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.
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!
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.
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 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.
