    Hi Soozie - welcome to the forum! :)

    Seems like no one has addressed your question yet but you may need to clarify your needs? First, which way do you want to go, i.e. transferring images from your computer to your iPad vs. the other way - there are major differences and considerations?

    There are potentially many options of getting images on & off the iPad, so please provide some more specific information as to exactly what you want to do - will be quite helpful and good luck!

    Hi,
    What I want to do is transfer pictures from my iPad 2 to my laptop computer. The simplest and easiest way possible.
    Thanks, Soozie.

    What kind of computer do you have? What are you using to view and store photos on your computer?

    My computer is an HP and I am on windows vista. I am not sure what I use for my pictures. I just click on ' pictures ' and put them
    there. Hope this is helpful.

    Hi Soozie again - so you want to transfer your images on the iPad to your HP computer running Windows VISTA - correct?

    Sorry about asking more questions, but do have iOS5 on your iPad (the native photo option has been improved), do you have other apps on your iPad that deal w/ images, and finally how were your images on your iPad obtained (i.e. via the iPad camera in the 'Camera Roll', downloaded, emailed, etc.)?

    I know that these questions are annoying but are important regarding what images can be sent from your iPad to your computer - but in the meantime, consider the iCloud (or other, e.g. Dropbox) options - much can be sent to the 'cloud' and then picked up on your computer. Let us know some more details please - :)

    do have iOS5 on your iPad? I'm sorry, but I don't know what that is.

    how were your images on your iPad obtained ? The pictures were taken with the iPad camera.

    I know I'm not being very helpful......but there is so much about this that I don't understand. Such as the Icloud. I don't know what that is or if I have it.
    :(

    Hi again Soozie - well, if you are using the iPad's rear camera (keep in mind that this is only a .7MP camera so rather poor resolution for still images), your images are stored in the 'Camera Roll' of the device's 'native' photo app - the newest version of the app comes w/ iOS5 which is the most recently released 'mobile' operating system for the iPad (also iPod & iPhone) - to check your version, open 'Settings' on the iPad then 'General -> About'; the version of your iOS will be listed there.

    Unfortunately, the 'native' Camera Roll does not allow for much 'exporting' of your images, e.g. does not sync back to your computer - your main option w/ that app is to email single or multiple images to yourself and then save them to your computer via the emails - rather cumbersome, especially if you have a LOT of photos - but will work! To use, select the small icon in the right upper corner of the 'Photo App' (the one w/ the arrow emerging to the right); this will bring up a drop-down menu w/ the options given.

    A much better way to get your 'Camera Roll' images to your computer is to use a third party app - I have PhotoSync (a $2 program from the Apple App store); if interested be sure to purchase the iPad version; you will then have to go to their website and via a free download, put a small program on your computer - more information HERE; the latter will create a sub-folder in your Windows VISTA 'Pictures' folder named PhotoSync.

    Now if you do buy PhotoSync and also install the computer program, then you just need the iPad & your computer on the same Wi-Fi network; open the app on the iPad and go to your 'Camera Roll' - select one or multiple images from there and then press the little red sync button in the right upper corner; a drop down menu appears, just pick what you want to do (e.g. Sync Selected images) - this will bring up a little dialog box as to 'where' to transfer the chosen pics - just press 'Computer', select your computer, and in a short time the images will have been transferred to your computer - press the 'Camera Roll' that appears on the bottom taskbar and your PhotoSync sub-folder will open up w/ the images!

    This took me much longer to type out than to do - just seconds once you get the hang of it!; Below is a 'screen capture' I did from a transfer showing photos that were in my iPad's 'Camera Roll' (recent trip to Nantucket) and are now on my VISTA laptop - click to enlarge and look in the left hand listing to see 'where' these images are stored.

    Hope that this may help - there are certainly other possibilities but this is an easy solution - good luck and please post back if you have further questions? :)

    Thanks so much for your reply. I went to Photosync and got the app. and then I downloaded it onto the computer. It says it is installed.....I see it on the iPad and computer. I tried to download some pictures onto the computer and it says no computer is found. I am on wifi in my home. It is still searching...............Again thanks, I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. ( probably something simple...but....;)............Susan

    Hi Susan (my wife's name also) - so I assume that you have the $2 app on your iPad along w/ the 'free' app from their website on your computer - make sure that the PhotoSync icon is in your 'System Tray' - see the attached screen capture of my laptop - the needed icon is the 2nd from the left; if you double-click a dialog box will appear (I have it opened to the second page - make sure the icon in the tray is checked); I just did another transfer from my iPad and in the taskbar you see 'Camera Roll' (in blue) which is the Photo-Sync subfolder on the computer's hard drive - clicking on it will open to that folder and show the photos downloaded.

    Again you need to be on the same Wi-Fi network (which you seem to be from your post) - but try again, i.e. open the app on the iPad, go to the camera roll there, select several images, and go through the dialog boxes w/ the final selection being your computer - keep in touch here & good luck! Dave :)

    Dave.....Thanks so much. I waited awhile and then tried it and it works. YEAH! :D You don't know how happy I get when things come together on all this tech stuff for me. I even tried a video and it worked.....only it came in upside down. Haven't figured that one out yet. But I'm sure it's another easy fix.

    Thanks again for your patience and helping me through this..............Susan

    Hi again Susan - well it has been a few weeks and I assumed that you were transferring 'oodles' of pics by now!

    When you state that 'when I click on it nothing happens', do you mean when you try to start the app from the iPad? My first suggestion is to 'force close' Photosync on your device, i.e. double tap the home button, the multitasking bar should open at the bottom of the iPad - press & hold the Photosync icon until it jiggles - then press the round red minus sign in the upper left corner which will close the app; return to your home screen and try to then re-open it; if that works, also review the previous posts and make sure that on your computer the icon is still present in the system tray.

    If that does not work, I would suggest that you 'Restart' and if not successful 'Reset' your iPad - directions HERE - if none of these maneuvers is successful, then please post back to this thread - good luck! Dave :)

    Hi! Super,
    I wanted to save this as a favorite. And since I have been sick there have been no time to learn the forum. But how can I tell if there is a reply to a message. I go to the message and I looked and there is nothing that I can tell if it is new or not. I end up my pressing the one I think.

    I have mess-up on posting on some these more than one time but I have learn that only tab the submit button once and then just back out. I'm I think I got one person really upset but I go back and say that I was sorry.

    Thank you,
    Tom

    Hi Tom. The default setting for the forum is to email a link to any threads that you've either subscribed to or posted in (posting in a thread gives you an automatic subscription to that thread). The same goes for any threads you start or anytime you receive a private message (PM) or a reply to a PM you sent.

    To check to see if there are any new posts to any threads you've subscribed to any time on the website, just click on the "Settings" link at the top of any page and then on "Subscriptions" in the sidebar. If you're using the iPF App just click on "Subscriptions" in the bottom toolbar.

    Hope that helps and enjoy!
