    The photos are in an app. Does the app talk to Dropbox?

    I am sorry but I don't get you.Please give me the simplest method possible.The photos in the iPad are photos originally taken by other devices and then loaded on the iPad.

    Where, exactly, are the photos stored? If they are stored on the iPad, then they must be stored in one of your apps. Knowing which app will help us help you get those photos to your computer.

    The easiest way to transfer photos from the Photos app on the iPad is to connect your iPad to your computer with the USB cord. On a Windows machine (as long as iTunes is installed on that PC), you should get an automatic Windows Explorer popup. Elect to "open device to view files" and keep clicking on the folders that appear (one will be the "DCIM" folder) until you reach your pictures.

    Right click and copy the photos you want and then paste them somewhere on your computer. I do not recommend moving them or cutting/pasting them from the iPad - it might interfere with the iPad's photo organizing capabilities.... Once you've copied the pictures you want, you can disconnect the iPad.

    Hope this helps.

    From the Photos app, you can use a myriad of ways to transfer off the iPad. For some reason, many people have an inversion to iTunes, so other options include using a third party photo transfer app like Photo Transfer App (my favorite), or via cloud storage like Dropbox, etc.

    Once again, we need app names to clarify how we can help you. Do you have iTunes install on your computer? You designate in iTunes which photo sets are synced to iPhoto.

    Your second question is answerable if you have some cloud service, like Dropbox installed on your ad.

    Transfer apps go both ways onto the iPad and off the iPad. The app I suggested you can select from all albums, not just the camera roll.

    Open the PDF in Safari, up the top you will see the Open In... Dialog. If you have an app like Goodreader, you can open it there and save it to the app for later use. It automatically saves under My Documents in Goodreader without any action other than the Open In... Goodreader from Safari.
