As a photographer one of the things I was most looking forward to doing on my iPad was browsing flickr and other photo sites.
Unfortunately safari seems to re-compress the images it displays (to save memory?) and the resulting JPEG artifacts are so distracting that it's not even worth looking at my contacts photos until I'm back on my laptop.
To reproduce this just go to flickr on your normal computer and on the iPad and compare some images - it's a pretty big difference.
I can't see any settings for image quality anywhere. Is there anything I can do.
I've just been playing with the camera (on the new iPad) and theres something I've noticed. Is it just me or is the iPad's video recording function much better quality than the still images are? For me the images when the video is paused look much sharper and the video itself is very very smooth whereas when I take stills the camera is very jerky.
I got an IPad as a gift and started to use it... My happiness last one hour as after that on my eyes the screen started to show picture in green color and as if you watch TV with bad antenna. I would be happy to get this device back to the store, but there's a small issue. I'm located in Russia and to send it back to the store would be not easy. I wonder if I'm the only unlucky man with such a problem and are there any ideas if it is hardware or software problem. I assume it looks like bad connection between screen and main board...
Import of images using the camera kitUse the drop box to backup photos onlineThe problem is that when I connect a camera to iPad and import photos, the software only import small versions of the originals. If a jpg image is 3mb, the imported version is a version of 1 / 10 part of the quality (size).Trouble is: I can not import images in full quality to my Ipad using the original camera kit.
Using updated 3.2.2 os, Win 7, iTunes 9.2, I sync photos to iPad. On iPad after sync, some pic icons appear scrambled, with what appears as several pics mixed together. When the icon is scrambled, the picture is often scrambled as well, but not always I have 1500+pics on iPad. Is there a way to prevent this, or reset the data base? Anyone else hear of this problem?
Hi all, just one hurdle before committing to the ipad.When I transfer pics to my itouch, the picture quality is downgraded (or it looks to me that way).Does the ipad do the same?Is it possible to transfer directly from iphoto to ipad or would it have to go via itunes?
I've been reading here that some are disappointed with their new Ipad for whatever reason ( no file system, no flash, no camera...etc). Some even returned it right away!The thing is only 2 months old and the update is a couple of months away that will address a lot of this- Not all, I know (flash, camera). My question is, don't you think that it's fair to say that within a short period of time, after the developers have had it for awhile the whole thing will get better and most issues will be addressed.
Having owned an iPad since Christmas and being very impressed overall, I find that the only real area where it is very poor is with the email product. I do not want an IMAP email, I already have an email domain and would love to be able to manage emails properly. I get about 120 emails per day of which maybe 90 are junk. Outlook copes with almost all of these by filtering them into a junk folder. The rest I manage into folders relating to my work/personal life.On the ipad, all these emails just drop into an inbox making email a very nasty experience.It is actually the only thing that is stopping me from ditching my netbook altogether. I sit here with a corporate PC that I have to use, my ipad and my netbook. My netbook is doing nothing but managing emails.Apple- will you be producing a 21st century email product soon? Outlook has been managing my emails in this way for ten+ years, surely you guys can produce something in your lunch hour that will allow folder management and junk mail management? Oh, and the ability to delete emails from the inbox.
I looked over the iPad manual (actually downloaded to iBooks for easy reference, which is highly recommended), but I can't find how to improve some maneuvering in long documents. I know how to get to the top really fast, but I can't find a way to quickly scroll through massive amounts of pages. The single swipe is pretty slow. If there's a large web page (I read long science articles online), sometimes I just want to skip to the conclusion, which could be 50 pages down. It takes about 50 swipes to get there.I think I'm missing a technique, like in OSX, where you can click on the bar on the right and move fast through pages to get to where you want. Or, like tapping to get to the top, is there a tap to get to the bottom? I might be missing the right page in the iPad manual for using my fingers correctly.
It has been reported by many that their batteries appear to be draining much more quickly on their devices since iOS4.3 came out. I also found the thread talking about a potential fix from MacRumor member SomeDudeAsking. It appears to have helped mine. If you didn't see it, his recommendations were as follows
1. Goto Settings => General => Restrictions => Activate Restrictions
Once you activate restrictions you'll see a list of allowable icons. Turn off Ping. Apple integrated Ping deep into iOS 4.3 and is turned on by default. It uses push notifications so it is always running and using data even if you don't use Ping.
2. There was a suggestion that in General => Reset => Reset Network Settings would help.
So, have any of you used these suggestions? Did they help?
