So, I know that the photos edited via the Camera app can't be copied to a Windows PC along with the edits.
I realise that the alternative is to email 5 photos at a time.
This is obviously cumbersome. Can anyone suggest alternatives?

Okay. I've found it.
The easiest alternative to getting the edits onto your PC, instead of emailing them to yourselves is to upload it to Flickr.
Obviously, you'll need iOS7, as it has native Flickr integration.
You can upload 10 photos at once which is far better than emailing.
Moreover, if you're like me, who backups photos to a cloud, you can use IFTTT to create a trigger and upload it to your favorite service whenever a new photo is uploaded.
There are a couple of wireless syncing options.
If you want to upload a small number of photos I would suggest using Google Drive / Dropbox; both support multiupload, you only select the ones you want to upload and they will just appear in according folders on your PC.
If you want to upload your entire photo stream you can start using Google Photos. It can be configured to upload only when on wifi.
I had hundreds of photos edited on iOS that I needed to transfer (yes, I actually did edit that many photos in my case)
Here's a solution I recently used, https://send-anywhere.com/ (free at the time of this writing)
Both the sender and receiver can receive/send files via the website, Android App or iOS App.
So, it's not just for PCs, but any platform. And obviously, it's not just for photos, but for files in general.
In my case, I was trying to transfer edited photos from my iPhone to my Mac, and I initially used Photos to import them, which transferred the original ones (i.e. not what I wanted).
Then I used AirDrop, which did transfer the edited ones, but are all named as FullSizeRender.jpg, FullSizeRender(1).jpg, FullSizeRender(2).jpg, etc, but not in the order I selected. It almost seemed like whichever file gets fully received first gets the available name first (again, not what I wanted)
So I ended up selecting my photos on iPhone, sharing to the Send Anywhere app, and downloaded the files from my Mac. I got the same file name patterns, but this time they were all in the sequence I expected and wanted, which I can live with.
Those were photos of dozens of pages of notes I had, so I specifically didn't want them to be transferred and named in random order.
From the AirDrop experience I mentioned, if you actually have two Apple devices, I'm speculating that the edited photos get transferred from one device to another.
If this is true, then you can first send the edited photos from one device to the second, then through USB/wire, transfer your edited photos from the second device to your PC.
I can't actually try this yet - if someone can confirm this, that would be great.
