wall. But how do you print pictures from your iPhone, how big should you print and at what quality?

FonePaw iOS Transfer allows you to export iPhone photos to PC as a whole or selectively. In this way, you can not only print iPhone photos in batch, but also backup them on computer at the same time.
