The iPod Touch is a type of personal media player with numerous features, such as the ability to listen to music, play videos and even view photos. Viewing photos is a simple task after uploading them from your computer. The iPod uploads media through a process Apple, the developer, calls “syncing.” The syncing process works through iTunes, which is a program that comes with the iPod and installs onto your computer.
