I need to create an avatar, based on a photo of me, to use in Facebook. I don’t want to use a normal image; I want to digitally manipulate it slightly. I can do the manipulation in the free iApp PhotoPad, but I needed to get the image to PhotoPad, which means getting it in the Photos app on my iPad.
Since I’m too lazy to connect my iPad to my Mac, I uploaded the image to my Photobucket account, and using the free Photobucket app, moved it to Saved Photos, which appeared, magically as an Album in my iPad’s Photos app.
According to Take Control‘s exceedingly savvy Tonya Engst on Twitter:
According to iPad manual and my testing, ebooks downloaded from the iBookstore ON the iPad do not transfer to iTunes.
Any confirmation? Work arounds?
I’m assuming that they’re backed up when iTunes does the iPad backup?
SideTrack, from Raging Menace, is driver software that enables Mac trackpads to accept a variety of “gestures,” similar to those standard on Windows trackpads. This ability strikes me as useful. I’m contemplating trying the beta out, but I’ll certainly keep an eye on it. Thanks to Eric for pointing SideTrack out.
