Don't call it a 'gator, it's a Ranger
I have a Win 10 desktop computer. I have an iPhone 6 and an iPad Pro. I do use iTunes for working with music. I have a large collection of songs in the MP3 format on an external USB hard drive. I use iTunes to move them to the iPhone and the iPad.
I do not use iTunes to work with pictures. If I take pictures with the iPhone or the iPad, they are stored on the devices as jpegs. I use a lightning to USB cable with either the iPhone or the iPad into a USB slot on the desktop computer. File manager will show the iPhone or iPad just like any other external drive. Go through Apple iPad > Internal Storage > DCIM > 100Apple and you should see the pictures that were taken by the iPad. You can copy from, rename, delete, or even add pictures to that folder.
Here is a picture taken of my nephew in Alaska. I downloaded a bunch of them and copied them to the above location so I can show them to my friends on my iPad even though the pictures were taken by another device.
