“How do I recover deleted photos on iPad? I organized my photos into Folders for easy viewing then deleted them from the Camera Roll thinking that once in folders my photos would be safe. But soon I discovered that deleting photos from the camera roll also deletes the photos from the folders!”

When you come across this kind of problem, take it easy, there are two ways for you to achieve iPad photo recovery. If you have done a backup via iTunes before you deleted the photos, you could recover deleted iPad photos from previous iTunes backup.
