I have found an easier way to transfer jpg's from the ipad without going into itunes.
Connect Ipad, dbl click on my computer you should see your ipad listed under the drives, click on it then you will get the dcim directory open it and all your photo's are in there. Its a shame the ptg files are not in the same directory. you have to go into Itunes to get those.

(Paint what you see, not what you know to be there) in my case it's (paint what I know to be there not what I see).
