My iPhone 4S allows me to get to any contact on the list and edit it -- no surprise, so far. It allows me (on edit mode) to copy the picture of my contact. I apply my finger on the picture and small tabs come on: one says "copy" and the other says "paste". I press my finger on the "copy" tab. How and where can I paste it in order to be able to transfer that picture somewhere else?

I've tried to paste the picture on the Photos / Camera Roll, to no avail. I've read instructions on how to get to my Home folder/Application Support/AddressBook/Images to try and find the picture I am looking for. The funny thing is... I've synced my iPhone all along on this computer and it only shows one item on the Images folder -- the Apple icon.

I've connected the iPhone to the same computer and then couldn't find a way of getting to the pictures from the contact list. Any step-by-step approach on how to sync the iPhone and the AddressBook, leaving aside the computerese gobbledeegook, would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Think of it as being on the same clipboard that copied text goes to. – Louis Nov 16 '12 at 0:32

After you've copied the image from the address book, paste it into an email to yourself. You can then access your email from a computer and download the image.
