How to Transfer Files to Your iPhone or iPad (for Beginners)

So I wanted to copy an image file to the iPad because there was no way to print it out and I needed to present an invitation at the door to the reception. Easy, right? Not if you're using Apple. Eventually, I found the answer - you have to open iTunes, click on the iPad from the list at left, click on the 'Apps' tab at the top of the screen, and scroll down where you'll see the 'file transfer' section. None of the native apps actually support file transfer, but some apps you can download (like Terra, a browser you can use to replace Safari) will. To view your uploaded file, use file:///whatever.ext (yes, I know you can also email the file, but this means you have to be online, which doesn't work if you've lost your login credentials, which I had).
