When you plug the iPod into the computer, iTunes should recognize the Nano after a minute or less. When it does, click on the icon of the Nano, and then click the Photos tab. Then check the box that says Sync from folder, and select the folder that your photos are stored in. The iTunes tool is not very precise or suer-friendly, and needs a lot of work. But, that is how it works. It usually only gives you an all-or-nothing choice - either load EVERY photo in a given folder, or load none of them. You may have to create a special folder on your desktop that you plan on storing only photos that you intend to sync to your iPod.

When you disconnect the iPod from your computer, you will be able to access your photos. You will also see that iTunes has created a "Photos" folder on your iPod where there wasn't one before.

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.

Ipod quickformat and does not work


To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?


Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support

Nano and iPod "Color"


Upon first glance it would be safe to assume that the iPod nano is a "micro" version of the iPod "Color" models, and in a few ways this is a safe statement. Both systems use the "Clickwheel" (which places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel), have color displays, have software that uses color for all interface elements and applications, use the "Myriad" font, and are capable of displaying photographs in addition to playing music and transporting files. At 3.5 inches tall, 1.6 inches wide, and 0.27 inches thick the iPod nano is both physically smaller, compared to 4.1 inches tall, 2.4 inches wide, and 0.75 inches thick for the iPod "Color" models, and holds less data on 2.0 GB or 4.0 GB of Flash Memory, compared to 20 GB, 30 GB, 40 GB, or 60 GB hard drives for the iPod "Color" models. However, there are also some important differences between the iPod nano and iPod "Color" models as well. Unlike the iPod "Color" models, the iPod nano lacks video out, and as a result, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera either. However, in addition to the calendar, contacts, and notes software from previous models, the iPod nano includes additional software functionality, such as a "Screen Lock" security feature, a stopwatch, and a "world clock".
