For reasons best left unsaid, in a recent rebuild of my iMac and Time Capsule, I lost all my photos. I do however have them all currently on my iPad. Is it possible to retrieve my photos from the iPad back to iPhotos (now Photos) on my iMac?

have the photos on the iPad been taken with the iPad camera or imported using the camera connection kit?
Or have they been synced to the iPad with iTunes?
You can download any photos to your mac by connecting the iPad by USB to to your Mac and import to Phots, but this way only photos from the Camera Roll will be imported.  If your photos have been synced with iTunes, you can only mail them to your mac.
See:  iOS: Syncing photos using iTunes
You can't reimport pictures synced from your computer to your device back to your computer. You can only import pictures taken by your device, or saved to it, from your device to your computer. If you need to retrieve synced photos from your device, email the photos from the device to yourself. Then download the photos from the emails to your computer.

  • HT4436 I have a laptop Mac and an IPad, and would like to transfer pictures, videos, etc from the ipad to the Mac but not from the Mac to the IPad, how can I set up the iCloud in both devises to do so?

    I have a laptop Mac and an Ipad, and would like to transfer pictures, videos, etc from the ipad to the Mac but not from the Mac to the Ipad, how can I set up the iCloud in both devises to do so?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Your best method would be to connect via USB and transfer that way, since videos are not transferred using photostream.
    However you can stop photos on your mac being added to photostream in the iPhoto preferences > photostream by unchecking the automatic upload box.

  • TS1702 On my iPad several apps constantly stop opening, such that I have to re-install them: pages, keyword, Skype and adobe reader. Basically everything I need from the iPad.

    I would appreciate an advice on this:
    All of these apps regularly stop working, simply stop responding. Then, the only way to get them to work is to delete and reinstall. This loses all connections to downloaded files. It pretty much makes iPad unusable for anything but Internet surfing. Is there a trick to get them to work for a bit longer?

  • I have an ipad 2 and just upgraded to IOS 8 I have never back up my photos and I lost all of them after upgrade is there a way to retrieve all the photos I lost?

    I Have an ipad 2. I have never back up my photos ever since setting it up or ever since I bought it. Wiith all the previous upgrades that I have  I never lost any photos and videos taken from the ipad itself. Now I upgraded to the new IOS 8 and all my photos and videos are all gone. Is there a way to retrieve the lost photos and videos?

    Did you have I cloud that automatically back up you data to iCloud backup happens when you charge your iPad Have a look in Settings iCloud backup If you do then all your photos will be safe When you have iCloud if you buy a new iPhone / iPad And you use the same Apple ID all your Apps & photos will download to your new Device Cheers Brian

  • When I try to sync photos, I followed all the steps, picked one folder.  When I hit "apply" I get this error message: Are you sure you want to remove 30 apps from iPad.  This will delete these apps and their data from the iPad. What have I done wrong

    When I try to sync photos or music, I followed all the steps, picked onle folder, not the whole library.  When I hit "apply" I got this message:
    Are you sure you want to remove 30 apps from iPad.  This will delete these apps and their data from the iPad" What can I change to just download the photos and not interfere with the apps?
    (By the way, the memory is not even one quarter full)
    Thanks for your help - Pat

    I have the same problem.  I updated my mac to 10.5, which then had me update apps like itunes, etc. then it wanted me to sync my purchased music to my ipad before i updated the ipad...which worked ok. then when i was syncing the photos i got the same message when i hit "apply" asking are you sure you want to delete the 12 apps from the ipad -  clicked "no" and brought me back to the original screen. Got the same message when trying to move them from the hard drive to the ipad.  WHat is going on and how do I correct this? Thanks

  • For no apparent reason, the printing from the iPad to the HP wireless printer was no more possible, while it was still possible from the iPhone.

    For no apparent reason, the printing from the iPad to the HP wireless printer was no more possible, while it was still possible from the iPhone 5. Any idea why?

    Gutenprint drivers are intended for non-laser printers. HP supplies the proper drivers, and you can download the latest version directly from HP's support site. Or you can install the most recent HP drivers provided by Apple.
    Printing speeds do not include the time it may take to transfer data to the printer. It also doesn't take into account the time it takes for the printer to be prepared to start printing. Color is much slower than B/W.
    Contact HP for any additional assistance you may need since these forums do not provide support for non-Apple products.

    What do you mean " back up my photos or Apps"?
    The photo sync is one way - computer to ipad.
    You can transfer itunes purchases.  Without syncing:  File>Transfer Purchases
    Copy everything from your backup copy of your old computer to your new one.

  • HT4859 Last time I synced my IPad with my PC it migrated all my "Favorites" (about 100 folders) to the ICloud. I have searched and so far been unable to find out how to recover my "Favorites" list from the ICloud back to my PC. Any advice? Many thanks.

    Hi, Last time I synced my IPad with my PC, it (unknown to me) migrated all my PC "Favorites" (about 100 folders) to the ICloud.
    I have searched and so far been unable to find out how to recover my "Favorites" from the ICloud back to my PC. Any advice would

    What did you do to get them synced to the Cloud.  Would that procedure help me get my favorites synced to my iPad2?

  • Backing up files from the iPad

    I'm buying an iPad Retina tomorrow.
    I will be traveling with it shortly, and will be storing images from my camera to the iPad via a Lightning USB connector.
    Does this connector work the other way too?  I.E. can I attach an external USB key to the connector and copy files from the iPad to the key?
    btw, I do understand that I can backup using iCloud, and I will do that when I can, but uploading a day's worth of RAW files over a slow wifi isn't going to work.

    No, you're correct about wifi in Italia. It's almost always slow as heck but depends where you are. Traveled there twice since 2011, and lugged a 13" Black Macbook and external drive to back up photos in raw. Worked great but heavy. Some folks recommend the Seagate wireless external 1tb hard drive to back up files, but can't seem to verify it will handle RAW files in DNG or whichever format used.
    Others prefer the Nexus 7 Android tablet since it can connect to a portable hard drive via it's USB port and allow backup of files directly (as the iPad should be enabled to do). Not sure what Apple was thinking by depriving photographers of a critically important step in their work flow.
    I ordered a new Haswell/Intel Asus Chromebook which has built in SD card slot and USB 2 and 3 ports. You can plug in a hard drive and use the chrome book as a conduit by which you transfer camera files from the sd to the hard drive.  This, in a chrome book under $300-, and under 3 lbs. A great alternative to a way more expensive Macbook air.

    These are supposed to ship very soon but maybe not in time for your trip. I am only using it on such trips for email, web browsing, documents in google docs, and photo backup to external drives.

  • I downloaded tv shows from iTunes onto my iPad, but when I plugged into my computer it erased them from the iPad and they didn't get transferred to the computer. How do I get them back?

    I downloaded tv shows from iTunes onto my iPad, but when I plugged into my computer it erased them from the iPad and they didn't get transferred to the computer. How do I get them back?

    First, is your iTunes account on your computer, the account you set up your iPad with and the one you sync regularly with?  If yes, just reconnect your iPad to your computer, via USB and open iTunes.  After your iPad syncs, and you see the message that it's OK to disconnect, don't disconnect.  Click once on the iPad from the left side of your iTunes screen.  This will open your iPad in iTunes.  You would then click on Videos and you'll see the TV shows you downloaded.  You can choose individual shows, or choose to sync all videos to your iPad.  After you've moved what you wanted back, click apply, then sync again and you should be fine.
