Method 1. Change the Settings in iTunes

If you want to add photos to iPod/iPad without deleting old one, you must change the settings in iTunes in order to preserve these files on the iPad and prevent them from being erased or overwritten. Here we take iPod as example:

Connect the iPod to your computer with its included Apple USB cable. As soon as iTunes launches and recognizes the iPod click on the small "X" icon that appears in the upper right of the center status screen area on iTunes. Then click on the iPod that appears under the Devices section in the left hand side column of iTunes. Click on the Summary tab and ensure only the "Open iTunes when iPod is connected" and "Manually manage" photo options are checked off.

Click on the Photo tab and uncheck the "Sync Photos" check box to prevent iTunes from syncing the content on the iPod to matching the content on the iTunes library to prevent iTunes from overwriting song files on the iPod that are no longer on the computer.
