    Guys/Gals,

    Is there a way to transfer/move photos between albums on the iPad 2?

    It's such a pain to get the photos from my Blackberry Bold onto my iPad 2...have to hook up my phone to my old and unreliable laptop to copy them over....then have to sync my iPad 2 to iTunes on my laptop. Sounds simple but the whole process usually takes about 20min at least since my phone is old and so is my laptop and one usually misses a beat.

    Anyway, I know that I can just email photos to myself on my iPad 2 and save them to my album from there, but when I select 'save', the photo automatically is saved to a 'camera roll' album. I'd like to be able to move these to specific albums I have on my iPad 2, but I can't see a way to do this.

    Am I missing something here?

    Thanks!

    No, you're not missing anything. This is something that will be fixed in iOS 5 as you can create albums right on the iPad.

    Although I can't confirm if it will let you move it to another album. I honestly don't see why they wouldn't.

    Hopefully someone running the iOS 5 beta can come in here and help you out.

    looks like there is the option to add a photo from one album to a new album. Can't see a simple "move to". But is still only beta so may be in the pipeline.
