An iPad user recently wrote to me. Here is his messages: I am trying to move some photos from my computer to my iPad to make them portable so that I can enjoy these iPad pictuers wherever I am and anytime I want. Thanks for any suggestions!

iPad is great for viewing pictures with its portability and high resolution display. When you have some precious photos on computer, you may want to copy them to your iPad as well to share with your family and friends more conveniently. iTunes is an option to help you do this, but not the best way. If you want to transfer photos in the opposite direction, iTunes is helpless.

Fortunately, there is an iOS data management program out there called FoneTrans for iOS which is powerful enough to transfer images between iOS device and computer.
