More photos of Scillies, from iPad

A couple more photos only this time the post has been done completely on iPad. Photos taken with Lumix TZ10, edited on iPad with Snapspeed and created on iPad Blogpress App.

There are less than 8 miles on the largest island St. Marys, so no need to hurry.

D be the Caribean but is in fact St Marys Scillies just 20 miles off Lands End in Mid September.

Photo Manager Pro

At last an iPad / iPhone app that easily enables you to create albums and import your photos into them.

It does create another copy of the photo so you can erase the original, but other apps such as FlickStackr will not see them if original deleted. However you can export them to standard Photos again from PMP if necessary.

Have just remembered that you can use email to upload to Flickr, and this works fine from PMP. You can add tags in email, control who can see photo, add title and captions but I could not find a way of directing photo to a specific set.  This is described in Flickr Help.

BorderFX Aperture Plug-in

Neat free plugin I am using to build images for Flickr. It resizes and let's you put in copyright text. Also has watermark feature but not bothered with that. Give it a try.

iPad Photo Apps TouchUp & Filter Storm

After watching iPad Today Podcast (TWIT TV) I bought the TouchUP photo app they had featured especially as it claimed to use masks. Cost £1.19 but you have to pay extra if you want some additional features.

It did have the ability to apply changes to parts of the photo, but it was nowhere near as good as my old favourite FilterStorm which does the same and more better.

The other photo app I use a lot is PhotoGene.

Epson Perfection V330 LED Photo Scanner (4800dpi) Great.

I am very pleased with scanner. Main requirement for me was scanning 35mm film negs and slides. Previously I had used a much more expensive Canon 9900F buth this has no Vista or Winow 7 drivers. The scans by this much cheaper Epson are a much higher quality. The Canon was more versatile with XP as it could scan 24 negs or 16 slides in one go and also large negs up to 5x4 inches but this is academic if it does not work on modern OS. The V330 can scan a strip of 6 negs or 4 slides. But I stress the scans quality much bettr on Epson.

I had been copying slides and negs off cheap light box with my Nikon D90 with Sigma EX 105mm macro lens, but these were much poorer than the scans with Epson.

I put the neg/slides in, let it use all defaults with a small amount of sharpening and close the lid and let it roll. At 2400 dpi it takes about 10 minutes, so I do this as a background task while I do something else.

Strange over the years I have switched from Canon scanners to Epson whereas for printers I have done the reverse.
