Book Description

19 Dec 2011
The photography community has been among the earliest and most enthusiastic adopters of Apples revolutionary iPad. With its crystal-clear display, powerful graphical capabilities and intuitive interface, its certainly an effective way to show off photographs. But what else can it do? In this, the first book on the subject, Ben Harvell explains how the iPad is revolutionising the way that pro photographers work. There are powerful photo editing applications, easy-to-use photo sharing and display programs, and useful tethered-shooting capabilities; this book explains all, and will be a must-read for digital photographers everywhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment City. 18 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Oh dear. A keen photographer, I have recently decided to move my workflow away from laptop in the field, and instead use the iPad to store photographs in Raw and JPG, using the brilliant retina screen of the "New iPad" to display my shots whilst on location, leaving major editing until I return to the PC. So far the system has worked fairly well, but I felt in the need to help in more efficiently using the capacities of the iPad. Surely a book called "The iPad for Photographers: A Guide to Managing, Editing, and Displaying Photographs Using Your iPad" would be of great valuie to an experienced photographer and Lightroom/Photoshop user but iPad noob like myself?

No. This is more an introduction to the iPad with a nod to photography in that it explains how to use the standard Photos app, with some comment on a couple of other apps that on searching and trying are disappointing. There's no detail on workflow, and although the section on tethered shooting is useful, it's basic stuff.

Also, do I REALLY want to know how to use Apple's Productivity Suite, and how to display photographs in Keynote and Pages? Surely most people would already know how to do this?

I'm now conscious that I seem to be writing a "it's not for me"review. Seriously, however, I should have expected more detail, more focus on serious if amateur photographers, and an appreciation of how photographers could use the iPad as part of workflow.

Good news, however: Amazon inform me that I can trade it in for a 40 pence Amazon voucher. Too late: the book is already in a charity bag outside awaiting collection by Oxfam.

Readers (if you've got this far!) might, however, be charmed to know that the book is actually shaped and sized like an iPad! I wasn't.

2.0 out of 5 stars Out of Date Book 4 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this item as I am new to iPads but a keen amateur photographer and have just taken possesision of an iPad 4th Gen. I am not happy with this purchase. As far as I could tell this was written for the iPad 2; it was superficial and provided not much more than I had already found out from general use. I assumed this book would be current. Having revisited Amazon's page to look at this book I could find no reference to this being for iPad 2's. This will make me think three times in the future about purchasing from Amazon and I will always try and find an alternative supplier from now on. The fact there was no indication this was not current was the most annoying thing about this transaction. The date against the publisher should have set alarm bells ringing but books in fast changing environments are updated to keep up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what you might think it is. 5 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brought this book hoping it would provide some useful tips on how to manage photos on my iPad. Instead I found that this nothing other than an (out of date) sales guide to a load of different apps and software. Could have written something like this myself after reading a few product ads/reviews.

Disappointing. Look elsewhere if your after something which will tell you how to get the best out of your iPad with what it's got built into it as standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have an IPad and a camera, get this book 28 Sep 2012
By Tutor-p
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This well written and comprehensive book is beautifully presented and brings together essential information and advice that would otherwise take many hours of research. With the list of contents at the front , and a comprehensive index at the back, this is my kind of book. Any information you need can instantly be located, or alternatively, just leaf through the pages for an enjoyable read. This beautifully illustrated manual is a must for the iPad enthusiast who is also a keen photographer.
