Entries in 2.0 (1)
We went in-depth in our review of Photosmith when it was released last year (be sure to read that review to find out more about what Photosmith does).
Version 2 brings with it a raft of new features including a re-designed UI and under-the-hood programming feats that make this app an absolute necessity if you use Lightroom and an iPad.
More about those new features in a moment, but first take a look at the new promo video below:
After being on the beta program for the first version of Photosmith last year we were very happy to be invited onto the beta program this time around too and we have to say this update is just what the (Lightroom) Doctor ordered.
Here's a rundown of those new features, many of which have been requested by users of Photosmith V1 (links in this list go to articles about that feature on the Photosmith website - well worth reading):
- Batch Tagging
- Batch Keywording (Yay!)
- Smart Groups
- Two-way sync with Lightroom!
- Choose which iPad albums to import
- Corrupt Image Protection
- Re-worked UI
- Sharing and Cloud storage enhancements including Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox and e-mail
- Native support for Export and Publish Services functions in Lightroom
- Direct integration (receiving photos) from Eye-Fi cards
- (and a new icon)
Photosmith 2 also has many speed enhancements and optimisations, which should be welcome news for any users of the 'original iPad' out there.
If you are at all interested in Photosmith, we would encourage you to follow the links in the list above and explore the website to read more about the new features and how the app works.
We will repeat what we said in our review of the original release of Photosmith just over a year ago, only with even more conviction this time:
"If you use Adobe Lightroom you need this app on your iPad. It's that simple."
To further whet your appetite for this app, we thought you might like to see some screenshots of Photosmith V2 in action.
Win a copy of Photosmith 2
Photosmith usually retails for $19.99 and we think that is a fair price for the functionality and workflow enhancement it offers Lightroom using Photographers.
But you can win one of 3 copies of Photosmith 2 in our upcoming giveaway. Check out this post for details of how to win.
