I uploaded all of my iPad's photos to iPhoto('08) thinking it would be easier to delete and organize them. Now that I've done that in iPhoto I need help finding out how to delete all the photos from the iPad and have the iPhoto photos imported from iPhoto back to the iPad.


iPhoto '08, OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)

    You can delete the photos on your iPad from the iPad - see the iPad forum for more on that - or with Image Capture (in the Applications Folder)

     

    You can sync from iPhoto to your iPad via iTunes.

    This workflow may do what you want:

     

    1 - launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and create a new library.

    2 - connect the iPad to your Mac with the new library open.

    3 - import all of the photos from the iPad into the new library.

    4 - select the option to delete all of the photos from the iPad.

    5 - disconnect the iPad and delete the new library.

    6 - launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and select your original library.

    7 - assemble the photos destined for the iPad so you can easily identify them by album or event which you alread have done.

    8 - launch iTunes and connect the iPad to your Mac.

    9 - go to the photos section for you iPad and synce those particular albums or Events with the iPad.

    That will get those specific iPad photos back into the iPad.
