    Hey all,

    Newbie here, just got my hands on the iPad 2 and I have been playing around with it
    My question is, how do I pick which photo to use as my album cover on photos
    I thought itunes probably use the first photo when I sync it, but then I renamed all the photos in the folder from DSCxxx to 001, 002 and name the photo I want to use as cover to be 001, but it still doesn't work, anyone has some insight on how to do this
    Thanks in advance

    PS I am using a pc, so I do not have iphotos

    The Camera Roll folder picture is always the newest one. I suspect that the date is also for the other folders the primary factor in determining which picture gets chosen. However, my guess is that the oldest picture is displayed.

    Yea, and so I am guessing there is no way to alter the date of when the photo is taken

    No, it is really simple to edit the date.

    Select the picture you want on top
    -right click
    -select Properties
    -chose the Details tab
    -under Origin adjust the date
    -press ok
    -sync the photo
