I know about the Camera apps that let you take a picture on the iphone via the ipad. That's not what i'm looking for. But if they let you do what I'm trying to do, then great.

What I'm looking for is a way to wirelessly transfer a photo from the iphone gallery to the ipad gallery. (A cool app would let you "flick" a photo from the iphone on to the ipad and save to gallery. Even better, it would let you do it to anyone else's ipad)

Or is the only way to do this is to send to an online service like mobileme or dropbox?

The easiest would be e-mail

Yes, but that downsizes the resolution.
Not if you copy and paste. Instead of pressing the e-mail photo button, copy and then paste it into the mail app. Full resolution.

EDIT: if I wasn't clear, to copy a photo, open it, press and hold until the copy button appears.

instead of emailing photo via "share", copy the photo (hold your finger on pic) and copy, then paste it to the email body. this way you can send full resolution photo.

This is very interesting! I am trying it out now! Thanks for the tip!

I didn't know that, thanks! Any limit to number of photos you can do this with in one email?

Apple implemented a truly magical and revolutionary system for this. First, go to your computer. You may have to wait until you are at a homme for this step. Proceed to boot it. To add you photos, you have to sync your ozone with iTunes. Once that is done, unplug it and plug in your iPad. It's just so simple. Truly magical.

been using this methods for a while. I just tried sending 5 pics at once, all taken with iPhone 3GS camera. First 4 pics were seen in mail body inline (actual picture shown) and 5th was only icon. That's probably to preserve resources?

All 5 were sent fine at native resolution.

You can just e-mail it. Did you even bother reading the thread or do you just like to troll?

Actually camera for iPad is really nice. It connects to your iPhone over Bluetooth and it shows on your iPad the camera screen then yup hit take shot on your iPad and it takes a photo fro your iPhone and save it directly on your iPad

Is this an app that you are referring to?

Don't even act like apple shouldn't have at least added a USB port for just this kind of thing. I thought he said emailing ruins the quality, I don't read every post cause they all say the same thing more or less.

I know, but that's not what I was looking for. I wanted to be able to drag photos from the iphone gallery to the ipad gallery wirelessly. I'm sure someone will make an app to do that.

Photo transfer app

Hello,
I'm the developer of an iPhone app that let's you transfer photos from your iPhone to your iPad over wifi. You can select up to 50 pictures from your iPhone and transfer them in full resolution to your iPad. We have several people already doing this (see app reviews).

Also, you only need to buy the app once to run it on both devices. Currently the app works in emulation mode on iPad but we are finishing the native iPad app and will be released next week.

Here is the link to the app on iTunes:

http://itunes.apple.com/app/photo-transfer-app/id365152940?mt=8

And our website:
http://www.phototransferapp.com

I hope the app it's useful to you.

Cheers.

Photo Transfer App

Will the ipad app be free to those who have the iphone app?
Yes. The app will be free to those who have the iPhone app. We will be updating the app as an universal app so the update will come at no cost to you.

Regards.

The very next post after the 'email ruins the quality post' showed how you can get around that.

Your desire to troll shouldn't stop you from reading a couple of posts on the thread.

Doesn't seem to work on my iPad 3G when connected via WiFi. I've been able to use the program successfully on my iPhone on the same setup, but Firefox nor Safari cannot resolve the server address on my PC to reach the iPad. Strange...

Got a confirmation email from the developer that this solution does NOT WORK with the iPad after all. Apparently there are differences between the operating systems of the iPad and iPhone, he said, and they have submitted an update to Apple which should fix the problem.

Other solutions besides email?

Not completely wireless, but I've been doing this by connecting my iPhone to my computer, opening it up in Windows Explorer to find the right pictures, and then wirelessly sending them to GoodReader via the web / network location interfaces.
