    Have a New iPad and getting the camera kits with connectors do we can load photos from camera and computer on to iPad.
    Any suggestions on best way? Do I need app for that? I have high resolution DSLR and don't want to put on iPad in the 20MB or larger size. But want them to be very crisp. Any suggestions on how to transfer and reduce size?

    You don't need an app to get the pics onto your iPad with the camera connection kit. Once you plug the device in and either your SD card or camera is connected after a few secs the iPad will automatically open photos and display all your pics on the camera/SD card.

    As far as an app that will reduce the size of the photo I think you can use photogene for that. Now 100% sure because I haven't used that app in a while, but I think it will change the size of the pic.

    Hi

    I'm new to iPad as well.

    One thing that I was happy to find was that I can just plug my iPad into my computer's USB Port and look at it in Windows Explorer. The first time you will get the loading software message.

    It shows up there as a Hard Drive just like a camera would and you can copy and paste image and video files back and forth with no problems, so you can re-size them rotate them or whatever in Windows before you transfer them, if you want to.

    You can also transfer the images from the iPad to your computer, run them through Photoshop, or your video through a video editor and then move then back to the iPad.

    That's most of what I've figured out to far but it's a big help for what I want to do with it.

    I'm looking forward to shooting video that I will then transfer to my computer and edit in Adobe Premiere, add sound and narration and them save online.

    Then I can link to them on the iPad and play them on it without storing the files there. They are too big to store a lot of them on the pad!

    I've done a few tests and it works great, the video from the iPad is very good.

    I'm researching tripod mounts and auxiliary lenses now.

    Mike

    The JPEG card on my DSLR has very high resolution JPEG images.
    DSLR has 2 cards. I shoot everything in RAW. Using SD card for JPEGs and expect only use of JPEGS will be to put on iPad.

    Question is which MB size should I go for to use on iPad. Don't want to take up anymore space than needed but want enough resolution so if I want to send to print I will get very sharp print.

    I've found that 1024x768 works fine for me and doesn't take up much space.

    Test this yourself. What does it take to get the very sharp print that you like?

    Hi

    In theory the same image size as the display will give you the best results.

    2048×1536 but you probably won't see the difference unless you start zooming in on the images.

    This will give you an image of about 9 megabytes each when open, and 1.36 megabytes when compressed as a jpg.
    Or 100 images will take 136 megabytes, not too bad really.

    This has the advantage of not degrading the image quality should you want to use if for something else or crop it later.

    Mike

    Mike, question for you. I am really struggling with how to add photos to iPad. Example in my DSLR I shoot on CF card in Raw and then on SD in JPEG.

    Point was to try and get JPEG's proper size to put on iPad. Well I load a few from SD card and when opened in iPhoto they ranged from 4.5 to just over 6 MB. Tried a 6MB image from card to iPad. But if I email from iPad to iPhone and save it is something like 1.8 MB. and then saved to iPad from photo stream. Compared image quality of the 6MB vs the 1.8MB on iPad and they look same.

    What is best way to save them on iPad and take up a little space as possible?

    Also you made this statement "This will give you an image of about 9 megabytes each when open, and 1.36 megabytes when compressed as a jpg". Can you explain what you mean here? How much space is it taking up on your iPad 9 or 1.36MB? and how are you putting images on iPad. I have the camera kit and use that to take from SD card.

    I only have 213 photos and 74 apps and have 22.3GB available of total of 28GB.

    I do photo editing in Lightroom on PC do could do that. What size do you suggest to max resolution on iPad but still save space.

    If you use Lightroom then you can convert your images to jpeg (or change size). There is an option to export or convert, and you will have some choices such as format,size, folder etc. Simply choose 2048 for the longest edge. This will give you reasonable size jpegs that maximise the iPads resolution. I do this and it's perfect and creates images smaller than 2mb generally. You can also use the slider to vary the compression - again I use the maximum (12 from memory) although 9 or 10 is virtually indistinguishable.

    If you want to zoom in to your pictures on the iPad and still retain full quality on the zoom then you might want to convert your pictures with a larger long edge. I don't bother.

    Based on your quantity of images you will have little storage problems with this solution.
