The Apple iPod offers far more features than simply a music player; some models include a video player, the capacity to purchase and play games and more. In addition to serving as a repository for your music, movies, TV shows and audiobooks, the iPod allows you to store your photos on them as well. This lets you show your pictures to your friends almost anywhere, by pulling your iPod from your pocket and showing off the proof of your adventures.
Open iTunes. Plug your iPod into your computer. Find your iPod listed in iTunes' left panel under the "Devices" heading, then click on it to open a screen showing information about your iPod. Click on the "Enable disk use" box near the bottom of this screen. This allows you to access your photos more easily later.
Click on the "Photos" heading in the new iTunes screen. Click on the box immediately before the "Sync Photos from" option.
Select the folder containing the pictures you wish to transfer to your iPod in the drop-down menu just after the "Sync Photos from" option. Click either the "All folders" button (to transfer all the pictures from the folder you chose) or the "Selected folders" button (to select sub-folders of pictures from the original folder you chose). Click the "Include full-resolution photos" if you intend to transfer your pictures to a different computer.
Click the "Apply" button in the lower right corner of iTunes to begin transferring your photos to your iPod. Depending upon how many photos you are transferring, this may take a several minutes.
Click on the "Summary" tab, then on the "Enable disk use" box near the bottom of this screen. Click "OK" when prompted, then click "Apply." This allows you to access your photos more easily later.
