    Photos from iPad to Macbook?
    Last week my hdd went on my macbook. I had some pics sync'd to my iPad from my iPhoto library. Since I never had these pics backed up on my macbook, my iPad is the only source I have now. Is there a way to get these pics back onto my macbook?

    I have tried connecting to a PC but can only import Camera Roll. I have tried connecting to iPhoto, but can only import from Camera Roll. I have tried Senuti, but can get video but not pics. Any other ideas?

    Specs:

    If these pictures you have on your iPad aren't on the camera roll ... where are they exactly?

    You may be able to use iExplorer - Formerly iPhone Explorer, is an iPhone browser for Mac and PC

    Is the HDD really dead? Assuming you've replaced it now have you tried connecting it via usb (in an enclosure or USB to SATA adapter)?
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    The pics aren't on camera roll, they were sync'd with iTunes from my iPhoto library. Hdd is dead, I have tried connecting with an adapter....it won't mount. I did however solve my problem....Dropbox allows me to upload the photos, then I can download them on my MacBook.
