A new site called Imgembed aims to address all those challenges by offering image embedding services very similar to what’s availabe for videos.
For the traveling photographer—or anyone who shoots in the field—the release of the iPad offered the possibility of a much lighter, easier field kit. Unfortunately, for the first few years of the iPad’s existence, the software did not exist to facilitate a pro-level workflow.
