C2 Enterprises has released a new app designed to help iPad users collect and organize photos on the go, share content on social media services and sync the resulting collections to Adobe Lightroom. Photosmith provides the ability to organize, rate, tag and label photos imported from sources such as the iPad Camera Connection Kit and includes support for JPEG and Canon & Nikon RAW files. Users can view detailed EXIF information such as ISO and shutter speed and set titles, captions, descriptions and IPTC metadata. Photos can be viewed at full 100% zoom to check detail and the app supports sharing photos via Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox or e-mail in various resolutions.
A free Lightroom plug-in allows users to transfer photos from their iPad to Lightroom via Wi-Fi and sync collections, keywords, ratings, labels, EXIF and IPTC information in the process. Photos can also be imported using the standard iPad USB for better performance with metadata subsequently synced to Lightroom via Wi-Fi. Changes made in Lightroom are also synchronized back to the iPad and Lightroom keywords are automatically transferred to the iPad so they can be easily applied while on the go. Photosmith requires an iPad running iOS 4.2 or later and is available from the App Store for $18.
