I purchased an iPad and several of the apps and accessories covered in the book, to use for photography, prior to buying this book. So much of the information in the book was not new to me. Still, the book taught me a few useful things about each of my apps that I didn't already know.

This book would be of the greatest value to someone contemplating using an iPad for photography who hasn't purchased one yet. The book's advice on workflows, apps and accessories would then be of huge value. This book also gives you a good feel for the use and functionality of several expensive apps, such as Photosmith, letting you make an informed decision on whether or not you want to spend the money for them.

Recommended for pros and advanced amateur photographers only. Not for beginning photographers.

There are lots of iPad books out there, but this is the only one that should be considered by a photographer who wants to use Apple's tablet computer as serious tool. If you're like most, you've puzzled over "tethering" your iPad using ShutterSnitch or Eye-Fi cards, and generally wondered which apps are useful and which apps are rip-offs. You're perplexed about how to get images in and out of your iPad, especially if you use CF cards. This book has all the answers. Buy it and be prepared to discover things you never suspected your iPad could do.

As both a Photographer and a Teacher, I find "The iPad for Photographers by Jef Carlson" to be one of the most valuable reads for both my own knowledge and for my students. Jeff Carlson covers the "how to" aspects needed by every photographer such as: moving images into the iPad, editing secrets with easy to use apps and then how to share the images on the iPad or on line. His directions are easy to read and follow step by step. I have also discovered in the book more tips and tricks needed by photographers to make the iPad work for better use of our time. I have found more ways in which I can make the iPad work for me with out always luging around my laptop for presentations and demos.

Although this is slightly behind the times due to the rapid advance in iPad technology, I found it especially useful as it led me to the iUSBport, which allowed me to back up my pictures from my iPad to my portable hard drive. It also helped me to use my existing apps directly and to find a raw editing app.

I bought an iPad mainly to work on my photos when traveling and wanted a guide to help me understand photo work on the iPad. focus on what apps are best for certain things and how they work was so much fun to explore.This has proven to be one of the most helpful of all the how-to manuals I have ever purchased. Highly recommended

Carlson touches upon the most important considerations for those contemplating leaving the laptop at home on the next family vacation. He discusses the benefits and limitations, and offers helpful hints that I would not have discovered on my own.

Very clear and interesting book about how to manage photos on the iPad. It`s an easy reading and very practical book which I recommend without any restriction. If you enjoy seeing your pictures on a much better way on the iPad, buy the book.
