    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Hi and Welcome to iPad Forums.

    Try this:

    To sync photos from a Mac or Windows PC to your device using photo applications
    - Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed.
    - In iTunes, select your device's icon in the Devices list on the left.
    - Click the Photos tab.
    - Choose "Sync photos from."
    - On a Mac, choose iPhoto or Aperture from the pop-up menu.
    - On a Windows PC, choose Photoshop Album or Photoshop Elements from the
    pop-up menu.
    Note: Some versions of Photoshop Album and Photoshop Elements don't
    support collections. You can still use them to sync all your photos.

    5. If you want to sync all your photos, enable the option for "All photos, albums, events, and faces." If you want to sync photos from only some albums, events, or faces, enable the option for "Selected albums, events, and faces" and then select the albums you want. If syncing on a Mac with iPhoto version 6.0.6 or later, you may enable the option to "Include videos" to sync videos directly from iPhoto to your device. (Requires iOS 3.0 or later).
