    I have the 64GB (3G), and I have my whole picture library on my iPad. I'm a journeyman photographer, so it's important to me to carry all my photos. After optimizing for the iPad, it's about 17GB in photos.

    I love the places feature, but it is really slow. It can take 10 seconds after I unpinch before the picture enlarges.

    Any suggestions short of not carrying all my photos? Anyone else have this aspect running very slowly?

    I have the same model iPad as u have. My photo app, including places, is super fast, almost instantaneous when I click on a location.

    Thanks for the reply.

    How much of your storage is photos? (Mine is 17GB or so and most have a geo tag)
    Is yours similar?

    I'm trying to figure out if I've pushed it too far with volume of pics and geo tags.

    No I don't have that many photos, only about 7 gig I think. But I have noted very little if any lag. I am not sure why this should be happening to you. I was actually also hoping to see other's responses to see if this is a common problem happening in the Ipad universe.

    I speculate it's the large amount of geo tagged photos you have combined with the 3G (or for all I know lack of) service in your area. I would say that most user probaly don't have their entire library of pics tagged. I do wish mine was though. What are you shooting your pics with btw?

    I agree that you're probably correct. I have a Nikon D90.
    And for older photos that weren't tagged, I've gone in and tagged them with iPhoto '09. (When I knew the location)

    It took a while to go through my library because I didn't have a camera with geo tagging ability until a couple of years ago, but it was worth the exercise.

    Today, if taking pictures with a simple camera that lacks the geo tag feature (like a pocket cam), I take one pic with my iPhone, and use that information to tag the other pics when I load them into iPhoto.
