DPP Solutions: iPad Apps For Pro Photographers
A selection of apps that any professional with an iPad should think about getting
One of the key benefits of the iPad is the ability to quickly and easily share images, whether via a slideshow presentation or through e-mail. If you’re working with images directly on the iPad, chances are you’ve not yet applied a watermark to your photos. With Impression by Blue Crowbar (visit iTunes Store), you can add a simple watermark (including the ability to adjust the opacity of that watermark) to an image with ease. Simple, but effective.
Just The Beginning
The applications presented here are only the first to be made available. In fact, we can only speculate that Adobe will expand their current Photoshop.com Mobile offering (currently supporting the iPhone as well as Android and Windows Mobile smartphones) to soon be available in an iPad version.
The ongoing theme with the iPad is that it represents incredible potential. What’s most exciting about the iPad is that it might just be the device that finally proves the viability of a tablet computer. For many photographers, the iPad also represents a handy accessory that can make their work more productive and enjoyable, thanks in part to some very cool applications that are already available for the iPad, and many more that will surely be available soon.
