I recently got this ipad 5 from Argos, to try out and share my top app’s to help blogging on the move and streamline my technology while traveling. I already had a snazzy little Eye-fi memory card that  Dave brought me, it enables me to take photos on my Canon DLSR and send them across to my iphone or ipad via wifi. This has been great fun with the iphone and instagram but will be even better with the ipad, it’ll mean blogging on the move will become truly easy and no more lugging my heavy laptop around when we go away.


Now I’ve got the pictures on my ipad air, how do I edit them? I’ve downloaded the best photo-editing apps I could find and with Dave’s recommendation’s ;-).


Lightroom – out of the photo editing app’s I think Lightroom is the best for editing most like the Mac/Computer version, you can edit your pictures in-depth by changing the white balance, exposure, contrast, highlights & shadows. You can also add washes over the images and crop if needed  – it’s a pretty damn good app! ipad_034_001ipad

After Light – lets you put washes on your photographs like instagram does, it also lets you change brightness, exposure and highlights like Lightroom but not as in-depth… But where I do think After Light shines is with the washes, there are loads to choose from and it also has fun edits like Light leaks and Instant Film which can give your images a vintage film look. Another fun feature is adding boarders, silhouettes and type, this is where you can turn your image into a square for uploading to instagram.


As I blog using wordpress, that was one of the first app’s I downloaded. I do find it much easier to write up blog posts on my laptop compared to the ipad  but the app version is great for checking stats, replying to comments or quick changes to content.


App’s I use to edit, blog and share my posts –

Lightroom WordPress After Light Eye-fi -I use an Eye-fi memory card in my camera and can send the images across wifi to iphone or ipad – Paper 53 – is a fun little drawing app that I’ve used in the past for creating written scribbles, like above – Twitter – Instagram  Facebook –

ipad_053ipad_03ipad_043_0imageipad_001_01ipad_050ipad_046I picked up this ipad sleeve from Herschel, it’s fleece lined and fully padded to protect my new toy. It’s from Urban Industry, it’s the first thing I’ve brought from them – I guess it’s more of a boy’s site but I do love a good camouflage print and I couldn’t find any cases from my usual favorite stores. All in all I’m pretty happy with this case and inside it has red & white stripped lining which is a cute little feature.

    the new device is really nice…I’m glad you enjoy it. I tried blogging on an iPod and had a horrid experience. I’m glad you had such a lovely time. Your dog is sweet. http://clclewis801.wordpress.com/

    Very informative and entertaining post. I love my iPad too, though eventually one does manage to overload the photo storage to the point that the new iOS download is not possible. That’s when I sent all my photos to the iCloud whence they dutifully show up in my laptop to be filed and organized with the rest. Then, of course, when I need just that right image, I have to wait for the man to be done with whatever it is he does with the laptop. It is, though, a good little system.
