iPads have advanced to the point where they can do most things a full computer can do. Certain things, like photography and photo editing, are still better left to a computer. But if you’re a photo hound and want to give up your laptop forever, it’s not impossible to make the switch. Here’s what to do. To offload photos directly from your camera, Apple’s accessories – like the iPad Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to SD Card Reader – will let you move photos directly onto your iPad. Storing them can be tough, though, even if you shell out for a top-of-the-line 128 GB iPad. To keep all that data organized – and keep free space on your tablet for apps and other documents – cloud services like Dropbox or Amazon Cloud Drive can do the trick, as can home-based cloud networks and networked attached storage devices. Finally, photo editing will always be better on a computer, but apps like iPhoto and Adobe Photoshop Touch offer decent options for touching up your photos.
