    Why not put them in the "Photos" section? I have a special folder on my desktop called "iPad Photo Gallery" and I have put the images I want into that folder and then in iTunes sync to that folder and voila -- the images appeared in my iPad. I then chose a couple of them to use as my wallpaper.

    I think the wallpaper folder is not user-writeable. If you want to change the wallpaper to something other than the defaults, you have to browse through all the photos you have on the iPad. I never bothered to sync my iPad with iPhoto (I have photo sync turned off). You might be able to create an event in iPhoto called "my wallpaper" and sync it to the iPad and have all your wallpaper show up there. I just prefer to get my photos onto my iPad by some means other than usb so I have never tried this.

    Yes this is the word I needed. :D Wish Apple would let you copy to it just for neatness and convenience sake.

    So what, you have something against iTunes? I do exactly what the previous poster mentioned. I have an iPad wallpaper folder. When I get a new wallpaper image I dump in that folder. Whenever I sync with iTunes that folder gets moved to the iPad. I don't have to search through thousands of files to change the wallpaper on the iPad. I just open the Photos app and then select my Wallpapers folder. It opens and I pic the image I want. What's so hard about that?

    Are you ranting at me.:confused: Cool down it's not Armageddon. :eek: It would just be nice to have all Wallpaper related pics in the Wallpaper folder (with Apple's) on the iPad. Just a connivance issue and not a big panty wadder.:D

    Sorry Julien, I did not mean to jump down your throat. I just did not understand your issue with the way it works. To each their own.
    Enjoy your iPad.... If you can. ;)

    Sync pic will create cache on your hard drive which lessen your space to store other file. I dont like it :)
