iPad 2 Currently review activities on a construction site using an old fasioned pen and notepad whilst taking photos with a digital camera. Following a walkaround I then download images to HD resize the images to reduce image size and then import photos into a word template typing out my hand written notes. Presently depending on how far away from home the construction site is I use a day to travel and walkaround the site and then the following day typing up what notes I have taken and importing photos. I need to make this process more streamlined and efficient. Therfore I would like to: - - Purchase iPad 2 and rugged iPad case. - Recreate my report template in Pages to mimic the word template (company logo, colours etc) I can use our own MacBook for this. - Take the iPad around site using this to take the photos but typing my notes even if they are shorthand directly into the template. Doing the above I will return from site with a report already started and approx. 40% complete, I would just need to expand on the notes taken and select the photos for each section of the report. The only problem is I do not have an iPad nor access to one so I do not know how feasible the above is hence my post here. Questions: 1.) Do you foresee any issues with the above? 2.) Whilst I understand the camera on the iPad is not brilliant what typically are the sizes of each image? I can take 50 - 60 pictures each visit. Would a 16GB iPad suffice providing that the previous report and images were purged from the iPad prior to the next report or should I go with the 32GB. 3.) With the report compiled and ready to issue on the iPad can I save the report within Pages to a PDF format? Outside of the iPad the company is very MS Windows / MS Office centric, my work issued laptop is a Windows one so having a Pages file will be useless to email around. 4.) Within MS Word my template currently has what is called a 'picture content control' box for each image. Its basically a placeholder for the image and when you click within it a dialogue box pops up asking you to select the image. The image is then brought into the document at the desired size and place within the report. Does Pages have the same feature for image control? Your advise would be gratefully appreciated. Mike.
