    No, actually that link was very confusing. I just called the guys at apple, they are so nice!

    Bascially, he said to create ONE folder on my computer, with lots of other folders IN that one, then send it to the ipad.

    I gots it now, Matt!:D

    Thank you so much for always poppin in to my threads, Sir!

    Touche', My Dear. But MATT...See how I said it up there^^?

    Ya gots to keep it simple for the blondes in Cali.:D Oh, and it DID work!

    Okay ~ now, anytime I want to add more pictures, I just put them into that big folder called IPad, then select the sub folder I want.

    Does this girl have it or what?;)

    I do have it right?

    Hi Poison.
    Matt's method should be relatively problem free.....However, please note that when you do that, it does not sync your Faces and Places.

    It just creates the events and albums. If you don't need the Faces and Places, it should be OK.



    Hi Matt,
    I actually did the same thing in the past by creating an iPad folder and adding sub-folders with photos in it.
    Are you able to sync Faces and Places with this method? Basically, I can't find this option when I sync my photos via a folder and not from iPhoto.....:(

    Hey Foto!

    Thanks for your input. But I am not sure what Faces & Places is?:confused: It sure sounds familiar though!

    I have to admit, I don't know what faces and places are either, unless you mean like geotags?

    SweetPoison, all programs that Sync behave the same way. They look at the "home" folder and make the "away" folder look the same. So if you take your "old" photos out of "home" and put "new" ones in, Sync takes the "old" photos out of "away" and "new" photos in. It also will take missing photos "old" from the "away" device and delete them from the "home" device. Hence the multiple folders to hold different groups, some "old" and some "new." Never mix the two and then delete one set.
    Got it?

    I think I got it, Mel! I think I do ~

    IMO I think that is really a dumb way to do it. But, then again, who am I?:p

    Hi Matt

    Yup, you're right!

    "Places" are actually geotagging while "Faces" are essentially photos of your favorite friends or family members in the iPhoto library and it is sorted using facial recognition. So, these features are only available for Mac OS users.

    The Places and Faces are visible in the top bar...

    [​IMG]


    As far as I know, the Faces and Places can't be imported into the iPad via syncing the folders. That's why I had to resort to syncing via the iPhoto library. However, the problem is that it doesn't sync what I've selected!!!

    It will skip one or two folders during the initial sync, but will sync these folders the next time round.....really frustrating!

    Did anyone encounter the same problems when they sync their photos using the iPhoto library?
