OK. So I was trying the easy way when it should be obvious that since the iPad lacks a file system (waiting for 4.0) that would behove me to go back to iPhoto and organize into named folders, then sync with iPad the image/files that I'd want on the iPad.
As it was my first sync with iPhoto brought over many I'd didn't want and Many duplicates. After cleaning up iPhoto on MBP and syncing with iPad went from 2,000+ images on iPad to 300+.
I have been unable to move photos from iphoto to my ipad. I connect my ipad to the computer, i go to the Advance tab in itunes and select "Choose Photos to Share", I select iphoto, I select an album, I click the apply button. I disconnect the ipad then reconnect. The ipad syncs - but then, no photos on the ipad. What am I doing wrong? I have seen advice referring to a "photo tab" in itunes. I am not seeing a photo tab.
If I use the Apple adapter I can take photos straight from an SD card to the iPad. However, if I sync photos into the MacBook, there seems to be no way of dragging and dropping from there to the iPad via iTunes. I get the same message mentioned by others, namely the the photos cannot be played on the iPad, but the direct transfer method clearly demonstrates that they can. It's doing my head in! Any ideas....???
Your question is answered in this very thread. Go back one page.
I have pictures on my MacBook pro, it's difficult for me to import all these pictures in to my iPad 2 as lm a new user can some Body help thanks
Are the images in iPhoto? If they are they should sync straight across when you connect your iPad to your MacBook Pro. When your iPad is connected, click on the iPad name in the left hand pane of iTunes, then click on photos tab at top of the iTunes screen, you'll then see the syncing options, check which ever options are the ones that you want then hit the sync button again.Originally Posted by Kingsman81
