"Getting photo's onto iPad 3"


Birmingham, US
          

I have a Nikon D700 canera. I want to get jpeg photo's on the iPad3. I purchased a "Lightning to USB Camera adapter". I also own a USB adapter for Compactflash, which is useless. Using LR4.4 I have exported my jpegs to compact disk but when I attach it to the iPad it says there are no photo's on the disk. My camera says the same, no images, but I can view the pics if I attached the compact disk to my PC. Any suggestions?

Also if you no a simplier way to get my pics from the IBM PC in LR to the iPad (or iCloud) I would appreciate it!

Hi Steve,
I have a D700 as well, soon found out the CF card was not going to work
Here are my 3 solutions,
1. Hook up the D700 and download straight from the camera,
I only do this if I want too look at images as a check when I'm on the road as these larger files are too large to be sustainable in the future. The other thing is I got an app called PhotoRaw which enables you to convert them to jpeg
2. For a quick transfer from the wife's PC to the iPad, I convert them to jpeg,
Make the longest side 900 and get them down to about 300 Kbps which is easier on the iPads memory
3. Lastly,
a. I set up a folder in pictures called "iPad Pic Sync"
b. download iTunes ( you will need to select this folder in iTunes, once done, its set until you change it)
c. copy the resized jpegs you want on your iPad to the iPad Pic Sync folder
d. Hook up your iPad to the PC and sync
Now your selected images will be on the iPad

I'm sure there are easier ways but thats how I do it,
I also just email the images from the wife's PC to my iPad, (we have separate emails)
Regards,
Gary

If my experience of people sharing photos on a trip is anything to go on then......
Hooking up the camera direct is the easiest option.

What is hard is exporting them back off.
The guy who owned the iPad had no idea how to do it and we couldn't figure out a way either.

Hi there,
I just hook the iPad up to the PC and the PC just thinks its another drive, (Dont let it sync with iTunes) and upload the images off the iPad

I don't have to do that very often unless I want to get some of my AW100 images off

As for exporting them back off, I very seldom do this as I just, "carry a hatful of cards" and they are not formatted until I get home and have the images backed up on 2 drives, I'm not a pro and my images are just average but still don't want to loose them
Regards
Gary

Ah!
Let me explain.
It was a cycling holiday (no relatives) and our objective was to load everyone's shots onto the iPad and then copy them all on to each other's cards so we each had a complete set.
i.e. I have no photos with me in them and the copies I get via Facebook are too low quality to do much with.
The others think that the quality/size of these photos is more than good enough but that is another subject.
This will not be a common scenario.

Well,
Tricky that one!
I really think someone would have to have a laptop to perform that task,
The idea was good I guess but not doable IMHO
You can get them in there with the camera connection kit but getting them out requires a computer
Cards are not that expensive now so carry lots on those trips, Im sure nobody I'd going to be carrying a memory hungry D800

Gary

Hi JRP,
Actually, I have to confess, all I have at the moment is an iPad, doing all the other stuff on other people's PCs,
Mine transpired, getting old like me
Going iMac this time around
I'm hanging off syncing until I get my new Mac

Gary
