    I'm new guys. I need to know how to put the pics on my computer on my ipad. When I connect them I can put the iPad pics on the computer but not the computer pics on the iPad. Anyone want to help?

    How are you trying to transfer picture from your computer to your iPad? There are many different ways - using iTunes, the camera connection kit, email, WiFi transfer using a third party app, Cloud Storage?

    I don't really know. I plug the ipad into my laptop then bring my pics up and try to send them to the ipad which is one of the items on the left of my screen.

    Are you using iTunes to do this and a synchonisation operation. Can you give us a bit more detail of how you're currently trying to do this? If you've only a few pictures to send, you can email them to your iPad, of course.

    there are a lot of pics. I should be able to do it with itunes? Does this sync the whole computer or just songs and pics?

    It's up to you. You can decide which folders/albums you want to transfer to the iPad and which music, movies etc too. You might want to wait until someone more experienced than me in the use of iTunes comes along - or use the Search facility to find posts that have discussed this in the past. I'm not an iTunes user, so don't have a good understanding of how this is done.

    You can do it with iTunes. The albums will be stored in the Photos app, which is very limited in what it can do with pictures synced this way. They can only be altered on the computer and then synced again.

    iPhone, iPad and iPod touch: Syncing photos via iTunes

    You can use third party apps to copy and organize your photos. They are far more versatile that the Photos app. Their only real weakness is that other apps can not access their photo albums. Only photos in the Photos app can be seen by other apps. However these apps usually have the ability to save photos to the Photos app, making for a usable way to move photos, if not the most convenient. Photo-Sort and Photo Manager Pro get mentioned a lot, and positively.

    As long as you don't care about albums or organization there are other apps that just copy photos back and forth between the computer and Photos. I like PhotoSync.

    GoodReader is also an excellent general purpose app that is often (good enough) for a multitude of file management and storage tasks, and in some cases, like PDF reading and annotation, it is excellent.
