While waiting for iCloud, is there an easy way to transfer pictures taken with the iPhone to the iPad either automatically or manually ? I love the Camera+ app on my iPhone but I'd like to process some of my pictures with Snapseed. I just don't want to use the crappy iPad camera to take pictures.

I'm not sure if there's an automatic way to do it. But one simple way is:
* Plug in iPhone to PC/Mac
* Use Nikon Transfer to transfer iPhone photos to the computer
* Plug in iPad
* Use iTunes to point to directory of tranferred iPhone photos to sync with iPad

Done. Depending on how you want your files structured, you may want to do a manual copy step in there between directories of course.

But as far as I'm aware you have to manually copy the photos from your iPhone to your Mac/PC.

Thanks Bret but that's exactly what I want to avoid. I know there's an app on Cydia that automatically downloads your pictures to the cloud like Dropbox. It's as if your camera roll is in the cloud so you can share it with all your jailbroken iDevices. Unfortunately, I own an iPad 2 which can't be jailbroken at this time so this option isn't possible for me right now... That's why I'm trying to find something that exists in the app store.

I don't have an iPad but I do have an iPhone. Try this and let me know.
1. Connect the iPhone, close iTunes if it opens
2. Connect the iPad
3. From the desktop, click on Go on the top Tool Bar
4. Applications
5. Image Capture
6. Image Capture should recognize the iPhone and be shown under Devices
7. At the bottom where it says "Import To: Other
8. See if the iPad is available, select the directory
9. Import

Why not just email them to yourself and save them on your iPad? That's what I just did...making sure I sent original size.

Easy to do until iCloud comes out
