    Hello!

    I'm sure this is covered somewhere in all of the threads within these forums, but I did not find anything after conducting a quick search......anyway, I would like to take the pictures that I have in files (Christmas 2011, Baby's 1st bd, January 2012 vacation, etc.) and transfer them (keeping all original pics in their original files) from my pc to my iPad 2. I found this to be impossible when I purchased the iPad earlier this year. I ended up with all of the files and pictures, but the pictures were haphazardly strewn about within the folders, i.e. baby pics in Christmas folder with some of the Christmas pics, vacation pics in with some of the baby pics folder, etc. Is there an app, process or trick that would allow me to successfully conquer such a simple task? I used iTunes when I uploaded the pics from my pc to my iPad.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Thanks!

    I use Photo Manager Pro for this purpose. It´s not a free program, but I like it because it does what I want, placing my pictures in folders

    Would it not be easier to make new folders on the PC and place copies of the appropriate pics in the respective folder. Then, connect the iPad go to iTunes and sync these new folders to the iPad. That's what I do and it works just fine.

    I use Dropbox and they transferred without a hitch. I like the folder response. Think I'll try that.

    Make sure these folders are sub-folders of My Pictures and that each folder is selected in iTunes under the Photo tab whilst the device is connected. You cannot have sub-folders of the sub-folders.

    Hi all,

    On a similar theme, I have transferred many photos from PC to my Ipad, but noticed that the uploaded files are smaller. Most of my photos were approx 5mb on PC, but saved as approx 1mb on the Ipad. Is there a way of preventing this (ie saving photo files on Ipad in their full size?)

    Many thanks in Advance
