Now, I am wondering if I can take what I first put on the iPad and move them to the laptop. Does anyone regularly do this? Or, do you know if it can be done?

So, in order to get more storage space or to keep data safe, it's necessary to transfer photos from iPad to computer freely, in this article, we'll give you two ways.
