Is it possible to sync photos to the Pre via iTunes?

I would like to use iTunes to sync music and photos to the Pre.  I can get iTunes to sync the music.  I can get it to say it's sync'd my photos from iPhoto.  I can play the music on the Pre, but I cannot find and display the photos on the Pre.  Any suggestions?

Yes, with the pre hooked up to itunes tap the pre icon, then go over and choose the picture tab and towards the bottom there is a box, "Include Hi-Resolution Pictures"  check it.

Thank you.  I'll try as you suggest when I get home from work.  I didn't check the "high resolution" box because I thought I could save some storage space on the Pre if iTunes sent over the "formatted for iPod" versions of the photos.

Levi is correct.  If you don't check that box, they don't copy.  No idea why.

That works much better.

It's not a complete solution.  Only 8 of 10 photos in my test album were sync'd properly.  The other two produced an error message in iTunes stating they were not transferred to the Pre because the "iPod" could not display them.  That's interesting because the two photos that wouldn't copy over were taken by the same camera, with the same basic settings, as the other eight.  In addition, when I emailed the photos, the Pre could download and display them.  The photos could also be displayed when I copied them to the Pre when it was set up as a "USB device".

Any ideas why these two would not sync?
