    Recently I noticed a lot of my photo albums missing on my iPad, and the ones left missed a lot of pictures. So I connect my iPad to iTunes and go to the photos tab to check it out, and next to each album it either says "0" pictures or a much smaller number than it used to. When I open iPhoto everything is normal - it says 852 pics for instance on one photo album which iTunes only thinks contains 190 pics.

    What the hell is wrong? Why did so many of my pictures suddenly turn invisible to iTunes? I know I can just sync the actual photo folders on my comp instead of this ever buggy iPhotos folder, but by doing so I will not get "faces" on my iPad/iPhone.

    Can anyone help?

    You could try rebuilding your iPhoto library (search google...). Maybe it is corrupted and only iTunes has a problem with it.

    Did you also check the synching settings in iTunes? Did you check to sync all photos?
