A few months ago I tried my hand at processing files with the iPad. In a nutshell, I found that it was very limited in the file sizes that it could accommodate. However, I did discover that it could accommodate, quite comfortably, those files from my Canon S90, either raw or JPEG. If you read the previous post, I mentioned that I could not process M9 files on the iPad because they were too big, no matter which mode I chose.
I decided to give it another go this Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve been watching, with interest, Anita’s writings about her experience with the iPad, though she has an iPad 2 and I am still kickin it old school with the first generation Also, Earl went to Europe using his s90 and iPad, so I figured that I wanted to at least give it one more go.
I’m in south Florida, carrying nothing but the S90, an iPhone, and an iPad. Thus far, I’ve only taken time to write this one post, but I have taken a hundred or so photos, stored them on the iPad, and processed a few of them with Snapspeed and Photoshop Express, this has been pretty effortless. I’ve had no issues on file sizes.
The apps work well and make things easy to process. The files download into the iPad from the SD card fairly rapidly.
The only major problem that I’ve had consistently is that I keep missing the space bar and keep hitting the ‘n’ key, which ends up with words like: inkeepnmissingmthe space bar. I guess that I just need to get used to two finger typing for now. There are plans for a MacBook Air in my immediate future as soon as i am the sole owner of my M9, some time in January.
For posting with WordPress for iPad, I think that I will need to size my photos specifically to exactly what I want and use ‘original’ as the upload size rather than the vague: small, medium, or large. I still need to work on the workflow a bit, but it is doable, though much slower than with a laptop.
Anyway, I’ve not given up thanks to earl and Anita!
