Does your Galaxy Tab have a USB port? If so, just plug your digital camera in and it should ask you about importing them using the Gallery app. Otherwise, you may have to copy them to a computer then copy them to your tablet using cloud storage, or some other method.

I bought one of these: Samsung EPL-1PL0BEGXAR USB Connection Kit: Electronics

On vacation a couple weeks ago: Plugged the camera in via its own USB cable, navigated to the newly-detected "storage" with ES File Explorer and there they were.

But your camera has to support USB filesystem, and some do not. Canon, for example. No Canon camera I've ever seen does. (One reason I never buy Canon cameras.) Alternatively: If your camera uses a microSD or microSDHC card: You should be able to pop it out of the camera and into the tablet, and move or copy your pictures, that way. Or, if neither obtains: Get the aforementioned adapter and a USB card reader that supports whatever card your camera uses.

I don't move/copy photos to my tablet, but I do find it nice for reviewing the day's captures when we're on vacation :)
