What's in the Photos Menu

The iPod Touch makes an extremely handsome—and portable—pocket photo album and slide carousel. Once you send copies of your favorite digital pictures from your computer to your iPod Touch, they land here in the Photos menu, all within easy reach from the Home screen.

Once you taps Photos, you see all your pictures grouped into one collection known as the Photo Library. If you chose to sync up specific photo albums from Photoshop Elements, iPhoto, or whatever compatible picture program you use, the individual album names are also listed. The gray number in parentheses tells you how many pictures you have in each album.

Tap the name of any album or library to see the pictures. If you want to learn how to set up all this photo fun on your Touch, Chapter 9 has the scoop.

Tip

See that Saved Photos album at the top of the picture up there? That's where the photos you grab from the Web and email messages are stored on the Touch. To save a photo from a Safari page or a Mail attachment, press your finger on the picture until a Save Image button slides up from the bottom of the screen. Tap the button and your photo is deposited in the Saved Photos album. Any screenshots you take on the Touch (see Chapter 9 for the Tip on that) land in here as well.
