By photos app I mean the one that stores all my photos and comes standard with the iPad.
I use my iPad (version 2 and 64 gb) to back up my photos when on vacation. I have the camera connector kit and transfer images each day. This used to work great but has been behaving strangely of late.
Often I only transfer part of a memory card as it isn't full. The next day I attach the camera again and all the images on the card are shown as thumbnails and those previously transferred have a tick on them. I get a message that some of these photos are already in the ipad and do I wish to skip the duplicates. I select yes. In the past this worked perfectly and I would get a new folder of images in the events with that day's date. But now I get the thumbnails showing and only some of them are ticked to show they were previously transferred to the iPad. So these are the only ones considered as duplicates and everthing else is transferred even if already transferred previously. I will get another folder dated the previous day and with many of the previously transferred photos in it.
This means that each day I have to go in a delete all these duplicate images and as that is one selected at a time it is tedious. I work with many hundreds of images each day and it takes a lot of extra time having to delete these duplicated images. I don't know why this is happening. It never used to.
Is there a way of resetting the Photos app to how it was when I first bought the iPad? I don't want to reset the whole iPad and risk losing all my purchased apps and settings. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
