    I am thinking of buying an ipad mini as I am going away on a big trip and will be taking many pictures. I am simply trying to find out if it is possible on the ipad mini to sort your photos out in various folders and rename the photos so when I get them home to export them to various programs for slide shows with music etc they retain the name I give them. I have looked all over the web for answers but funnily enough I have not been able to find any answers. Put simply can I rename photos on the ipad mini (or get apps that do) for later export. Many thanks PeterSSCS

    Hi Peter welcome to the forum! :) You may need to supply some additional information, e.g. are you going to take pictures w/ a digital camera and import them into the iPad Mini and/or take them w/ the camera on the iPad? Important in that w/ a digital camera you will have a storage option (e.g. SD card) that can be used w/ a regular computer if necessary.

    The native Photo App on the iPad will not permit your goal of 'naming' individual images for future use and folder storage - now there are a number of third party apps that offer some of these options - not sure if that is your preference? My advice is that if you are planning to take dozens (if not hundreds) of digital images is that you have a dedicated digital camera w/ a storage device - NOW, I'm not sure exactly what your goals may be so please explain - Dave

    Thanks Giradman - I will be taking 00s of pictures with my dig SLR. My thoughts were to use SD card to Ipad mini for sorting/deleting/renaming pics on bigger ipad mini screen. Weight is going to be a problem for me so am trying to minimise taking too much gear. I thought dig SLR & iPad mini could be a good solution. Use my down time to sort/delete/rename photos into folders/themes so when I return home the pics can easily be sorted to slide shows w/ music etc. My wife has an ipad and I realise native photo app doesnt do what I want so a necessity to get other app(s) to do this function. I have small ebook PC which will do all this but would prefer Ipad mini if possible due to its size/weight etc. I hope that clarifies my needs further Giradman. Cheers Peter

    Hi again Peter - I have nearly a dozen different photo apps on my iPad (some for editing & others for organization); unfortunately, I've not used many thoroughly enough to offer experienced advice, but one called Photo-Sort (INFO HERE) might be of interest - folders and sub-folders can be created & images imported (w/ some basic editing) - the folders and the pics can be re-named; plus, the images seem to be stored (rather than just linked to the native Photo App) w/i Photo-Sort; an FTP transfer option is available (which I've not tried) - some negative reviews in iTunes, but seem to be rather trivial relative to my use of the app. Others certainly exist but this one might be worth a try? Good luck - Dave :)

    Hi Dave, -many thanks for the reply again. I will look into what you have said. Certainly, on 1st look, Photo-Sort looks like it does some of the things I want. Cheers peter

    Hi Dave, the app does what I want but unfortunately it is not as easy as I hoped it would be, i.e. sorting photos by just drag and drop. But it works by giving new numbers to the photos in an album. Vin

    Hi Vin - unfortunately, none of these iPad photo apps have ALL of the features desired and some of the steps taken are not always intuitive; BUT, I just did the following in Photo-Sort (see if these steps might help you w/ the app?): 1) Opened Photo-Sort and imported (from native Photo app) about a half dozen pics of my renovated porch; 2) Renamed the pics (easy to do by just pressing the right side of the imported nondescript title); 3) Made a new folder which I named Porch; 4) Pressed the tool icon (wrench on the bottom left) and pressed each image I wanted to transfer to the new folder; and 4) Selected 'Cut' & opened the new folder and pressed & then pasted; using 'Cut' deletes the images in their other location; if you use 'Copy' then the images are duplicated in both areas.

    Give it a try - does allow 'batch' movement (batch naming would be nice) - also, on the 'Albums' page, noticed the 'I' circle in the left upper corner - pressing brings you to a help page explaining the features of the app - let us know if this improves your working w/ Photo-Sort? Good luck - Dave :)
