How to Transfer Photos from iTunes onto an iPhone or iPad

Learn how to transfer photos from iTunes onto an iPhone or an iPad in this Mac tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, Lisa here. I'm going to show you how to transfer photos from iTunes onto an iPhone or iPad. So first your going to plug in your iPad like I have. You can click on it on the left hand side, and it's going to bring up the information on the main screen. After that, you want to go over to the tab that says "Photos" at the top, click on it, and you're going to check the box that says "Sync Photos." Now you're going to choose where you're going to sync from. You can leave it on the default of iPhoto, or you can actually choose another folder.

So in this case, I have a folder on my desktop with some pictures I'd like to sync. So I choose desktop, and there's my folder called Pics. Once I've selected that folder, I can say open in the bottom right hand corner. And now it shows me how many pictures are actually going to sync onto the iPad, right here. It's three. So down on the bottom I'll say Apply. And now it's syncing the iPad and copying those pictures over. So now that's done, I can pick up the iPad, unlock it, go to my photos, and there's my pictures. And that's it. That's how you sync photos from your computer to your iPhone or iPad.
