    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to i-pads and to this forum, so looking for help and understanding.

    My main interest is in photography and since retiring in 2010, I have done nothing else but this. Reaching our 50th wedding anniversary this March, so lots of holidays planned.

    Thanks Gabriel,
    as mentioned, I am new to this and only bought my i-pad 4 64Gb 4G on Friday. Have been looking at android and apple information for a couple of weeks and finally decided on apple from what I had read and others were saying. Have a couple of books and am keen to learn. It will help me put my photographs on the pad for display rather than carry around loads of printed portfolios, but have not yet looked at the possible ways of doing this to get the best type of display like some of the good web sites have. Possibly some Apps for this to be found.

    Looking forward to being in the Forum.
    Alex

    If you use the IPF App (the link is in my post above) go into profile and tap the avatar and you can upload a new one from there.....

    There are lots of photo apps and if you ask a question in the General Discussion area I'm sure that you will get a lot of good advice.

    Hi JA and others saying welcome. My late Father was called JA by his employees many years ago.

    Just getting used to this i-pad stuff and a bit late in life, but it keeps the old grey cells charged. Will be looking around for inspiration.

    I have a Neice (Tanja) living in Vienna and went to her wedding last June and her parents live near Kiel in Germany, but he originates from Vienna also.
