Just got me an iPad 2" installed iTunes on my pc. Have been trying to copy pics onto it but cannot do so as the photo tab on iTunes is not there. Please help as this is very frustrating.
I don't even have a device's icon.
Therein lies your problem.
Is your iPad plugged into your computer with iTunes open? If so and you don't see a Device, i.e. your iPad, then iTunes is not seeing your iPad, thus the reason you can't do what you want.
