I have an ipad2, and would like to store photos on it, organised into albums. However there seems to be no access

To photo albums, just cameraroll.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    If you have iOS 5+ installed then you should have an Edit button at the top right of the album selection screen - that will allow you to copy photos into new albums, but you will effectively just be pointing to your photos from those new albums, if you delete the original photo then all pointers to it will also be deleted. You may find it easier to do your photo organising on your computer and then sync those organised folders/albums to the iPad

    Sync your iPad to your Mac. Photos in albums in iPhoto on your Mac can be easily transferred to the iPad.


    First use iPhoto on your Mac to create albums and store photos.


    Then start iTunes on your Mac. Make sure it is the latest version. Then connect your iPad.

    Select your iPad in the left column of iTunes on your Mac.

    In the right column of iTunes select Photos. You can select to sync all photos in iPhoto or you can select to sync selected albums. I usually select the albums I want on my iPad.

    Then tap Apply. Your iPad will sync and the photo albums you selected will be copied to your iPad.


    To remove albums synced in this way do another sync but deselect the albums you no long want on your pad before hitting Apply.

    You can sync photos/albums from your Mac :


    You could also consider updating your iPad to the current version, unless you don't need any of the new features - updating to iOS 5+ :
