NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) have just brought out the first paid issue of their new iPad based Lightroom Magazine. There is a free demo issue to look at. As with all NAPP product, it's very well produced and informative.

Why am I telling you this? Well before I'd even heard about the product, I got an email from Mike McKenzie from NAPP asking me to do an article on using Tiffen DFX. I've reviewed Tiffen here and liked it, as well as liking their iPad app. It has a bit of a learning curve and Mike asked me to do an article introducing the app and how to use it. So I put something together for them and it appears on pages 38-44 of the paid issue.


Of course the magazine isn't just about what I wrote, I'm just letting you know that I've something in there! The Editor in Chief of the magazine is none other than Matt Kloskowski, who, in addition, does a Before and After article, with video. Matt's other contribution is a set of Sports Game Day Presets. The magazine kicks off with Rob Sylvan showing us how to use Smart Collections. Next RC Concepcion talks about why DNG is for him. There's part 2 of the Book Module article from Scott Kelby (Part 1 is in the sample issue), while Seán Duggan takes is through some of his favourite tips and tricks. The final section is the 'Featured Photographer' section and in this issue, it's Nicole S. Young.

Like I’ve said it’s very slick, well laid out and quite readable, not to mention the beautiful photography throughout. At the very least, take a look at the free version to get a feel for the magazine. On the Android front, Light It Magazine has had a demo preview, and the intention is for all of the NAPP magazines to work on Android tablets. Note that because the issues contain video, they takes a little time to download. There are one star reviews on the app for this reason, but once the content comes down, then it is excellent.
