Part 1. How to Transfer Photos from PC to iPad Without iTunes

Speaking of data transfer between an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and a PC, you may think of using iTunes as the default way. However, although workable, using iTunes is neither the only nor the best way for you to transfer photos from PC to iPad. That's because, as you may know, transferring photos to iPad using iTunes will cause data syncing on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, which means the existing files on your iDevice will be synced by the newly imported items. (There are also users who want to know how to transfer photos from laptop to iPad without iTunes. You can use the very same methods provided in this article to get things done.)

Method 3. How to Import Photos from PC to iPad with iCloud

Since you are an iPad user, you must be quite familiar with iCloud, the cloud-based storage service developed by Apple. With iCloud, you can access your files across your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac, PC, and on iCloud.com. With iCloud Photos on, the photos on your PC will be automatically synced to your iPad while connected to Wi-Fi. Unlike Google Photos that provides unlimited free storage for you to store photos, iCloud only provides 5GB of free space for you. If the photos you want to transfer to your iPad are larger than 5GB, you need to buy more storage from Apple. 

To transfer photos from PC to iPad using iCloud:

Step 1. Go to "Settings" > [your name] > "iCloud" > "Photos" and turn on "iCloud Photos" on your iPad.

Step 2. Download and install iCloud for Windows on your PC.

Step 3. Run iCloud for Windows on your computer and sign in with the Apple ID you use on the iPad.

Step 4. Click "Options" next to "Photos" and enable "iCloud Photo Library".

Step 5. Make sure "Upload new photos and videos from my PC" is turned on. Tap on "Change" under this option to choose the folder that has the photos you want to transfer from PC to your iPad.

Step 6. After the syncing process, you can access the photos in the Photos app on your iPad.

Thus, if you prefer to copy multiple photos from PC to your iPad using a quick and direct way, go back to the three tips introduced above.
