    New here, looking for photo info, and i came across someone saying to hit 'sunflower icon' by the slide bar to start a slide show. So I tried it, and a 'show' started. I just don't know how THOSE photos got onto my IPad? Hubby got IPad 2 last yr, me IPAD 3 this yr . The photos we're taken a yr ago and loaded on a computer, NOT our IPads.
    How are they and where are they on my IPad? Not in any album on my IPad??!!
    Thanks, Nancy

    Maybe when you first synced your iPad to your computer that file was checked under pics to be synced to our iPad? Have you done this before? ....or could it be that you have your photostream turned on?

    Did I mention I don't speak techno...
    Where would I find 'photo stream' ?
    On computer, I open ITunes, then where do I look to see what files are checked to sync? I have thousands of photos but don't want/need them (ok a few) on the IPad.
    Then, where are they on IPad to view and see what else is on IPad?
    Thank you, Nancy
