    Before updating to the latest operating system, I transferred my photos to dropbox so as to not loose them. How do I get them back to the iPad so that I can use them in apps that require the photos to be in the camera roll? (such as iMovie and Book Creator)

    Open the Dropbox app (on your iPad) and navigate to where the photo is stored. When it shows in the right hand side, there should be an arrow in the upper right hand side. Pressing the arrow will give you options - one of which is to "save to Camera Roll" (or maybe it'll say to save to Photo album ... can't remember). You choose the option and the picture is then saved to the iPad.

    Hope this helps.
