I recently came back from a trip where I had a digital camera and my iPad. Every day I imported photos from my camera to my iPad. I had an album where the photos were organized with tags. In my attempts to move these pictures from iPhoto on my iPad to iPhoto on my Mac, I started by connecting my iPad directly to my Mac. iPhoto on my Mac popped open and I thought "great" as it offered to import all my pictures. I've organized the pictures on my iPad with tags and transferring them from an iPhoto equipped iPad to iPhoto on my Mac would surely maintain these tags, right? right? Apparently wrong? In addition, this album did not appear and all the pictures are no longer arranged by date. It's kind of strange. Based on a post I read online at the Apple Community chat, I tried synching up my iPad through iTunes. And all though the pictures synched up, I don't see how to access them through iTunes and am wondering if there are albums there somewhere (on iTunes). I'll look at that again. Ideas for that? In addition, after the transfer, (I'm not sure if was the iPhoto transfer or iTunes sync) the tags that I had added to these photos on my iPad are now missing on these photos in the album they were originally located. Fortunately,I still do have individual "tag" albums that exist on my iPad iPhoto for reference. But this is still a big pain for organizing. So ideally this is what I want: Drag/transfer an album (regular and tag) with their photos and attributes like tags from iphoto on my iPad to iPhoto on my Mac? Is there a way? Thanks! Hmm, looking at iPhoto on my Mac, it is version '11 (9.2.3) and it says it's up to date, however I'm still using Snow Leopard. On the iPad it is iOS6. I see no tag attributes available on my Mac version of iPhoto. I'm wondering if I need to upgrade it or the MacOS to Lion and wondering if that would help with the migration of albums and attributes. Thoughts? Thanks!
