Connect and select your iPad on the left-hand side of your computer's iTunes, and on the right-hand side there should be a series of tabs, one of which should be Photos - if you select that tab you can then select which photo folders to sync to the iPad. There is a bit more info on this page. You will need to sync all the photos that you want on the iPad together in one go as only the most recent photo sync remains on the iPad - not including photos in a subsequent sync is how you delete them from the iPad.

If you find the restrictions or the (in some circumstances, major) storage hit of the built-in Photos app too annoying, go for a third-party image viewer. Several of them have fixed the most annoying problems of stock Photos and indeed worth switching to.
There's a lot of related talk at https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3812013 ; I really recommend checking out my posts starting on page 19, from May 7, 2012 2:42 AM.
