How to Transfer Photos/Pictures between iPod and iPad?

Apple devices, such as iPod and iPad, are both good at dealing with images, videos and other media files. There are also built-in applications in the two iDevices for managing those files, such as iPhoto and iMovie. However, transferring files like photos between the iPod and iPad can only depend on additional third-party software like iTunes or iCloud. However, you have to beware of the data loss problem during the usage of iTunes. In order to sync data using the iCloud, you need to turn on the new device, and follow through with a lengthy introductory framework. Once a Wi-Fi connection has been established, you can select the RESTORE FROM ICLOUD BACKUP option. Sound confusing, right?
