How to Get Pictures on Your IPod

Apple set a new standard with the iPod, changing the way music lovers store, carry and listen to the music they love forever. Instead of just stopping here, a company renowned for its focus on innovation continued to improve the music device, adding new features to it and thus making it into something that could far more than just play music.

One of the many things that an iPod allows you to do is to view pictures. Transferring pictures from the computer to the Apple music device is very simple and can be done in a matter of minutes.
