    Hi. I am a 59 yr ole lady who bought an iPad for myself for Christmas. The neighbor helped me get it going. When we first synced it with my computer it downloaded some pictures to the iPad from the computer...I can't get them off. I apologize if this has been answered before. Please help...I don't want them on there..they were on a data card originally...Thanks in advance

    Welcome aboard.

    First off, always try to be descriptive in the TITLE of messages.

    To your problem. When you start up ITUNES, across the top (or almost top), on the far right, it says PHOTOS. When you click on that, it tells where your IPAD gets photos from. You can set a specific directory to pull only certain photos. So, it must be pulling photos from a directory that is currently selected. You can delete those photos from you PC, or move to another directory where Itunes will not look.

    Hope that helps.

    There are instructions here:

    You want the "To delete photos from your device" section.

    Edit: Congrats on your new purchase! If you have an apple store nearby, they hold free classes for iPads. I don't think the class will demonstrate this feature, but you can always ask.

    Well, if you have an Apple store nearby I suspect you can just walk in & ask any of the staff & they will be happy to help.

    Or just keep Googling solutions / posting questions here - we love to help :)

    There are several classes that you can take at Apple. You should go to find your store and there are varies choices. I got my mother an iPad for her retirement. She is 66. She loves and does not put it down.

    You can take an many classes that you want. Apple technicians are great.

    Good luck.
