All of the photos that you want to put on the iPad should be synced via iTunes. All photos that you want to keep on the iPad must be included in each subsequent sync. In other words, if you decide to sync photos from a different folder than you synced from previously, the previously synced photos will be erased from the iPad. So you have to include all photos every time that you sync, from one main photos folder only.
Try this. Make sure that you see the sidebar in iTunes 11 by going to View>Show Sidebar from the iTunes menu.iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6.1.3, 64 GB

Another way. You can use a USB flash drive & the camera connection kit.
Plug the USB flash drive (works the same with an SD card) 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.)

I use WiFi transfer app to move photos and videos back and forth between iPad and computer. I can then keep/delete on iPad whenever I want easily. Don't have to worry about syncing particular folders using iTunes. The app also allows me to transfer photos and videos directly between my iPad and iPhone, too.

I use Dropbox to get my photos to/from my iPad to my computer wirelessly (no iTunes). The process below is one I posted a few weeks ago for the opposite process than what you're wanting to do (from iPad to computer) but Dropbox will work both ways. Just set up a Dropbox folder on your computer and set up the Dropbox app on your iPad and they will both be in sync automatically.
Hope this helps!
---from a post I did a few weeks ago---
The Dropbox app has a very cool auto-upload process that will automatically upload photos from the iPad Camera Roll to Dropbox.
- First sign up for a free Dropbox account from your computer.
- Then, download the free Dropbox app on your iPad.
- Log in to the Dropbox app on the iPad with your new account and click on the Photos icon in the lower left corner of the screen (second one from the left).
- Select "Enable Camera Upload" and "Only Wi-Fi." The upload process will begin for all existing photos in the Camera Roll.
From now on, all future photos taken by the iPad will automatically upload to the Dropbox folder. You can then download your photos from Dropbox to your computer by going to http://www.dropbox.com, logging in to your account, and downloading the photos. You can then put the photos on a USB drive or burn to a CD or upload them to a photo processing website.
Hope this helps!
