Very confused user here.

 

I've just bought the new IMac, When I connected my iPad2 to the iMac and opened iPhoto on the iMac it asked to import photos. This proceeded, but when I checked it became clear that not all the events had been imported, even though iPhoto was saying that all the photos had been imported. There doesn't appear to be any reason why certain events have been missed - no difference in title, or date. How can I make sure all the photos are imported?

    iPhoto will import all photos from the iPad that are in the iPad's camera roll. Are you really missing events that do not appear in the import from the iPad, or other kinds of iPad albums?

    Did you use the "Import selected" button or import all?

    iPhoto ONLY imports photos from the IOS device's camera roll (photos taken with the IOS device's camera) - it does not import other photos - locally edited with other software - loaded - created wtih photo software - only taken photos

     

    If you are using PhotoStream y9ou can easily add those to your PS for import

    iPad questions are best ask in the iPad forum

    If the iPad works like the iPhone you can move photos into the Camera Roll as shown here:

    Then from there it should sync to your Mac. That's how I got the screenshot above to my iMac and into this post.

     

    If you have an iCloud account and Photo Stream enabled on both your iMac and iPad new photos to the Camera Roll will automatically be synced with your iMac and imported into iPhoto as long as you have the iPhoto/Photo Stream preferences set this way:

    Of course this is assuming the iPad functions similarly to the iPhone in this regard and I should think it would.
