Add photos to iPod, iPhone, or iPad

If you have an iPod with a color display, an iPhone, or an iPad, you can add digital photos to it using iTunes.

You can connect some iPod models to a TV to view photos.

To add photos to your iPod, iPhone, or iPad:

  1. Connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer.

  2. When your device appears in the iTunes window (below Devices), select it and click the Photos button.

  3. Select “Sync photos from” and choose an album or folder from the pop-up menu.

    If you’re using Adobe Photoshop Album or Adobe Photoshop Elements, you can export photos directly from those applications to your device by choosing Photoshop Album or Photoshop Elements from the pop-up menu.

  4. Choose whether to move all your folders or albums, or only selected folders or albums.

  5. To also move the full-resolution versions of these photos to your iPod, select “Include full-resolution photos.”

    Note:   You should select this option if you plan to move the photos from your iPod to another computer. This option isn’t available on iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad.
  6. Click Apply.

If it’s the first time you’re adding photos to your iPod, iPhone, or iPad, it might take a while, but subsequent syncs should be faster.

To move full-resolution photos from your iPod to another computer, select “Enable disk use” in the Summary pane. This option isn’t available on iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad. For more information, see Use iPod as an external hard drive.

For more information about using your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to view photos, see the documentation that came with your device.
