Transferring pictures on an iPad and any iOS device

Well, it is funny how user friendly the iPad is, and yet how puzzling it can be to do simple tasks. One such task is to transfer pictures onto an iPad. One would think it quite simple, perhaps drag and drop, bluetooth, through iPhoto; but alas these are not the way to do it.

Amazingly I had to look this up on the internet and found quite a few blogs, this one being helpful. Basically you need to sync either a folder or album to the iPad, which is controlled through iTunes.
  1. Load up iTunes and plug in iPad (or iOS device)
  2. Click on the device on the left hand side of iTunes
  3. Click on the Pictures tab
  4. Tick the sync box and select "folder" or whatever is relevant to you
Simple but not the way I would have done it.
