does anyone know of a good app for making photo albums?
For print, or just on the iPad?
No app required.
First, you should remove the pictures currently in the Camera Roll (Photos), so you won't be duplicating everything. You can do this by un-checking "Sync Photos from..." and syncing, this will delete all of the photos on the iPad.
You need to setup a folder, on your PC under "My Pictures", such as "iPad Pictures" and make all of the folders you want, with the pictures you want in them (copy, move or drag and drop, your choice), under that folder. Then go into iTunes, under PHOTOS and select "Sync Photos from" and change "My Pictures" to "Choose Folder" and then choose the folder you created "iPad Pictures" open it and select the folders you want to sync to the iPad. Then sync them.
If your jailbroken, try "PhotoAlbums+" from Cydia. Start with the above if you have a lot of pictures, as it's easier to do it on the PC than on the iPad screen. Then you can use PhotoAlbums+ as you add pictures.
I like Collections quite a lot andits integrated with Dropbox. Another that works pretty well is Photo Sort but I prerfer Collections. I choose the plain page and add a single photo per page but they have a number of formats. Easy to use nice to view.
I like Photo Manager Pro. It lets you create folders inside the app (and you can create sub-folders all day long). Plus, you can sort your folders, view captions (and sort by captions) and transfer your photos easily (and in bulk) from your computer. It also has slidesho and allows you to send/get from the standard Photo app.
Very handy program, but, as always - YMMV.
Thanks Marilyn. I got the app this morning and it works nicely. Wish some app would allow you to sort by moving the photo file manually, i.e., selecting and "pushing" it into place. I do this all the time in my Adobe Lightroom program on my main computer but realize there may be some kind of restraints on the Ipad. You can do this with text files in some apps so hopeful one of these photo sorting apps will be able to implement it. I have this one and Photo Sort (plus Collections which is really sort of a different animal) and should decide between the two sorting apps.
One of my main reasons for buying my iP2 was for making albums (only I call 'em "portfolios"). There are two chunks to the equation: transferring and managing the images, and then presenting them. I am still working on the various ways of moving the pictures around, but have pretty much decided on KEYNOTE for the presentation of them.
Best, I have found, is to make the portfolio on the desktop or laptop and then send it over to the iPad where it can be shown (or even projected) from the iPad KEYNOTE app. This is not nearly as cumbersome as it sounds— you just need to have a Mac as your "big boy." Works for me. (Lacking a Mac you could just make the KEYNOTE file on the iPad. I just find it easier and faster to work on the Mac and then transfer the product.)
Hey.check out "Photo folder".Some of its features are:
#Creation of folders and subfolders for easy drag ‘n’ drop photo organization
#Filter photos based on keywords contained within an image’s metadata, by rating or by a favorite
#Create and assign new keywords to a photos metadata
#GPS data displays where an image was taken on Google Maps
#Arrange the order of photos using a manual, name, date, size or rating
#Play a slideshow and share photos on various social media sites.

You should remove the pictures currently in the Camera Roll.
What about an app that makes albums you can print out? All of the basic online photo books require flash (shutterfly, snapfish, lulu, etc) and the apps for these sights are worthless. I was wanting to create some photo books to give as Christmas presents but I can't find app that has this capability. My pc is a piece of crap and it don't want to use it if at all possible. Please help!
