    Question Downloading pictures into separate folders on iPad

    Hi, I also have had problems downloading photo folders to my new iPad2. I have all my photos in My Pictures and within this sub folders for each album. When I select My Pictures it downloads all the photos into one folder on ipad and I lose sub folder structure of my albums. On iTunes on PC the Radio button is set to set to select all folders and I cannot change this to select individual folders (as I thought selecting these individually would allow me to create mutiple folders on iPad - albeit a painful process)

    Any ideas?

    Regards



    John

    What an expensive both time and money to just gather photos on My I Pad and I phone with a windows.
    They all need doors to throw out

    PC to iPad solution

    thanks for the help! Great instructions. If you find out anything about how to delete or organize your pics once they transfer to the iPad, please post. Again, thanks!!

There will be tabs across the top of that box. If I remember without looking photos will be the last tab. Whichever one it is, click on it. There you will have the options of how to handle your photos. You can click on sync all or select only specific folders. At this point it's your choice. Remember when you say all photos, it will sync ALL PHOTOS. That could be thousands if you are a prolific photographer. I suggest try a folder or two to get the feel of it. If you pic a folder with sub folders, each sub folder will be brought in as an individual stack or folder. Ipad doesn't support nested folders yet. Click on apply after you choose the folders you want. Those folders will be synced to your ipad and installed there on your next sync and will keep those photos on your ipad as long as you have them checked here. You can uncheck them at any time, but then they will be removed from the ipad. When you are comfortable that they are there and how you want them, you can check all the other folders you want. Please note that the pictures will be optimized for the ipad as they are loaded and it can take a little while depending upon the speed of your computer and number of photos you choose. Good luck, the process is much faster and easier to do and not nearly as complex as it may seem from this lengthy description.

    before I buy

    I have placed some one of a kind files on my daughter's PC. Videos, .jpgs, Nikon RAW, and .MOV and I want them on my iPad so I can use them. I do not want to use my Mac but, rather, use her computer at her house. Can I buy the ap on my iPad2, hook up to her computer via USB, and then just copy files? Can I copy both ways? Can I also do this on the MAC? I want that ease and freedom because, as a pretty new MAC user, and a 3 month old iPad user, I hate how hard it is. I am used to seeing files and folders. I am 65 and used to program in DOS and I want what I am used to. I want to see what is there and copy any way I want and to delete any way I want without using iTunes. Don't misunderstand, tho, I use iTunes every day for routine maintenance and updating my thousands of podcasts. But I need more than just that. Is this my solution?? Thanks so much for reading my missive.

    Plus, on You Tube, the author said it was on sale for just .99 and I cannot find that price in the store.

    Hi, I tried this but when I got to clicking 'apply' a message appears saying "Are you sure you want to remove 5 apps including Celcious2 from iPad etc.etc. What is that about -makes no sense to me t all.

    I use the dropbox to move photos from my PC to my iPad.

    Transfering Photo Files from Imac to Ipad

    Hi folks,
    Just got the Ipad! I tried to follow the directions herein, but don't seem to be able to get off square one! :-) I put all my photo files in a separate folder to be downloaded to my new Ipad. I connected to the Ipad from my IMAC and clicked on Itunes to bring it up. It goes directly to the Itunes store and does not allow me (or at least I can't find the button) to access syncing. I thought I was doing this just between my Imac and Ipad, but I finally realized that I am using precious data time since I have data connection enabled. I turned off the data connection, and now, of course, is sez I can't access the Itunes store. Well, I don't want to access the store. Can't I just download the photo files from my Imac without the cellular connection?

    I more use the windows version if iTunes, but I believe the Mac version is similar in this regard.

    Along the left is your list of favorites, playlists, and devices. With the iPad connected to your computer, you should see a little "ipad" (or whatever name you gave it) in your device list. If you click on that, you should be able to access your sync settings, including your photo sync folder location. I don't believe you need a data connection to do this.

    As another has reminded us (at least in windows), you can also access the DCIM folder on your usb-connected iPad with windows explorer. I assume the same can be done with your Mac finder window. If so, you could also drag-and-drop your pictures into this folder.

    OberkC,
    Thanks for the reply. As a new guy, it was not obvious that the Ipad device was not on the Ipad, but rather on my Imac. I have been able to download images. Thanks,

    Lincoln
