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.
