Still not a toy, but also still not a fully successor of the personal computer no. How come there's nothing in between for you? I can still do some photo editing on my iPad, but I can't replace my mac with it. That's unthinkable for me and will probably always be until all my needs that requires my mac to be online 24/7 can be done in the cloud.

About the retina MB Air: second that!

I agree these people are clearly idiots. If you are that serious about photo editing you'd be a fool to be using your iPad!

I don't understand what the point of this app is. If I'm editing on my iPhone/iPad, I'm doing with pics I've taken with those devices. I use Snapseed, Hipstamtic and Instagram for those purpose.

My DSLR photography is handled by LR/PS combo. When I edit those, it goes to iPhoto simply as a means to display and sync to my iDevices.

WTF? Does he NEED a reason to shoot at 24mp? Why is iPad wasting memory space to go up to Retina display? Only in the world of Apple would something like this be said - justifying the limitations of Apple by making every other choice invalid. Just because Apple doesn't allow it, doesn't mean everything else has to follow their standard. The church of Apple, I swear to God. Or should I say Jobs.

Exactly. Keep in mind this isn't meant for professionals. The hardware ain't there yet. Also keep in mind it's the first version of the software. I'm sure future versions will advance. Apple's kinda know for that too.

19MP and no RAW limitation on new iPad? Snapseed on iPad 2 does it today

To all who state this limitation is obvious. My current setup while traveling is 5DMK II (21MP), cf reader for iPad and Snapseed for editing. I backup photos and view on iPad 2, Snapseed for editing and then either create real postcards with a 3rd App (Sweden only forthright one I use) or as more common use Wordpress for blogging with images. This allows me to leave laptops at home while on vacation which is great.

iPhoto looks great but a lot of other DSLR users will not be able to use it. And no, I am not a professional.

True, and as many have said, the only thing that's really important for "pros" is Raw support...with the Adobe software--Photoshop Touch.

People will demystify its insides soon, and we all can't wait for Blendtec to turn it into hot goo.

Quad core is a step in the right direction, but for hungry apps, the biggest limitation is certainly Ram. 1GB is nowhere near enough for professional applications in photo/video land.

This is what Curves was made for--Physically bending contrast/color etc. to your will. Sure as hell beats click and drag.

The iPad3 as a controller for Photoshop on an MBP/iMac rather than an all out replacement, I'd settle for that.

As I explained it would be nice to do some work while on the road and not to bring the laptop.

Snapseed just accepts 16MP images.

As for RAW, how does Snapseed handles it? Does it creates a JPEG version of the photo?

Snapseed accepts larger than 16MP, but downsamples when saving. You can in other words open photos shot by e.g. 5D MK II and work with them but scales down (unless you haven't cropped away pixels enough already). No additional JPEG is created, that said the RAW conversion is rather basic and not in the same league as e.g. Aperture or Lightroom.

That worked pretty well for me! I like a lot of the of the features (especially Photo Journals, almost replaces MobileMe galleries). I hope they bring over a lot of these changes to iPhoto on the Mac. If so I'll dust off my Magic Trackpad and give it a go!

Or how 'bout using the iPad as the display (with it's 478,000,000,000,000 pixels) for editing with the Book/Mac...?

I'd rather use a 30" retina iMac.

if I were to add a caption to a Photo Stream photo, would it transfer to the same photo on the Photo Stream on my computer's iPhoto? I'm trying to find a better way to organize the photos on my Photo Stream using my iPhone.
