Photosmith for iPad Receives Top Photo App Honors from TIPA
C Squared Enterprises today announced Photosmith for iPad has received the Best Mobile Photo App award from the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).
"As photographers ourselves, it is a great honor to be recognized by international professionals who value innovation," said Chris Horne, co-developer of Photosmith. "We are thrilled to join the company of Canon, Sony, Nikon, Manfrotto, Olympus and others recognized as the best photo and imaging products."
The TIPA Awards are renowned as the most influential photo and imaging product awards in markets around the world. TIPA's members represent 28 leading photo and imaging magazines from 15 countries on five continents, and also has a cooperative partnership with the Camera Journal Press Club, representing 11 top photography magazines in Japan.
To celebrate and enable even more photographers and creative professionals to join the company's fast-growing user community, Photosmith is conducting a limited-time price reduction of its revolutionary photography app for iPad. Photosmith can now be purchased for only $9.99 USD (or equivalent local currency). This is half-off Photosmith's regular price.
Photosmith is the only iOS app that synchronizes photos and IPTC metadata like keywords and star ratings with Adobe's Lightroom software for Mac/PC through a local Wi-Fi connection - sync occurs directly between Lightroom on the Mac/PC and iPad. This is important because photos synced through local W-Fi transfer much faster than cloud-based services. Local sync also doesn't require an Internet connection. With local sync, your photos, keywords and other IPTC metadata remains safely stored on your devices, and never transferred over the public Internet for storage on a remote server.
Photosmith recently added best-in-class support for full-resolution rendering of camera raw files. This native camera raw rendering unlocks the raw formats of over 500 camera models, including many unreadable by Apple's iOS, including Leica's DNG and FujiFilm's RAF formats.
"We want more people to realize what the imaging professionals at TIPA, as well as the casual enthusiast have come to recognize - Photosmith can really transform their digital photography workflow," said Horne. "This limited-time discount is the same price as one month of other Lightroom sync products for iOS - but Photosmith doesn't require an ongoing subscription fee."
Photosmith is the culmination of countless nights and weekends, developing an app by a very small team of avid photographers and software engineers. "We created the iPad app we wish existed - something that complements the power of managing digital assets in Lightroom, with the portability of Apple's iPad," said Chris Morse, co-developer. "We're unique in that Photosmith was created and is maintained by photographers, for photographers."
