Recommendation for iPad iOS7 basic image editor

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Liam O'Connor, Mar 10, 2014.

  1. What basic photo & video freeware editor do you use on iOS7 iPad?

    On Windows, I make basic photo edits (cropping, color balance,
    panorama, etc) with IrfanView freeware, and I make more extensive
    photo editing (cutting, pasting, changing colors, etc.) with
    Paint.NET freeware (among others, such as The GIMP). For the most
    basic of video edits (mostly trimming), I use the default Movie Maker.

    On Linux, I use KolourPaint freeware for the basic photo stuff, and
    The GIMP (among others) for more extensive photo modifications.
    I don't edit much video, but Cinelerra works for freeware video edits
    (mostly just trimming the ends).

    But what do you use on iPad for equivalent freeware photo & video editing?

    since you have a new ipad, get iphoto.

    there are other options but the better ones aren't free.

    There are plenty of free photo editing options for the iPad, most are a
    variation of each other, and some are a complete waste of time. So I
    have two suggestions:
    Snapseed (free)
    < https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/snapseed/id439438619?mt=8 >
    I know you are looking for free, just remember that for the most part
    with *free* you get what you pay for. Snapseed id exceptional in that
    it is a NIK product provided free by Google. There is also reasonable
    support online.
    < https://support.google.com/snapseed/#topic=3110872 >

    ....and if you want a truly powerful photo image editor step up and pay
    for Adobe Photoshop Touch ($9.99) there is no better for any tablet.
    There are also a whole bunch of tutorials & good support available for
    it.
    < https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adobe-photoshop-touch/id495716481?mt=8 >

    For video on iPad, or iPhone (& I suspect Android) you shouldn't have
    to go further than Videon ($4.99).

  4. iPhoto is a very good basic photo editing app. It's free.

    Strange, if I access iPhoto via the App Store I find that Apple wants $4.99.

    it's free for those who bought an ipad or iphone after september 1,
    2013, which original poster has done.

    Honestly, iPhoto is one of the best.
    iMovie.

    Ah ha! That explains it, my 64GB iPad 2 is doing just fine.

    Sorry, I though it was part of the free bundle that was offered with
    iOS 7 and new iOS devices.

    Apparently, I am viewing the world through the narrow window of a happy
    iPad 2 user, who has no current need to upgrade to a new iPad. So I
    guess in some way we were both right.

    The iPhoto on my iPad is NOT the same as the one on my old iPad nor on my
    laptop. I assumed it came with the new iPad. ??

    You can do quite a bit with the current iPhoto on the new iPad, I've
    discovered.

    it's definitely different than what's on your laptop.

    it might be different than what you had on your previous ipad,
    depending on what version that was.

    Thank you! I was beginning to think it was my imagination :cool:

    Yes, it's very different than what's on the old iPad, which is still next
    to my chair here, because the whole clump of new map apps iOS 7 uses STILL
    can't give me what the old Maps can. I use it, then grab the results to
    mail to myself to add to "albums" of trip prep stuff.

    You have Apples version of Google Maps on your old iPad, while the new
    iPads come with Apples Maps application, which doesn't return as much or as
    good results as Google Maps.

    The solution? Download Google Maps to your new iPad - it's free and works
    beautifully on your iPad.

    Oh, it's much better than the sorry Applemaps, but it still lacks decent
    bookmarking, some map style choices, and a decent, easy to use Street View
    all in one app. i have googlemaps, google earth(which at least allows me
    access to "My Places", which I can modify on my laptop), another app with
    more usable transit directions, and VERY limited "multi-tasking" on the
    iPad even in its newest incarnation. All except the access to "my Places"
    is in a single easy to use app, Maps, on my neolithic iPad, which, by the
    way, also allows me more control over the locations associated with my
    contacts.

    Huh? You can "star", i.e. bookmark, any location.
    Huh? Not sure what you mean here,it has satellite view and map view - same
    as the old Google Maps app on your old iPad. Unless you mean hybrid view
    which is a mashup of the two? But Google Maps satellite view already
    overlays some information, so it's about the same.
    What's "undecent" and hard to use with the street view in the current
    Google Maps app? Works as advertised if you ask me
    Sounds to me it's about the same... You can bookmark, see map/satellite
    view and you have street view.
    Not sure what kind of control you're after in a map app...

    And it takes 3-4 clicks through from the map to find them, all lumped
    together with anything I've looked at briefly, instead of a single
    pull-down menu from my current map,where I can choose bookmarks, contacts,
    or recent hunts by a little finger movement.
    No contour.
    Again several clicks to access what seems to be more limited when it
    exists, instead of a single click on a corner of the screen.
    And I have to use multiple apps for anything else.
    Original Maps control. Only Google Earth gives me a couple options beyond
    that, and I had that before as well.

    I'm assuming you're only doing this when pressed for time and out jogging?
    :)
    What does that mean?
    So two clicks is "undecent" and one is "decent". Sounds weird to me.
    But that "anything else" isn't included in the Apple version of Google Maps
    on your original iPad, though.
    I thought you talked about control over your contacts?
