We store photos on the PC but transferring photos from computer to iPad or iPhone is not always as straight forward as it seems. iTunes sync is not everyone’s cup of tea for copying PC photos to iDevice; it is complicated and does not always work as expected.
Here in this guide we use iPad as an example, but CopyTrans Photo will help you directly transfer PC photos and videos to any iOS device. You can also copy entire photo folders to iPad, iPhone, or iPod with a few clicks.
Let’s transfer photos and albums from PC to your iDevice

Start CopyTrans Photo and connect the iPad, iPhone or iPod. iPad photos are displayed on the left while PC photos appear on the right.
From the far right explorer pane, select a PC folder from where you want to copy photos. Then select the individual photos you wish to transfer to the iPad. To select multiple photos, press and hold the CTRL key and click on individual photos. To select all photos, press CTRL + A.
Next, choose the iPad album on the left where to copy the selected photos.
Drag the PC photo selection on the left and drop it anywhere within the iPad photo pane. TIP: You can also drag and drop entire PC photo folders to the iPad.
Finally, click on the “Apply changes” button.
That’s it. The photos and photo albums were copied from the PC to the iPad.
The Photo Library in the context of adding photos to your iPhone/iPad
PC photos you add to any iPhone album live in the “Photo Library”.
When deleting PC photos from your iPhone, you have the option to only delete the photo’s reference from a particular iPhone album, or to delete the photo entirely from the “Photo Library” and the iPhone.
