Well the other day I installed the latest Photosmith the Adobe Lightroom companion for the iPad. I also updated the Lightroom plug-in to 1.0.10.
Caroline had been shooting some macro shots of flowers and local wildlife (mainly Damsel Flies, and Toads), so I borrowed her compact flash card to test the update.
I am please to report that it worked perfectly. I imported the photos, keyworded a few. Added some location information to one, and rated them and colour rated them.
I then tested the sync, and wirelessly imported them back into Lightroom. I then made a few changes, sync’ed common information across all the photos and resync’ed again.
This information was then transferred back to the iPad. During the day in spare moments I continued to update the metadata and keyword information on the iPad, and at the end of the day sync’ed again.
I am pleased to report PhotoSmith worked perfectly and can be well recommended. Now we are just waiting for the batch syncing of metadata, and for me the killer feature, two way sync of photos, so I can take a shoot from the Laptop to the iPad, do some work then sync back.
