There are two methods:

1. Connect your camera to your computer and sync your pictures to iPhoto (or Aperture) on a Mac or the "My Pictures" folder on a PC. Then select what photos you want to put on the iPad and sync them through iTunes.

2. There is also the Camera Connection Kit available separately from Apple ($29?). Lets you plug SD cards or cameras directly into the iPad for direct import.

Thanks, Chas. I know your first suggestion is possible, but I want direct connection from the camera and the CCK only seems to connect to the iPad. I have the iPad mini, which has a Lightning connection only. How does the CCK connect to it?

You could connect using the 30 pin to Lightning adapter that Apple sells, but I would check first to see if the CCK is fully supported by it.

EDIT: Look to see if any of these suit you

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Probably best to wait until Apple revises the CCK to use the Lightning adapter. I'm a little surprised they haven't done so already!

Actually, they appear to have done so if you follow the link I posted previously.

EDIT: two more links
