    When you sync, you are selecting what you want to have placed on the iPad. If you keep syncing the same folder, you will be updating the contents of the folder (that's the point of syncing - to make the folder the same in both places).

    Here's what you can do: Create a new folder each time, and sync the old folder(s) and the new folder in your sync settings.

    Maybe it's just a problem of translation? If you are using the Apple support web site in your native language, the links below should open these support articles in that language.

    Do you want to:
    a) Put images onto the iPad (sync): https://support.apple.com/HT201313, or
    b) Take images from the iPad (transfer) https://support.apple.com/HT201302 ?

    Those support articles are very clear, and are illustrated, and will probably be easier to understand than my English.

    I believe your problem is that you are removing images from the sync folder on your computer, but wish them to stay on your iPad. Does that sound right?
