Kodak All-in-One is awesome asset in the digital darkroom

Man that sucker’s huge”, was my first thought as I unboxed Kodak’s new flag­ship All-In-One pho­to print­er. But that stands to rea­son, as the Kodak ESP 9250 All-in One Print­er (hence­forth known as ‘the 9250’ or ‘Kodak Unit’), does a lot more than just print.

And that’s why it’s so hard to write about these Swiss army knife com­put­ing appli­ances — there’s so much that you’d use reg­u­lar­ly (print­ing, scan­ning, copy­ing), and the oth­er things that you’d nev­er use.

So to be look­ing at pho­to cre­ation hard­ware from a com­pa­ny long asso­ci­at­ed with old-school film pho­tog­ra­phy was a treat. I was look­ing for (and found) a seri­ous ded­i­ca­tion to paper and ink that I’ve not seen often in oth­er makes of print­ers.

Here’s three of many pho­to apps I use most reg­u­lar­ly on my iPad — start­ing off with an offer­ing from Adobe, the Pho­to­shop peo­ple.

To illus­trate, I’ve used an image I cap­tured this morn­ing on my wife’s iPhone4, which I then uploaded to Flickr and then down­loaded to my iPad and processed. Con­tin­ue read­ing 3 Awe­some Pho­to apps for your iPad
