With the built-in Photos app on the iPad, you can see and touch your photos in intuitive new ways. Your photo albums appear as tidy little stacks you can pinch to preview. Tap a stack, and the whole album opens up. From there you can scroll through thumbnails. Tap to view full screen. Or flip through photos one at a time.
The display shows off your photos in vivid color with excellent brightness and contrast. It uses a premium technology called IPS (in-plane switching) to provide an extremely wide viewing angle, so friends and family can crowd around your iPad and still get a great view. When you rotate iPad, your picture rotates, too, so you can show it off any way you want. You can even create and play your own slideshows, complete with music and animated transitions.
The iPad works seamlessly with Faces and Places in iPhoto for the Mac, so you can view your photos not only by date and event but also by who's in them and where they were taken. You can sync your photos from your Mac or PC using iTunes. You can import photos directly from your camera or its SD card using the optional iPad Camera Connection Kit. And you can save photos from email or the web to your iPad photo library or even use GoodReader to import pictures, or simply use services like MobileMe and Dropbox.
