    Managing Photos on iPad 3

    I am looking for a way to manage my photos on my iPad 3. The iPad photo app is very limited. I installed the app, Photo Manager Pro, but it will not let me manage the photos I already have on my iPad. It appears you have download the photos to a separate folder for Photo Manager Pro to manage the photos. This would mean I would have two copies of my photos or I would have to delete all the photos I have in the iPad photo app. Does anyone know of a good app that can manage the native iPad photos?

    Photo Shack Pro.

    Several members have recommended the app. I tried it, but decided I didn't need or want it. I can't say I gave it a fair trial. My iPad photo organization needs are modest. The basic iTunes photo syncing does what I need/want.

    You may find the app suits you.

    I would like to know how to edit my photo in messaging. I use my messaging to stay in touch with my daughter in the U.S. and my
    messaging shows a picture that is not even in my library!

    I'Messages uses the photo from your contact information.

    You choose your contact in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars. It's the My Info option under the Contacts settings.

    You can change the photo in Contacts by going to that contact, tapping Edit, tap the photo, and choose one of the options.

    The instructions for Settings was just to find out what contact you'd assigned to yourself (or assign one).

    To change the photo you need to edit that contact in the Contacts app; though as you discovered you can also assign a photo to that contact directly from the Photos app. I forgot about that method.

    Just connect back to iTunes, turn off the Photo syncing, and sync/apply.

    Now that is a useful piece of advice, and will replace the hack job I used to recommend. Thanks, twerppoet.

    Well, as long as you are using iTunes. Not everyone does.

    I'm curious. How were you recommending it. You never know, I might need a hack trick down the road.
