    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.
