Apple’s latest slate boasts a Retina display with an astounding 2048×1536 resolution, all powered by an A5X processor with quad-core graphics. But as impressive as those specs are, if Apple had stopped there, so too would the question I’ve turned over and over in my mind. Without the proper software, all that hardware’s useless, and tablets wouldn’t be any closer to replacing their desktop cousins. Fortunately, that fact wasn’t lost on Apple, and it debuted a mobile version of iPhoto, Mac’s popular photo-editing app, alongside the iPad. The combination’s potent, but how potent?
With DSLR (Canon 7D) in hand, I was determined to find out if the duo could save me the trip to my desktop.
Ibrahim includes several before-and-after shots that illustrate what iPhoto can do. Definitely check it out.
