What I want to do; import photos from my camera to the iPad 2, weed some out, edit a few more, and later upload (sync?) the remaining edited photos to my PC.
I tried following the instructions in "iPad For Dummies" by Baig and Levitus. But they are brief and seem incomplete. Iimporting .jpg photos from my SD card via Apple's Camera Connection Kit worked perfectly. And editing photos with Photos and Photoshop Express was a breeze; but I can't get them into my PC.
I created a new directory on the PC to receive them, selected this directory in iTunes under the Photo tab while the iPad was connected, and clicked Apply. On the first attempt, iTunes crashed. The second attempt resulted in a new directory and two mystery files created in the PC directory. The new directory is named "iPod Photo Cache". The files are "Photo Database" (no suffix) 2 KB, and "PhotoDatabaseReserve.tmp" 1 MB. I tried opening "Photo Database" with iTunes, but iTunes just came up with no photos in it (where would they go anyway?).
I also noticed that the edited pictures I saved in Photoshop Express were in album Camera Roll intead of All Imports, where they came from. At least the pictures are still in the iPad somewhere, and on the camera's SD card. Advice please!
