iTunes back-up - can I just sync texts?

Is there some way I can restore texts alone from an iTunes back-up? Otherwise I believe I'll lose new photos taken since the back-up.

I don't think photos will be affected.. Anyway, to be completely sure, you can grab the photos individually.

Plug in your iPhone (make sure there is no passcode lock enabled), browse to My Computer and you should see your iPhone. Go there and copy all the photos to your computer.

Restore the back up to get your texts.

If the photos are missing from the phone then move them from the computer back onto your phone.

If you're on a Mac then iPhoto can import all of the photos without backing up through iTunes.
