    I'm new and hopefully I can find help here. I have a new iPad 4 but my really old iPod is on my laptop. I hesitate to connect the ipad to my existing itunes. How to I bring photos in from my laptop (photoshop) to the ipad?
    Thanks!

    To sync photos from your laptop to iPad, first connect your iPad to your laptop using the USB syncing cable. Then open up iTunes on your laptop and select your iPad from the "Devices" section. A summary of your iPad should open up in the main window. Select the "Photos" button and then check the "Sync photos from..." box. Once you select the "Choose Photo" option in the drop-down menu, you can then select which picture album you want to transfer onto your iPad. Finally, click "Apply" and you will have your photos on your iPad.
    Regards, Andrew

    The Post from OB describes the process very well...........

    I guess I don't understand a few of your comments:
    What does your iPod have to do with your iPad?
    Why do you hesitate to connect iPad to existing iTunes?

    I guess I don't really want my thousands of songs on both.

    You can have total control over what is synced to each iDevice. It knows which device you have plugged in and syncs according to the settings you have made.

    Exactly.
    You can pick and choose playlists, songs, etc you wish to synch.

    I had the same concerns about itunes loading all of my songs but no worries you get to designate what is loaded to the ipad....so i loaded the best sons and pictures.

    Hi Andrew, I'm struggling with this.
    I have an ipad 3 and an up to date iTunes but I see no reference to photo when I plug in the iPad. Any ideas what steps I'm missing.

    Thanks Julian

    I'm puzzled why you don't see "Photos" after you click "Devices" (on your laptop or PC) and then select your iPad from that. There should be a "Photos" button up top when the iPad window is opened up on your PC or laptop.
