    The short answer is no, it will not upload photos to a card, only download them from the card. BUT, you already have all you need to import photos to your computer. Use the Lightning cable that came with your phone, and plug it into a USB port on your computer. You can then upload the photos through an iTunes backup, or you can choose to have your computer recognize the iPhone as a camera (most computers will, even Windows PC's), and upload them directly into your photo file on your computer. Depending on what type of computer you have, this will be different folders. For a Mac, you can choose to upload them directly into iPhoto. On a Windows PC, you can select whatever folder you normally use to upload photos for Photoshop.
