Imported an Album from the PC to edit the photos on the iPad. Saved them to Camera Roll and they appear edited but when import Camera Roll back to the PC they have reverted to the original!

What am I doing wrong here?

Tried a post on the Apple Forums but a big roar of silence - is there a bug here?! 

Thanks

Hi - it seems that the crops and other edits performed in iOS 5 are only written as metadata instructions and not permanently saved to the file.
There may be an importing app that recognises the changes, but the simplest way to have the changes respected is to email the photos from the device. Otherwise Adobe's PS Express app is a free simple editing app that saves a new image with any crops, etc permanently applied.




Cheers,
Mike

Is this in iPhoto? It will save edited photos into a separate album. Can you export that album back to your PC? I rarely sync with a PC now so I'm not 100% sure sorry.

Thanks heaps for that Mike. Just that am going to be laid up for a few weeks and thought the iPad would be good to start editing and deleting all those 1000s of photos that pile up in the PC.

Just as aside – do you know if there is a paid version that enables you to be able to delete photos in an album? Just that 5.1 does not appear to be able to delete photos from an imported albums.

Jimmy - no - just in photos - and yes when you email a photo it stays in the edited format - just when import camera roll (where the edited photos are) back to the PC - they revert to the original!
Cheers

Hi - AFAIK you can't delete from albums.... UNLESS.... you created the album yourself on the device (only possible since iOS 5.0.
So you can add & delete photos from your 'main library' to an album you set up yourself (in album view tap edit then add).
Images edited from an app on your device and then saved back to the device (like from PS Express) can be then deleted from the 'camera roll' where they are saved to.
Hmmm... HTH
