iPad photo and blog workflow

Thursday, July 28th, 2011 @ %I:%M %p | Photography

This post explores two things I’ve become more and more interested in: editing photos on the iPad and posting blog entries from the iPad containing those photos. In other words, do I still need a computer in between?

Blog.Onno.com is based on wordpress. They have a nice iPad app in which I am typing this text. There is an ever-growing list of photo editing apps. I use Filterstorm, Pixelmagic and recently also Nik Software’s Snapseed. For getting the photos from the camera on the iPad I use Apple’s iPad camera kit.

So far so good. Except that the wordpress app is not scrolling up the text as I am typing so this paragraph is disappearing under the keyboard. It seems I have to dismiss the keyboard, tap in the window to bring it back and then the app scrolls up the text.

On to the photography. I played with one image in Snapseed using its auto-correct, drama and organic frames filters. The result you see below. The original image is somewhere in my gallery and the difference is indeed dramatic.


Previously I would edit the photos in Aperture on my Mac then upload them to my MobileMe gallery. This is the one step that while possible is awkward to do on iPad: can only upload one photo at a time, and it must be to an existing album: can’t create an album from the device?

What about archiving? By uploading photos to my Mac they’ll automatically get backed up. I used to sync my iPhone and iPad with my Mac/iTunes regularly but I hardly do that anymore. Thus to keep an archive of the original photos and the edited results it seems I’ll still need the real computer.

But still, this quick exercise has shown me that for trips like the upcoming one back to Amsterdam I could travel lightly, leave the laptop at home and perhaps keep the images on the SD card and do the archiving when I get back.
