    iTunes doesn't import photos, it only exports them. iPhoto imports them.... unless i missed a meeting;-) – Tetsujin Nov 26 '14 at 5:10

  • then could you clarify your question? Use the edit button just underneath. – Tetsujin Nov 26 '14 at 13:34
  1. Quit iTunes
  2. Delete ~/Pictures/iPod Photo Cache (may or may not exist)
  3. Go to `~/Pictures/iPhoto Library
  4. CTRL+click > Show Package Contents
  5. Delete iPod Photo Cache inside the library
  6. Try syncing again.

Worked for me.

    For anyone else finding this post, the above answer worked for me, even though I had to skip step 2 since I didn't have a cache at that location (OSX 10.10). – Brent Miller Jan 16 '15 at 22:44
