Hi Mitch,

Can you offer a two or three sentence review of it? What's it for, Why use it?
Is it really useful? How does it compare to a full blown product like PS???

And maybe a link...?

I will be happy to add it in the stream...

Thanks, Mitch. Do you have any trouble uploading into your SmugMug from your iPad? What was the cost of the app?

Thanks for the referral!

Hi Mitch,

When did you order your CF adaptor? Was it ordered from "MIC Gadget"? I placed my order exactly 2 weeks ago today (6/14/11). Not only have I not received it yet -- I haven't even gotten an e-mail acknowledgement of the order. Very poor, IMO....

How about you?

Rays for iPad

For those who are interested in enhancing or creating sunbeams in landscapes or other photos, "Rays" is worth looking into - 99 cents.

It does the same thing as the $50 PS plug-in of the same name, other than working with layers, masks and blending modes, of course.

I recently downloaded Snapseed from Nik while traveling. This is a great app for those on the go who want to do mild processing for webposting. I was able to upload my RAW files from a D700 and work on them directly. I believe there is a way to get the modified files from the iPad to your main computer, but I did not use this for my purposes.

There is a one-click fix, global adjustable fixes, a dumbed down version of Viveza with control points, a dumbed down Silver EFX, and several creative filters. All filters allow a degree of control, and the control points allow adjustments in brightness, saturation, and contrast. I was able to upload images through the camera connection kit, open them up, and create JPEGs with resolution matching the original iPad screen. Snapseed can be directly linked to Facebook and Flickr accounts.

The interface is fantastic. Vertical sweeps to select which parameter to adjust, and horizontal sweeps to make the adjustments. Once on the iPad, it took only a minute or two to dramatically improve the photo, and I just uploaded images to the web when I came across a hotspot. The app only costs $4.99 or $5.99 too!

Ah, the link I was provided with is a US .com link.
Try searching within iTunes, in the Store section and under Apps.
I found it in my UK store by searching for "Nikon Manual".
You could also search for the same directly from your device's App store.

After searching, it would appear that apple.com/ca/ does not offer the same ability to search for itunes apps online, but must be done from your itunes app, or your device.

If the app only allows you to read Nikon Manuals, why not just DL
the PDF versions and view from there?

Or am I missing something as usual? LOL!!!

Nikon's Manual Viewer also only seems to have current manuals available to it. Much better to d/l the PDF versions and read them with FastPDF+ or similar.
