i do not have software


It depends on your operating system.

For Mac, use iPhoto, or if you are more experienced with digital photography, try Aperture.

For Windows, you can use Picasa or digiKAM.

**Picasa and digiKAM will also work for Mac, but iPhoto and Aperture will not work for PC.

"iPhoto makes managing your photos as easy as taking them. It helps you organize your photos so you can find them fast. Edit them so they look their best. And share them with your friends and family."

"You've taken a great shot. Now you're ready to make it even better. Aperture 3 gives you all the tools you need to turn your photography into so much more."

"Picasa is a software download from Google, that helps you organize, edit, and share your photos. The local application usage and the online storage up to 1 GB is free, and it is easy to use. The online version is called Picasa Web Albums."

"digiKam is an advanced digital photo management application for linux/KDE, which makes importing and organizing digital photos a "snap". The photos are organized in albums which can be sorted chronologically, by folder layout or by custom collections."

How do i transfer my pics frm my laptop on my ipod touch pls advise


Transferring photos from PC to iPod touch is not that difficult. iCloud and iTunes can both be helpful.
Using "Photo Stream" to sync photos automatically with iCloud is pretty convenient. Go to "Settings > iCloud > Photos (Photo Stream on iOS 6)" and then turn on My Photo Stream. Then get your iCloud started on your PC. In the iCloud Control Panel, Check the "Photos" and then enable the "Photo Stream" option. After that, import the photos into the "Photo Stream" folder on your PC, and then you will be able to view the photos on your iPod touch. Using iCloud to transfer photos from PC to iPod touch is easy, but this method needs Wi-Fi connection. Only over Wi-Fi connection can iCloud sync photo on PC with iPod touch.
transfer-pics-frm-laptop-ipod-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-3-0.png Using iTunes to sync photos with iPod touch is also easy. But you should be very careful of the syncing function of iTunes because it is a double-edge sword. Once wrong click, you may lose data in your iPod.
1. Plug your iPhone into computer via the USB cable. Launch iTunes if it doesn't launch automatically.
2. Find "File" option on the upper left corner. Then click "Add File to Library".
3. Select photos from your PC and then iTunes will sync the photos to iPhone automatically.

Summary iTunes 4.7 and later has the ability to sync photos from your computer to any iPod with a color display (including Fifth Generation iPod, iPod nano and iPod photo). Find out the answers to common questions about photo syncing.
Products Affected iTunes, iPod, iPod nano, iPhoto 4.x, iPhoto 5.x, iPhoto 6.x, iPhoto 7.x, Windows, Adobe Phototshop
What sources can iTunes sync from?
iTunes 4.7 and later for Mac OS X can sync from:
  • iPhoto 4.0.3 or later
  • A selected folder of photos
iTunes 4.7 and later for Windows can sync from:
  • Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0
  • Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0
  • A selected folder of photos
Note: You cannot select a folder to which you do not have write access, like a CD. Later versions of Adobe Photoshop Album are not compatible. iTunes will only present the option to select a folder if a later versions is installed.
How much hard drive space do I need to sync my photos?
You need to have about as much free space on your hard drive as the size of your collection of photos. iTunes constructs a photo database on your hard drive in order to make photo syncing fast when you add new photos in the future.
What file formats can I sync to my iPod?
See iPod: Compatible photo formats for a list of file formats that can be used.
Can I sync my photos to my iPod manually?
You can't drag individual photos or groups of photos to the iPod like you can with music files in iTunes, but you can choose how you want them to be synchronized (see below) by selecting the correct options:
iTunes 7 or later:
  1. Connect your iPod to your computer.
  2. Select the iPod icon when it appears in the iTunes window (below devices).
  3. If the Photos pane does not show, click the Photos tab.
  4. Select your photo syncing options.
In iTunes 6.0.5 or earlier:
  1. Connect your iPod to your computer.
  2. Select Preferences from the iTunes menu (Macintosh) or Edit menu (Windows).
  3. Select iPod.
  4. Select Photos.
  5. Select your photo syncing options.
The syncing options include:
  • If you use iPhoto 4.0.3 or later in Mac OS X, you can have iTunes automatically sync all of your photos and albums or just certain albums every time you connect your iPod.

  • If you are using Adobe Photoshop Elements versions 3.0 or later, you can sync all of your photos or just certain collections of photos.

  • If you are using Adobe Photoshop SE in Windows, you can sync either all of your photos or certain collections of photos. If you are using Adobe Photoshop Album SE in Windows, you can only sync all of your photos. Note: While Photoshop Album allows you to sync only certain collections, Photoshop Album SE does not allow you to assign collection tags that are required for this to work.
  • If you are not using any of the above applications, you can sync all of the photos in a selected folder, or only photos in specific folders inside the selected folder. Folders inside the selected folder will be displayed as photo albums on the iPod, but not subfolders beneath them.
Can I add photos from multiple computers or user accounts to one iPod?
No, adding photos can only happen from one computer or user account.
Can I sync photos from my iPod to another computer?
No, all photo syncing is one way only, from computer to iPod. You can put full-quality copies of all your photos on the iPod in the options available in the Photos pane. Then drag the full-quality photos out of the Photos folder on an iPod that has disk mode enabled to any other computer.
What does it mean when "Optimizing for iPod" appears in iTunes and what happens if I cancel?
iTunes creates TV-quality versions of your photos and stores them in a database on your computer. This makes it much faster when you add new photos to your iPod later. If you cancel this optimization, the photos are not added to the iPod.
