iCloud Photo Stream?
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?
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.
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.

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.

Use photosync. Awesome app!
Another one for Photosync.
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!

Connect the iPad to a computer via the USB cord.
Windows will recognize the iPad as a hard drive and AutoPlay may prompt you with Device Options. Choose “Open device to view files,” if so. Otherwise, find the iPad in Windows Explorer.
Open the disk, then navigate to DCIM > 100APPLE.
Here you’ll find all images from the Saved Photos folder.
