Got the iPad today synced all photos and albums through iTunes. It all came in the orders but every single of over 1000 photos I synced is blurry. It does not make sense... All o them in order but all BLURRY?
Any thoughts? Thnks

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4), iPad

    Try resetting the iPad then see if the images are still blurry.

    Reset iPad: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    All your preferences and settings are reset but calendars, and media, such as your songs and videos, are not deleted.

    I tried resetting. Did not work. It looks like they turned into very poor resolutions images when transferred. Thanks Carolyn!

    Problem solved after I deleted all the photos first. and restarted syncing one album at a time. i am guessing that syncing too many albums with too many pictures at the same time caused the problem.

    My guess is that when it tried to fit all 1000 photos into the pad there wasn't adequate space for the pictures so it squeezed them all down to fit.

    Too bad there's no option to tell it not to 'optimize' my photos. I'd rather have more control.

    Same problem with my iPad 64G. Told today by Apple Genius that uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes would likely clear up the issues with my existing images, but that the problem could be expected to reoccur with new images. I was told that Apple is aware of the problem and is working on it. I was told that an update expected in the weeks ahead MIGHT fix this but that more likely it would came with the upgrade to version 4 late Summer. Bummer, but better that being told it must be something I'm doing by someone without a clue.

    Given this is new ground, I'm not surprised. In many ways the iPad is like a big iPhone and knowing one they learn the other. But with the iPhone photo transfers are seldom to the iPhone with its small screen but from the iPhone to the computer.

    All my transfers to date have been directly from an SD card using the Camera Kit, and all look good. Eventually I'll do what you did and find the same issue -- and, thanks to you, know why!

    I just imported 2,000 images, no lose in quality. Info on the images show the images are the same as the originals. The iPad doesn't care how many photos are on it.

    It looks like iTunes uses the thumbnail when importing .NEF files instead of the actual raw image, and hence makes the resulting images low res and blurry looking on the iPad/iPhone. The solution is to convert your raw images to .jpeg before importing with iTunes.
