i thought I had written everything I needed to download pics. But cannot remember, even from my notes.  I spent an hour browsing forum and saw every other topic- iPad to pick, iPhone to pick, camera to iPad etc. I didn’t see iPhone to iPad. Kkathy

When you use Google Photos – the pictures go from your iPhone to the cloud – your Google Account online. Then you set up the iPad with the Google Photos App and the same account and it will see those photos in the cloud. You don’t actually transfer the pictures from iPhone to iPad. It’s iPhone to cloud, iPad to cloud. All pictures collect in the Cloud – then any device using Google Photos and set up with your Google account email and password will see all the pictures collected.

I know I owe you a phone call. I’ll try to get to it today (Thu), definitely tomorrow.
