Step 2: Go to visit https://photos.google.com/ on your PC and sign in with your Google account.

Method 4: Send pictures from PC to iPad via Email

Using email is also a workable solution if you intend to transfer several pictures from PC to your iPad.

Step 1: Add the photos you want to copy to your iPad as an attachment of an email.

Step 2: Send the email to yourself from your computer.

Step 3: Check the email on your iPad and download the attachment to your device.

By doing so, you can easily and quickly transfer photos from PC to your iPad without using iTunes. The shortcoming of this method is that it's not friendly for bulk transfer. Thus, if you prefer to copy multiple photos from PC to your iPad using a quick and direct way, go back to Method 1 to do it.
