Transferring photos from an iPad to a Windows 7 PC

I have heaps of photos on my iPad that I would like to transfer to my PC ( Picasa) .

I have connected my iPad to my Computer using the USB cable. My iTunes page comes up but there is no icon  my iPad .

I seem to have AutoPlay but on Autoplay there does not seem to be a link to the iPad so I do not see an  option to import photos.

If I go to start ... Computer... Control Panel . I have an Apple Mobile Device USB Driver but if I right click on the icon there are no options so I am not sure if I need to do something else.

Can someone take me through a step by step process?



Import photos in Windows 8

Import photos and video from your   device to your PC:

  1. Connect your iOS device to your computer.
  2. Move the cursor to the upper-right corner and click the magnifying glass icon.
  3. Type Computer and press Return.
  4. Right-click the logo for your device and click "Import pictures and videos."
  5. Click More Options.
  6. Click the Browse button next to the "Import images to" field and choose where to import your Camera Roll's photos. By default, these will import to the My Pictures folder.
  7. Select "Delete files from device after importing."
    • If you delete photos after you import them, you can reduce the size of your Camera Roll and improve backup and restore times.
    • If you wish  to import the photos to other computers, don't select this option.
    • If you don't want Windows to delete photos from your camera on subsequent imports, deselect this option when you're finished.
  8. After setting your import options, click OK to dismiss the window.
  9. Click Import.
  10. After the import is complete, Windows will display your photos.
