I'm trying to get photos from my iPhone to my computer, I've tried 3 ways so far:
Using the 'import photos' feature in Windows 11, this just produces a whole bunch of duplicates with no easy way to discern which is which, meaning I'd need to manually go through photos of photos/videos and delete them.
Dragging the photos directly from the phone using explorer, this leaves me with a whole load of AAE files and the originals, meaning any edits, crops, video trims etc are not applied.
Using the Photos app of my wife's Macbook - this is as close as I've gotten, the photos are all there and all seem to have copied across with the edits, but I have no way of then getting them to my PC, they're locked away in a 'Photos Library' and if I right click in finder to try to browse it, nothing works. If I open it in finder, it just opens up in the Photos app again.
Any suggestions please? I've spent so many hours trying to do this now and I'm at a loss. Thank you :)
