How can I transfer my photos from my computer which is in my photo library on my Dell to my new IPAD? I have an app called Sky Drive but no help I have iCloud also. Can someone please help me or do I have to sit and send one photo at a time from my computer to my new 3rd generation IPAD. Please Help. Thank You Michelle Elia Mistye1945

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


    If you have your photos in SkyDrive then there is also a SkyDrive app which you can use to copy photos from it to the Camera Roll album in the Photos app.

    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.,; 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.)
