How to import photos into your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad

January 26, 2012

It seems as though photography apps have been increasing at a breakneck pace lately. They’re so much fun to play with but sometimes we don’t want to use them only for photos we take with our devices, or maybe your device doesn’t have a camera.

Many people have asked me how they can get photos from their computer to their devices without having to send them through email. Good news! You can sync photos from folders in your computer using iTunes. Here are the simple steps you must follow:

  • Connect your device to the computer to which you usually sync to
  • Load iTunes
  • After selecting your device on the left menu, select the “Photos” tab at the top right

  • Check the “Sync Photos From” option

  • Click on the drop down list to find the folders you wish to sync from

  • Browse and select the folders you wish to sync photos from

  • Click the “Apply” button at the bottom right

  • And voila! You are done! Now you will have a folder in your device’s library containing the photos you have just synced. As easy as that!

Did you know Kid-Capsule has scrapbook style layouts for sharing your events? – Part II in a Series

“Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.” – Charlotte Brontë

Kid-Capsule has 3 ways of sharing your family photos, memories, milestones and events:

  • Send an e-mail
  • Post to your Facebook wall
  • Send the packaged event to other Kid-Capsule users

All three methods have the option of attaching a photo to go along with it. Each photo will be highlighted with a scrapbook style background and a vellum style tag with the event details written on it.

As of Version 1.2 there are 2 backgrounds to choose from: Classic and Winter. But get ready for version 1.2.1 of Kid-Capsule, it will have 3 new backgrounds to complete the seasons and it will offer an easier way to select the background for your image.

This is how easy it is:

Every event is equipped with a sharing button:

Once you tap the sharing button you will have 3 sharing options as described above:

If you decide to share a photograph with your event, you will be presented with the event’s image gallery:

As of version 1.2 you will have the option of selecting the classic green background and a winter wonderland background:

Kid-Capsule then works its magic and you have a beautiful scrapbook style layout for sharing your event:
