Scott Kelby Reveals His Favorite iPad Portfolio App

Scott Kelby is, as many of our readers will know a photographer, designer and award-winning author of more than 50 books. Most of these books are based on Photoshop and the reason for that is that Kelby is editor and publisher of Photoshop User and Layers magazines as wel as co-founder of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).

So it was with great interest when we came across an article on his blog declaring his love for the iPad Portfolio App FolioBook by Architek Limited.



In this article Kelby explains in seven steps why he loves it so much, he loves the custom splash screen and layout options, the freedom to have as many gallaries as you want, the facility to import images already on your iPad, or drectly from Dropbox and so much more.

You can read the full article over on the Scott Kelby blog, here.

If you would like to download this app, it retails for $12.99/£9.99

    Greetings Joanne,

    Once again I come late but delighted to have discovered this article and I am also surprised no one commented on something I feel is important to every photographer.

    With so many individuals using their smartphone these days as their camera, having a way to present ones favorite and best images I find is important but even more critical for photographers wanting to obtain a gig.

    Though I think iBook is the most practical way to go, FolioBook looks like it deserves a further and deeper look because of certain features.

    The days of carrying a portfolio of creating a slideshow and dropping off a CD at an art directors desk is way out of date, especially when the iPad was quickly excepted by various businesses. Since I still need to read Scott’s review, but if one can email FolioBook to an art director for viewing, it may just be the solution and a photographers dream come true.

    Thank you for all the hard work you do and for enlightening us on so many possibilities.

    Warmest regards,
