    There are many ways....

    (1) You can organise them into folders on your PC and then sync the PC and the iPad. The folders and their contents will be transferred to the iPad's native Photo app

    (2) If you have the optional Camera Connection Kit, you can copy photos and videos from an SD memory card, or directly from your camera, to the iPad - again they end up in the Photo app.

    (3) If you have just a few photos that you want to send, it's probably easiest to email them to yourself. When you receive them on the iPad's native Mail app, if you touch and hold the resulting image you'll be offered a 'Save' option, which enables you to save the attachment into the Photo app.

    (4) You can use a third-party app, such as GoodReader...

    Here are some details...

    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac.
