There is on “photos” Tab under Devices.
Is any one have the answer ?

the photo tab is once you bring up your ipad to sinc. It lists all the various categories of things you are wanting to sync. (Click on the ipad and it brings up apps etc as tabs across the screen) then choose the photo one.

I have a question. I done that but I can’t edit(delete) pic unlike the pic that I took with iPad (camera roll). What have I done wrong?

How can I choose just one or two photos from a folder to sync to my iPad 2. I don’t want all pics from specific folder. Thanks for your help

well I did the first step but when I clicked on my device(in itunes) the “photos tab” thingy does not exist there…

this is stupid! It takes alot of time to freaking back up and sync the photos. \this is a very simple process that was made extremely complicated and dumb by apple. I have to wait over 15 minutes EACH time I want to send a photo to my ipad? even If it’s just 1 photo, the damn thing has to back up. It’s just stupid. Apple sucks

There is no picture tab which shows up on iTunes! Is there anyone live that I can talk to.

Qand je transfer un album du PC au IPad le. Le deuxieme fait disparate le premier albums ext ext

I am finding that iTunes is only allowing me to share pics from one folder only. I have photos in several folders that I simply want to copy to my ipad . I select Folder A and those pics go over. I then select Folder B and Folder A’s pics are removed and Folder B’s pics take their place.
