How can I transfer photos from my camera to my iPad?

Apple Camera Connection Kit

Episode 1429

Tim from Long Beach, CA

Rob is a professional photographer and he wants to use an iPad Pro to capture his images from his camera. Leo says that there are shortcomings here, because the camera connection kit by Apple doesn't really work well, and the iPad can't read RAW files. So he'll have to look at JPEG images. That's why Leo gave up on it. Canon has an iOS app that would enable him to wirelessly transmit photos to his iPad if his camera has wireless capability. It works quite well. The only other option would be to use his Mac and then copy the photos over from there.

How can I upload my images to Google Photos?

David from Mission Viejo, CA

David has about 20,000 photos in Apple Aperture. What's the best way for him to upload them to Google Photos? He tried the Google Photos uploader, but it won't work. Leo says that Google Photos may have trouble finding them. He should look for a folder called "Original Photos" and make a copy of it. Then he can point the uploader to that copy.

Is there an app that can identify duplicates in Google Photos? Leo says he doesn't know of one, but there are plenty of de-dupe apps that can do it before he uploads.
