The iPad has taken the world by storm and has increasingly become a useful addition to a digital photography workflow. Join Terry White, worldwide Creative Suite Design Evangelist for Adobe Systems, as he walks through the various iPad apps he uses in each stage of his photographic workflow. Whether you are planning a shoot, transferring photos to your iPad while shooting, reviewing your photos after a shoot, editing your photos, signing releases, or showing your finished work, there is an app for that and Terry knows which ones are the best.

Video transcripts available with a subscription.

Terry introduces the concepts covered in the class and jumps right in with a review of apps to use before you shoot.
An Eye-Fi card is an SD memory card with a built-in Wi-Fi chip, and there are a number of apps you can use with the Eye-Fi card to transfer and review your photos on your iPad.
There are a couple of other hardware and software solutions for shooting tethered with an iPad that don't require an SD memory card slot.
You can transfer your photos to your iPad with Apple's Camera Connection kit for basic reviewing with the default photo app, but if you are a Lightroom user there is another app you can use to speed up your workflow. Terry wraps up this segment with a look at a cool app for wirelessly transferring photos between your iPad and another device.
There are tons of apps for editing on your iPad, and Terry walks you through some of the best.
From model releases to portfolio presentation and output, Terry covers a number of apps to help you complete the last phase of your workflow.

    AS of the end of 2014, this course is significantly dated with products that are no longer available and irrespective products currently available. Will you make an updated version?

    The DSLR Remote is no longer available for shooting wired. What else do you recommend? I looked into Capture Pilot but wont work on older versions of windows.

    The mention of tether -fly can be updated such that it no longer went into production. It was replaced by CamRanger, ( which can wirelessly control the camera as well as import photos into the iPad. It is its own ad-hoc network as well.. I have no financial connection with the company, but purchased it when Tether Tools refunded my money for the preorder of TetherFly.

    Terry, Thank you for sharing your knowledge and thoughts through the great course – Using the iPad in Your Photography Workflow. I learned a lot and suspect significant improvements will be available to photographers in the near future as Apps and the interfacing components evolve. Since this is such a rapidly evolving field, I sincerely hope that you are provided the opportunity to do this again in the not to distant future. Thanks again! —- Yes, please post my feedback
