I don’t have any new images to share, but I have been posting several newly scanned 4x5s on my Facebook Fan page.  I hope to have new work to share next week, after I return from a short vacation.

It is now possible to view my PDF ebooks on iphone, ipod touch or ipad. If you have one of these ebooks, or are thinking of buying one, use Good Reader app to view. Excellent resolution. If you try this out, esp on an iPad, let me know how it looks!   Good Reader app

William Neill ebooks

I still hope to offer my ebooks as apps, but we have not found an app designer or a PDF conversion that will work on iTunes.  If anyone has ideas or recommendations, let me know!

Lastly, my next BetterPhoto course, Inspiring Nature Photography Essentails, starts on Wednesday April 7th.  Spaces are still available!

Cheers,  Bill

  1. Hi Bill. That is a beauty. It seems to me that drum scans of 4X5 film have a different color quality than digital photographs. There is a richness, subtlety and greater depth to the color somehow, wouldn’t you say?

  2. Good to know. I also read that converting PDFs to epub doesn’t work too well either now. I suppose there is a lot of room for improvement as far as photo books!

  3. Bill, I believe the iPad reads the ePub ebook format. I am not sure what software you used to create your books, but if it is InDesign CS4, I believe it can already export to ePub format. Then all a person needs to do is import that file to their iPad through iTunes, similar to how you would add a MP3 file.

    I don’t have my iPad yet, but certainly plan on exploring this myself a bit further when I do get one.
