    Connect the iPad to yoru computer and select the 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 - synced photos can't be deleted directly on the iPad, instead they are deleted by not including them in the next photo sync.

    Thank you for your quick response.  Now, please tell me what I need to do to do this on iTune as this app was a part of my package, but when I click one it, there are no icons to do this.

     

    Your assistance is much appreciated, as I am not tech savyyyy.

     

    Thanks

    What app was part of what package ?

     

    Syncing photos from your computer to the iPad is done via iTunes on your computer. Connect the iPad to your computer and select the iPad on the left-hand side of your computer's iTunes, and on the right-hand side there should be a series of tabs including one for syncing photos : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4236 . The photo folders that you select should then sync to the Photos app on the iPad

    Another way. You can use a USB flash drive & the camera connection kit.

     

    Plug the USB flash drive into your computer & create a new folder titled DCIM. Then put your movie/photo files into the folder. The files must have a filename with exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension (i.e., my-movie.mov; DSCN0164.jpg).

     

    Now plug the flash drive into the iPad using the camera connection kit. Open the Photos app, the movie/photo files should appear & you can import. (You can not export using the camera connection kit.)
