  1. Jeff, I may have missed your comments on this, but the attached exchange (http://www.imore.com/ios-8-kills-iphoto-messy-transition-photos) echo some of the frustration and unhappiness I share with the demise of iPhoto for iPad. I too was sucked into the iOS 8 photo conversion without realizing I would lose all of my earlier creations/Jounals content as well as the ability to share out links to the creations. IMHO, the editing tools of iPhoto for iPad far exceeded the “upgraded” iPhoto app of iOS 8. I find the whole workflow from edit/creation/sharing now to be very cumbersome and a backward step. Are you aware of any apps that would provide an alternative to the native iPhoto in terms of edit/creation/sharing. Your comments would be welcomed. This might make a good subject for a future article? Hal

  6. […] Jeff Carlson, author of The Photographer’s Guide to Luminar 4 and Take Control of Your Digital Photos suggests “the product you’re creating is not the camera, the lens or a webcam’s clever industrial design. It’s the subject, you, which is just one part of the entire image they see. You want that image to convey quality, not convenience.” […]
