It seems to me they should. Most Syncs are 2 way. This sounds like 1 Way. I am going to check the Guide.

I checked all the ITunes options and in Photos there is just a choice on what folder to synch from. There has to be a two way synch option I am missing....

Your iPad will show up as a removable storage device in windows or whatever file explorer you use...the only thing that will be accessible is the photos.

Matthew is right. The iPad should appear as a camera to Windows and Windows should ask you if you want to import the photos. You may want to keep an eye on what you bring on to the computer and keep on the iPad. If you sync to the computer and don't delete them from the iPad and then use iTunes to sync back to the iPad, you can end up with two copies of your photos taking up space on your iPad.

Are you confused now?
