    I just got an iPad for my grandfather (who doesn't own a mac). I just wanted to know how it works for uploading photos onto the iPad as there isn't that easy album-iPhoto-way of doing it.

    Thanks! :)

    You can use iTunes to upload your photos to iPad! Just go to the photos section of iTunes and point to your photo library, or just specify individual folders to sync with your idevice. So every time you sync your iPad your photo collection will be synced!

    Also, and I have never tried it, when you connect an iPad to a PC, it should open up like a hard drive.
    It always asks me if I want to view the pictures on it.
    I have pulled pictures from the iPad, I'm sure it works the other way.

    I use that photo app in the app store to transfer to the iPad. There's no need for iTunes and such. It costs a few dollars but it's worth it. It's so easy to use.
