    Is there a way to change the picture in the photo albums on the iPad?

    When i sync photo albums to my iPad, the iPad/itunes just randomly selects a photo from the folder and makes that the album thumbnail cover, how can I change this to a photo of my choosing?

    Thanks.

    If you're using iPhoto or Aperture on a Mac you can set each album with a 'key photo'. For anything else I don't think it's possible, but others here may know otherwise.

    Except for the cheeky and obvious answer nobody has mentioned yet... :apple:

    It appears the iPad displays the photo that has the oldest "date taken" as the album thumbnail. Not sure how you can get around that, but I'll bet someone knows.;)

    Edit the exif data of the photo you want set as the key photo to be the oldest time, I guess.

    Can this be done through Windows, or do I need to download a software program?
