    Hello Ipad Forum members

    My wife is the primary Ipad user in my household, but I am generally the computer fixer and fixer-upper. Therefore, I likely will be using this forum more often to figure out the workings of her Ipad. So, thanks in advance to everyone on here.

    Currently I am trying to find out whether or not one can load photos and/or videos from a PC to an Ipad. I already have an Ipod primarily set up for music with Itunes on my PC, but really don't want to sync it to the Ipad. I assume I need to ask for this information somewhere on the forum.

    If you don't want to sync your photos from PC to iPad (and that's not such a bad way to do it), another method is to purchase an Apple Camera Connection Kit and transfer the photos to your iPad if you still have those photos on your camera SD card. Even if you don't, you can always Copy/Paste them from PC to an SD card and then get them onto your iPad with the CCK.

    Thank you from down under. This is exactly what I was hoping for. It's a perfect way to add pictures and videos without going thru the sync process. Thanks again.

    Hi Buddy in Texas

    Welcome to the forum. Andrew has given you the answer I would have given. I use the SD card connector kit. It's very quick and easy to SE. You will also get a USB cable connector along with the SD Card connector. The USB Connector is as easy to use.

    Enjoy. I hope we can see some of your photos / hear how you get on with the kit.

    Richard

    No worries! You may be interested in a free app I use called PSExpress to very easily edit/manipulate the photos you get onto your iPad that way. It's quite a nice derivation of the powerful Adobe Photoshop software made simple and easy to use on the iPad. I like how you can bring up a pic from the Camera Roll, manipulate (hate that word) the photo and by simply Saving, plonk it back onto the Camera Roll for viewing and sharing.
    Here's the link to the Store

    https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/adobe-photoshop-express/id331975235?mt=8

    And blast my lack of social graces; A warm welcome to our forum Texas buddy:)

    Regards, Andrew

    Yes Gabriel1 also points to something I had overlooked and is definitely worth looking into. WiFi interface with photography is the coming thing now IMO with continually upgraded technology, which can only make our photography easier and enjoyable with use of the iPad.
    Another thing I have become interested in lately is the concept of the Eye-Fi card which is an SD card with WiFi incorporated in it. Here's a link for some more info on that.

    I would be interested in any comment/feedback if anyone has used either a portable WiFi drive or a WiFi SD card.
    Regards, Andrew
