I think I understand that a dmg file works with a mac operating system and not an iOS but I am still wondering if any inventive soul has worked unwrapping one of these in an iPad? I have my first iPad mini and miss iphoto and imovie and such. The dmg was not from the app store so cant do it from there.

Thanks

There are iPhoto and iMovie apps available for iOS. Just open the store on your iPAd and search for "iPhoto" or "iMovie".
You will have to buy them additionally though. As these are not linked with your iPhoto and iMovie applications on your Mac.

That said, they are not exactly 100% the same neither. But it is possible to edit photo's or movies on your iPad with them.

You're basically talking about two different operating systems, those OSX apps cannot and will not run on an iPad. But you're in luck apple has released iOS versions of both, in fact iPhoto is quite powerful on the iOS platform.

Get Splashtop. :D That way you can just remote access iLife from the iPad.
That's terrible advice.

iLife is available on the iPad, from the App Store. It's only 5 dollars (each) for iMovie, iPhoto, and Garageband.

And why? Maybe he wants access to the Mac version of the apps? I prefer them to the iPad versions myself.
I have gotomypc to remote into my computer on my iPad. I don't think that's a feasible alternative for the OP trying to use iPhoto/iMovie.
