How to Assign a Photo to a Contact on Your iPad

With the Contacts application on your iPad, you can add a person’s photo to his contact record. You add photos from the Photos app albums, which you have saved from a Web site, uploaded from a digital camera, received as an e-mail attachment, captured as a screenshot, or synced from photo collections stored on your computer.

1With Contacts open, tap the contact you want to add a photo to.

If you want a more powerful contact-management app, check out Contact Journals – iPad Edition. It syncs with your Contacts app content and can also sync with a computer contact-management program such as Outlook.

2Tap the Edit button and then tap Add Photo.

The Photo Albums dialog opens.

3Tap either Saved Photos or Photo Library, depending on where the photo is stored.

Saved photos are those you’ve downloaded to your iPad or taken using the screen capture feature; the Photo Library contains photos synced from your computer.

4In the photo album that appears, tap a photo to select it.

The Choose Photo dialog appears. If you want to modify the photo, move the image around in the frame with your finger, or shrink or expand it by pinching your fingers inward or outward.

5Tap the Use button to use the photo for this contact and then tap Done to save your changes.

The photo appears in your Contact Info page.
