    As we are waiting for connectors for importing images. Tried to drag and drop jpg files from Mac Book Pro. I get a message saying that image.jpg "cannot be played on iPad". What format is acceptable, or cannot iPad import this way?

    I went to my "pictures" folder on Mac Book Pro and dragged to iPad in iTunes.

    iPad icon does not appear on Mac Book Pro desktop, or in Finder, for importing directly outside iTunes.

    I'm not clear how you accomplish the last step in iTunes..."choose this folder as picture place". What do you mean by Picture Place? Or what specifically in iTunes do you go to to choose the folder on MacBook Pro?

    Dock your ipad to your computer, then click on the ipads photos page and click the button that says sync photos, then choose which pictures to sync. That's it. Dragging and dropping doesn't do a thing. It will convert your pictures when it syncs.

    IpadOne,

    Many thanks. Worked perfectly. Selected iPad in iTunes on MBP, then Photo tab, then selected folder to sync. After a full backup to MBP the photos loaded onto iPad.

    My pleasure to help you, i believe you don’t have an iPhone, i can recommend you to use iPhoto even i don’t like it too much, he can help you to create separate folder in the iPad based on you’re needing
