I have to say that, I'm pleasantly surprised by this book. I had no idea of the breathe and depth of photo tools available through the app store.

I stopped carrying a dedicated camera, now that my iPhone has more megapixels, then my old camera has. I found the transferring and photoshopping of the images to my computer, tiresome to get the images to look how I want. This book showed me multiple options for not only taking photos, but manipulating them as well. Nancy's catalogue was extensive, and gives me a lot of different tools to play with.

The writing is clear and concise, with lots of descriptions and photos, that should really help me narrow down the tools I need to keep on my iDevices. It's good to see photos, and examples of what the apps can do; that way I won't have to waste time and money on apps I won't use.

I highly recommend this book if you're a photo-junkie and love to use the camera app on your iDevice; this will give you some serious options on how to handle the photos, before you share them with family, friends and the world.

I'll admit that my mobile photos are pretty boring. So lately, I've checked out different apps to help me improve their image quality. The problem? There are literally HUNDREDS of apps in the iTunes store. So it's hard to know which "image editor app" to pick. That's why I found a ton of value from Nancy's book!

Basically, this book is a review of the different apps you can use to edit and add a bit of style to your photos. I found it especially useful since it's geared towards people of different skill levels.

What I liked best is how Nancy detailed the special features that each app offers. Plus, she provides sample photographs of how to use this feature. This small detail really helped me decide which app is right for me. For instance, she listed the "My Sketch" app which turns your apps into eye-catching illustrations. Now I can create lots of images that people will love!

Overall this is a great guide if you're looking to use iPad/iPhone apps to create awesome images!

25 Must Have iPad Apps for Digital Photogrpahy
http://www.amazon.com/Must-Have-iPad-Digital-Photography-ebook/dp/B0099SJZS2

I've been a long-time PhotoShop user (starting way back with v. 3!), so when I got my iPad I never saw it as a way to do meaningful digital editing. I played around with some photo apps (like Instagram and Skitch) but I never got into much more than that. When I read this book I realized just how much I could do with the iPad and my digital images. Some of the suggested apps really are just for fun, but I was surprised at the ones that were close to PhotoShop-like features like layers and other high-end adjustments. I also discovered a few apps that create off-the-wall looks that I would have spent a lot of time in PhotoShop creating. What's also great is a bunch of the apps are free - and the complex ones only cost a few bucks.

Thanks to Nancy Hendrickson for putting together such a great resource book for those of us who use iPhones and/or iPads.

Many of us carry our iPhones or iPads with us all the time, so we don't have to miss any photos any longer. And now with this book, we not only can take photos whenever the mood strikes but also use apps to improve and enhance those photos. The problem is that it's often difficult to decide which apps are the ones to use. Now that is no longer a problem since Nancy has put this great resource together as reference.

Thanks again, Nancy.

I would consider myself a novice when it comes to photography, and as there are so many different apps to choose from that could help to improve the photos I take, I found this book to be a very helpful guide. I have already explored some of the ones that the author has suggested, including Painteresque, which is an app that is easy to use but produces great results. I liked the way the author presented her material, and I found the information that she presented to be thorough and factual, although she did share her personal opinions on quite a few of the various apps, giving the book that personal touch. A highly recommended resource.

Even though I take a lot of iPhone pictures I was surprised to see how sophisticated digital editing has become. For example, I didn't know there were apps that created layers and masks for iPhone photos - I thought this was more in the realm of Photoshop. I liked the layout of this book, the categories, and the photos that were used to illustrate how to use an app or features that were almost hidden from the top view.

I may end up using some of the more advanced editing tools, but I also liked learning about the one-tap apps that could instantly transform a photo into a pop image or a picture that looked like it was painted by a true artist. There's a wide range to choose from - and this book will save me buying a lot of apps that I may never use.

Going to the App Shop is a bit like going to a really huge supermarket - you get easily overwhelmed by the choice ;-) That is the moment where books like this come in handy for me as they take out a lot of the guess work which app I actually might like and which not. The other point I appreciated, apart of the detailed reviews and examples of what each app does, was the variety of topics (aka sharing, editing etc) and prices (both free and paid apps are covered). Highly recommended, and, btw, also a great gift for the 'iPhotographer' in your life ;-)
