June 11th, 2011 – Portable Post-processing on the iPad

Lately I’ve discovered the joys of mobile image processing  on the iPhone  and posting the smaller size images to Instagram.  The amount of photo apps out there is pretty amazing as well as the results people are able to generate from these mobile cameras. When I learned about the new iPad app Snapspeed from Nik Software it got my wheels spinning about the ability of actually processing some image on the iPad. I posed the question here on Twitter to see if anyone else had implemented a “mobile workflow”, but didn’t see much response.  Knowing about the quality of Nik’s other products, I went ahead and forked over the 4.99  for the app to see what it could do and if I could actually use just the iPad to process some quality images. I’ve had the connection kit sitting my bag for several months and it comes in real handy for importing images straight into the iPad. Turns out this nifty little app is pretty cool and easy to work with. The processing seems a bit slow on my version 1 iPad, but still very good results from such a small package. I was particularly impressed with the Black & White filters. Both of these images were RAW files from the Canon S95.
