Photo transfer between an iDevice and an Android device can be done in several different ways. But depending on the number of items you want to share and the tools you have, the most suitable way for you varies.
If you don't want to use any third-party software and intend to transfer photos from iPad to Android in bulk, it's advisable for you to copy photos (and videos) from the iPad to the Android phone or tablet using Windows File Explorer.
Via File Explorer, you will be able to access the DCIM folder which stores photos and videos of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, and then copy these files from the iDevice to the DCIM folder of the Android phone or tablet.
To transfer photos from iPad to Android using File Explorer in detail:
Step 1. Connect the iPad and Android phone or tablet to the computer.
Step 2. On your iPad, unlock the device and trust the computer. On the Android device, choose "Transfer photos". (If your computer doesn't recognize your iPad, go to the official guide from Apple to learn how to solve the problem.)
Step 3. Go to "This PC\Apple iPad\Internal Storage\DCIM\100APPLE" and copy the photos and videos you want to share to a folder on your computer.
Step 4. Go to ''This PC\your Android device's name\Internal shared storage\Pictures'' and create a new folder. Afterward, copy the iPad photos and videos stored on your computer to the newly created folder.
Step 5. Go to "Gallery" > "MORE ALBUMS" > "Others" on your Andriod phone or tablet to check the photos and videos transferred from your iPad.
You can try to drag and drop photos from iPad to Android directly. If that fails, follow the steps above instead.
File Explorer only allows you to transfer photos and videos from an iDevice to Android. If you also want to transfer files like music and contacts from an iPhone/iPad/iPod to Android, using iPhone transfer software like EaseUS MobiMover is necessary.
Unlike File Explorer, such a tool allows you to transfer photos, videos, music, contacts, books, and more from iPhone/iPad/iPod to computer. Thus, you can also transfer contacts from iPhone to Android or share music from iPhone to Samsung with it.
To share photos from iPad to Android phone or tablet:
First, transfer photos from iPad to computer.
Step 1. Connect your iPad to PC with a USB cable and run EaseUS MobiMover. Choose "Phone to PC" under "Data Transfer" to transfer photos from iPad to PC. Then, click the "Next" button to move on.
Step 2. To transfer photos from your iPad to PC, make sure that the "Pictures" is selected. As you can see, you can choose to move all the supported files from your iPad to the computer at once. Besides, MobiMover enables you to customize the storage path for the exported data as you need.
Step 3. Click the "Transfer" button to start transferring photos from your iPad to PC. Except for exporting files from iPad to PC, you can also use MobiMover to import data from PC to iPad with "PC to Phone" mode.
Then, copy photos from computer to Android phone/tablet:
Step 1. Connect your Android device to the computer. When a prompt appears, choose "Transfer photos".
Step 2. Open "This PC\your Android device's name\Internal shared storage\Pictures'' and copy the folder you just exported here.
Step 3. When it has done, go to "Gallery" > "MORE ALBUMS" > "Others" to check the pictures transferred from your iPad.
Both of the methods above require a computer to work. If you don't have a computer available or prefer to send photos from iPad to Android wirelessly, using cloud storage services will fulfill your needs perfectly. Services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Google Photos, can all help to share photos from iPad to Android.
To use any cloud-based service, you need to make sure there is enough storage for you to store the files you want to transfer and there are stable Wi-Fi connections on your devices.
To move photos from iPad to Android using Dropbox:
Step 1. Download and install the Dropbox app on your devices and sign in with the same account.
Step 2. On the source device, go to Dropbox, create a new folder, and upload the photos and videos you want to transfer to the folder.
Step 3. Go to the Dropbox app on your Android, check the folder, and download the photos and videos to your device.
In addition to the three ways above, transferring photos from iPad to Android can also be done with the help of an email. By adding the photos to the email, you can send them to any device that can receive it. Create an email, insert the photos, and send it to any account used on the Android phone or tablet. Afterward, check the email and download these pictures to the Android device.
Some users may want to transfer photos from iPad to Android via Bluetooth. Actually, turning on Bluetooth on both of the devices won't enable you to send photos from iPhone/iPad/iPod to Android. But there are some tools working on Bluetooth that allow you to share photos between an iDevice and an Android phone or tablet. If you prefer to use such tool. Search for them from the Internet and apply the one you trust to perform data transfer.
