I’ve been travelling the east coast of Australia over the past week, for a 2 week photo trip. For the first time I have only taken an iPad to edit a few photos as we go along.
Editing on the iPad is a fairly intuitive experience that is aided by some pretty decent editing apps there are still a few that I’m in need of finding like for instance a photomatix replacement.
The apps I’ve been using are:
- Photoforge 2
- Retouch HD
- Photo FX ultra
I’ve also been using a stylus which has made things a little more familiar and much like using a Wacom tablet.
My work flow has been as follows.
Shooting RAW files and using the Camera Connection Kit from Apple I’m able to get the files of the camera and onto the iPad.
From there I’ll usually do some editing in Photoforge 2 which allows me to use layers and masking. I’ll also open the same RAW file in SnapSeed and do a bit of editing and using layer masks in Photoforge 2 blend the two images together.
My friends at Tiffen heard about my ipad editing and sent my Photo FX Ultra which is like a iPad version of DFX v3.0 that I love to use. I’ve just downloaded it and haven’t had. Chance to really have a good go at it just yet. I have. Shot in mind which I’ll get stuck into after I’ve finished this post.
The panorama above was purely for a test to see how Autostitch worked. It’s not a iPad built app so the UI is a little off but it gets the job done. My only problem with it is obviously due to memory restrictions it can only work with 40 images.
We are now in Sydney for the rest of this week before with a few locations in mind, so if you have some places you would like to share please go ahead and I’ll see if we can get there.
Anyway I must be off, I should be able to post a little more regularly from now on.
