Post process

I am looking to start post processing as i would like to shoot raw more often.
Currently my only computing device is an ipad4 , sometimes i connect this to an old Sony flarscreen tv.
I was wondering if anyone has experience using an ipad 4 with lightroom, is this a viable setup?

Also are these new(ish) 4 k tv screens as good as a moniter or is there a particular specification which is better .

I really think you at the very least need a laptop. It will make life so much easier and you can then use the pentax software provided for the camera, or maybe Lightroom or Photoshop Elements.
Best regards, John

Photo editing on a touchscreen is likely to be frustrating I suspect .... at least if you want to use anything but a basic, touchscreen dedicated programme. There's always going to be the need for quite fine control, especially once you start to look at selective working, and then a mouse and keyboard make a big difference. The relatively small screen size of an iPad will be limiting as well I think .

While Lightroom for ipad is quite limited in comparison to it's big brother; it is actually doable. I have edited quite a few photos when on the go. I personally don't find the touch controls an issue. While I won't argue that a PC is more suitable for the job; if it's not an option for whatever reason, one can make a tablet work and chances are, the results will be better than what you camera can produce by default, which I believe is the intent here. Either way; just give it a shot. Get a trial of the software, flip the switch and have a play. You will know best if it suits you or not. Just my 2 cents

I tend to connect my ipad to my tv for viewing imsges. I may give the photoshop/lightroom package a chance as their is a 1 month free trial.

I am particularly attracted to lightroom as i believe images can be manipulated in "batch" .
I am unaware of any such program (free) which offers this feature.

I use an iPad mini 2 along with Lightroom for editing when I don't have my MacBook with me and find it fairly doable. I haven't yet however figured out how to do a batch edit on Lightroom mobile. What I have noticed and this Particularly true on iPad mini is that the images are not as sharp as they look once exported.
