| p.1 #12 · best way to view photos on ipad retina |
I've been thinking about a retina ipad as well. For just display purposes (after PP work on computer), what is the best resolution for ipad jpgs?
Obviously I could crop and resize to the native resolution of the screen, but then I'd like to be able to zoom in as well and maintain detail on the images, so wondering what the recommendations are.
Not to hijack your thread but seemed a good fit
I have a D800 and haven't tested it yet, but I did load up my iPad3 with Retina with several photos I have taken with my D700. They were all full rez jpgs, with somewhat light compression in PS (I think probably around a jpg slider setting of 8). They look REALLY REALLY nice for display on my iPad. People are very impressed when they see the iPad displaying these photos. And, people can pinch zoom a bit and they still look great.
I'm definitely looking forward to trying the same with my D800 files. However, the jpgs from it are so large after lightroom/ps work that I think they'll take up too much room. So, I may try some fullsize versions and some versions resized to around D700 size and compare to see if they look any different when viewing (obviously, both output sizes are larger than the iPad's native resolution of 2048x1536).
You will be very happy with the iPad for display purposes. I can't speak to how it works for raw files as I usually bring a small laptop with me on trips anyway, so I use that.
