One of the coolest new technologies that Apple has added is that of Photostream. This makes it easy to synch photos across multiple devices, and what I really like is it makes the most recent pictures I've shot on my iPhone available inside of iPhoto without having to synch first. This means that pictures that I take, or if I've synched using the same Apple iTunes account across multiple phones in my family, I could pull those images in as well. To access your Photostream just click the button and any photo streams that you've turned on on different devices will become available.
When you click, you'll see all the recent pictures you've taken. Now multiple streams might combine and the number of photos you have available will be dependent on both time and how much you've shot. But you notice here that I can go in and start to access some of my pictures. So if I find a photo that I want to use in this project, I could simply Cmd+Click on it to select it. Holding down the Command key, I can grab other pictures, and then drag those into a desired album.
Now in this case, I don't have any pictures from this trip on my phone, but if I did I would be able to easily access them right through the Photostream here.
