    I have 3 photos that are visible when I use the Photo app on the iPad. I start PS Express on the iPad and click Edit. It says no photos and that I can sync photos onto the iPad using ITunes. However, I have already done a sync of the photos using iTunes (which is why I can see them when using the Photo app)? I keep my photos on the PC in the D:\iPad Photo Share folder created just for that purpose. What do I need to do to fix this?

    Thanks

    OK - it's probably not going to help, so please forgive me, but it's an easy first step before getting down to some serious stuff...


    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Thank you very much. Closing PS Express did the job. Up the learning curve I slowly move...

    I normally do the power down every night before charging. Hopefully that will not cause any problems.

    BTW, I am using the iPad Forum app to read & write. However, the normal 2 finger expand does not seem to work. Is that possible to do?

    Thanks

    Powering down each night will not cause any problems at all - it's probably 'best practice' in fact, but most of us (well, me) are too lazy.

    I haven't used the iPad Forum app yet :(- still using Safari, but it's true that some apps don't support certain iPad gestures, so it's certainly a possibility. I'm sure that other Forum members will comment on this.

    The only place I can think of where you can expand or shrink the screen is when you follow a link to a web site. The build in web browser will do it. I don't know where else it would be useful.

    I suppose it would be nice if there was a place to set the font size. The are a bit small if your not going to hold it close.
