“I’m here working on a couple of art commissions and leading a private workshop and I brought the new iPad Pro along to better understand how it can integrate into the mobile photographer workflow. How does it work to ingest, backup, edit, and share images?

The art installation I’m working on is extremely large format (up to 50 ft. wide), so I’m shooting most of this project with the Hasselblad H6D-100c (a 100-megapixel beast). Needless to say, it’s been a great camera to test the speed of this new iPad Pro”.

New iPad Pro with all-screen design is most advanced, powerful iPad ever! With New Pencil Too That You’re Going To Love

Share

This is the biggest update we have ever seen to the iPad and it’s beyond exciting! Apple today introduced the new iPad Pro with all-screen design and next-generation performance, marking the biggest change to iPad ever. The all-new design pushes 11-inch and 12.9-inch Liquid Retina displays to the edges of iPad Pro and integrates Face ID to securely unlock iPad with just a glance. The A12X Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine in iPad Pro outperforms most PC laptops and offers a new USB-C connector, Gigabit-class LTE, and up to 1TB of storage to enable powerful new mobile workflows.2 With over a million apps designed to take advantage of the large Multi-Touch display, including next-generation apps like Photoshop CC on iPad (coming 2019), the new iPad Pro will push what users can do on a computer further than ever before.

A second-generation Apple Pencil magnetically attaches to iPad Pro and wirelessly charges at the same time. A new touch sensor built onto Apple Pencil detects taps, introducing an entirely new way to interact within apps. The new Smart Keyboard Folio features a streamlined design that’s adjustable for added versatility. The new iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio are available to order starting today and in stores starting Wednesday, November 7.

“The new iPad Pro is a huge step forward for powerful, creative, mobile computing; it has an all-new thinner design, speeds through projects with the super-fast A12X Bionic chip and unlocks with a glance using Face ID in any orientation — while you’re sitting or standing, with iPad Pro on your desk or lap, with the new Smart Keyboard Folio and new Apple Pencil,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “There has never been a mobile device anything like the new iPad Pro; it has a gorgeous edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display that curves into the corners, breakthrough performance that outperforms most laptops, Face ID, support for the new Smart Keyboard Folio and new Apple Pencil, advanced new cameras and sensors for the best AR experiences ever in any device, a high-speed USB-C connector, louder speakers, faster wireless and more, all packed into a thinner device that has all-day battery life and is 25 percent smaller in volume.”

Fully Featured Photoshop CC coming to the iPad

Share

At Adobe MAX 2018 in Los Angeles, Adobe previewed Photoshop CC on iPad, however, we were granted a preview in early October, along with other members of the press. Adobe were keen to stress this is not a version, it has all the signature features including layers with no practical limit. We were shown an example with 200 layers.

It is, of course, no real secret that Adobe has been working on a fully featured version of Photoshop for a while, a scaled back version for mobile devices has been available for sometime. However, while Photoshop CC on iPad shares the same underlying code as the desktop version, the interface has been reworked for mobile devices. It has a more streamlined layout and larger buttons and sliders for use with either a finger or stylus, though of course, with many of same tools as the desktop version it looks familiar.

Software – Capture One Pro: Top 10 Features You Should Know About

Share

Already popular with high-end imaging pros, Capture One is becoming increasingly popular with a much wider audience. Part of this could be the bundling with Sony mirrorless cameras or that, arguably, Capture One has better color and sharpness over Lightroom using the defaults. It may even be due to offering a choice between a subscription and traditional, perpetual licensing fee. Whatever the reasons for the growth in popularity, if you’re new to Capture One, there are several features you should know to help you improve your workflow.

If you’re thinking of switching to Capture One Pro, you can get a 10% discount on any of the Full Licenses and Styles, when you purchase directly from PhaseOne only. Simply enter the promo code AMBCARTER at checkout. Please note that the discount is not applicable to subscriptions.

‘Multilocalism’ – Portraits of London by Andy Smith

Share

As a part of Adobe’s ‘Visual Trend Multilocalism’, they are exploring how increased global consciousness and a yearning for authentic, local experiences are influencing visual culture. For photographer and Adobe Stock Premium contributor Andy Smith, Multilocalism is all about connections: “Multilocalism, to me, is the fact that there’s such a diverse group of people in one place, but that one place is connected through common interests.”

Smith’s home town, London, is exemplary of this diversity, as I can very well vouch. London welcomes millions of immigrants from all over Europe, Asia, North America, the Middle East, and beyond. The unique stories and customs these individuals bring weaves a robust mosaic of heritage and culture.

Smith was tasked Andy with capturing this vibrant scene in an exclusive photoshoot for Adobe Stock’s Premium collection.

Take a look at the results below…

Ultimately this is a show that’s as linguistically and visually disruptive than its surface might suggest. Post watching, you’ll feel steadier, more determined, strong and proud!

In this interview you’ll see how Elise Swopes, has made an entire, full time career from snapping pics with just her phone. Now, she works with major brands. Find out how Swopes went from creating Kid Pix on an old iMac to rapping at SXSW to 272K followers on Instagram. Haftel gets the inside info from Elise on location from NYC, next on Make It.

Mobile Photography & Art – My Top Five Apps by David Hayes from Milford, Ohio, United States

Share

We are revitalising our Top Five Apps section to our Photo App Lounge column. This a section within TheAppWhisperer where we ask highly accomplished mobile photographers and artists to list their top five apps and to explain why they have selected them. Kicking us off today is accomplished and highly respected mobile photographer and artist David Hayes from Milford, Ohio, United States.  Hayes used to be a major editor to TheAppWhisperer and we miss him very much, but viewing his photographs and reading his fine words, we can tell that his time away, has been very well spent. We hope one day he will return to us, he knows the door is held firmly open. For now, though, please familiarise yourselves with this wonderful author and artist’s work as follows… (foreword by Joanne Carter)

“Hello everyone! It’s been awhile since I had a chance to write for The AppWhisperer so I’m excited to have this chance to share with you my “Top Five Apps”!

When I wrote a regular column for The AppWhisperer I truly was an app junkie. If there was a new app I had to have it! In time my iPhone and iPad were filled with hundreds of apps…most of which I only used once or twice. Didn’t matter…had to have them! Now days I have slimmed this number down considerably so much so that picking 5 apps was easy. The quality and scope of apps today has increased dramatically as of late that one doesn’t need that many to be able to create dynamite images! My go-to-top-5-apps include Photoshop Express, Handy Photo, Stackables, Distressed FX, and Snapseed. Let’s go through my typical workflow to see how I might use each of these apps!”
