    Default How to transfer my photos from iPad to computer

    Over the summer I started downloading photographs directly to our iPad. In the past I had first loaded them onto our laptop and then transferred them to the iPad. Now, I am wondering if I can take what I first put on the iPad and move them to the laptop. Does anyone regularly do this? Or, do you know if it can be done?
    Thanks.

    What sort of computer do you have? Mac or PC?
    You can use iPhoto if you have a mac, just plug the iPad in and iPhoto should open up. If not, open iPhoto and your iPad should be displayed as a device on the side. Click it, choose the photos you'd like to import, click import. Done!

    Another wireless solution is PhotoSync from the App store.

    Default move video from iPhone to iPad?

    I have a better question, how would you move a video shot from your iPhone to your iPad without the use of a laptop or desktop computer?

    Photosync is a really useful app - well worth the $1.99 price.
    It can push photos between your iOS devices - iPhone to another iPhone to iPad, as well as to and from your Mac or Windows computer.
    App Store - PhotoSync - wirelessly transfers your photos and videos
    Home - www.photosync-app.com

    I guess photo stream should be able to do this - but I've been very disappointed with the iCloud experience up to now, and Photosync allows much easier control of what photos are sent between devices.

    Thanks for the link. I have disabled photostream on my iDevices, and my laptop. Havent been at the desktop for a few days but I'm going to disable it there, too. No doubt it will improve in time but right now, out of the box, its a menace.

    Default How to transfer photo from iPad to computer

    If you jsut want to copy your photo's of your iPad, do what I do with my iPhone 4. Plug it into the computer, Widnows will detect it as a camera device, look in My Computer and you will see your iPad as a camera, open it and browse the folder and copy your images out. You cannot copy them onto your iPad, only off. OR you can use CopyTrans, it allows you to manage photo's, vid's, music, etc, etc without itunes.
    What's more, you can refer these articles about transferring iPad photo to computer:
    For PC: How to transfer photo/pictures from iPad to Windows
    For Mac: How to transfer or backup photo from iPad to Mac OS
    Hope that can help you a lot.

    Yeah but you might not want to plug your iPad in all the time.

    Im going to give photosync a go, for two bucks it's worth a try!
