Hi Werner,

You can follow the below methods to transfer photos from your iPhone 8 to PC:

Method 1: Transfer iPhone 8 photos to computer via USB.

Unlike Android system, there are many restrictions on iOS system, Apple prevent third-party applications from accessing its data. When connect your iPhone to computer, the only thing you can access is the photos.
  1. Connect your iPhone 8/8 Plus to your computer with an USB cable, and tap Trust on your iPhone screen to let this computer access your data.
  2. After connected successfully, open Computer, find the Portable Devices > iPhone 8 Plus.
  3. Open the iPhone 8 Plus option and the sub-folder, until you see a DCIM photo folder, which contains several folders that saved your photos. Simply open it and copy the photos and pictures to your computer. You can also drag and drop the photos and pictures to your computer.

Method 2. Transfer all iPhone 8 photos to Windows PC with iCloud for Windows.
iCloud for Windows, which allows you to access your photos, contacts, calendars, files, and more from any of your devices. With iCloud Photo Library, any new photos and videos that you take on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch automatically download to your PC. And you can upload new photos and videos from your PC so that you can access them from your other devices too.
Step 1: Download and install iCloud for Windows on your computer, and restart your computer. The program would open itself after restarting your computer, otherwise, you can open it manually, and sign in your Apple ID.
Step 2: Of course, make sure you have enabled iCloud Photo option and iCloud Photo Library on your iPhone 8. After that, you are allowed to choose the features and content that you want to keep up to date across your devices, simply make the change as you like and click on Apply button, then click Close.
