    I've put an order in for a 16 gig iPad. I'm beginning to wonder if that's enough for my photos. My iPhoto library is about 14 gig which compresses down to 4 gig on the iPhone. Can someone tell me what the comparative sizes of the photo libraries on their iPhone vs ipad are?

    These are rough numbers but my library sizes are:
    Laptop 50gb
    iPad 8gb
    iPhone 4gb

    And it took a long time at max CPU when I first synced my pictures to the iPad. Much longer than when I first synced them on my iPhone.

    Just remember different pictures compress differently depending on content so this can only be used as a very rough measure.

    Get a 64gb. 16gb is childs play when yo start digging deep into the pad. :apple:

    Ive just upgraded but to be honest its easy to resync things if you do run out of space, ie swap movies and games etc

    Similar on my end..

    6500 pictures...

    Laptop @ 80 gigs
    iPad @ 12 gigs

    Add my music @ 7 gigs
    Add my video @ 3 gigs (I haven't synced much video yet)

    I have about 37.89 gigs left...which is exactly why I got the 64 gig.
