    How about Lightroom Touch with RAW support? ;)

    No support for the Nexus 7?

    Yes! finally, so happy and support for larger images, I’m not sure we need much more, it does a lot now, but I’ll let you know as workflows develop using the iPad, thanks for this!

    It’s a dim app, a nice adjunct to PS. But I would like to e able to work images that are still larger. Hopefully, the new iPad, next March, will allow you to do that. Not Rez wise, of course, as none of our desktop monitors can do that either. But 12MP is still under the size of most cameras today. I can’t use it with any of my current Canon D-SLR’s, for example, without first cropping, or down sampling. Not a good solution.

      Oops! Typo from writing on an iPad, while in in a moving car. How “fun” got changed to “dim”, I don’t know.
