Jpegs assembled in a folder on a PC. Created folder and moved images to it from Photoshop.
I create a folder in my PC. I then connect my iPad to the PC and through iTunes I click onto iPad, then click onto photos, then search for the folder, identify it and sync it into iTunes then sync it to my iPad.
I follow your reasoning. Question then becomes how do I get them back in order. If I go back to my original folder how do I nullify the "date modified" qualification?
