Chapter Markers for the Image Correction Master Class Videos, for iPad and Downloads …

Photograph © George A. Jardine

These chapter markers have been integrated into the new iPad downloads that are available by just mailing a request to me at georgej@gmail.com. Once you’ve downloaded the video files, you will also find that you can use these chapter markers in iTunes, or in the Quicktime Movie Player application. If you’re using iTunes or an iPad, you’ll also find that you can beam the videos directly to your AppleTV using Airplay, which—in my book—is by far the best way to watch them. :-)

You can also use these timecodes as a way to jump to the spot you want to watch in the online Flash UI, but please be patient. It takes a moment for the server to catch up each time you click, even on a very fast connection. If you have an HTML5-compatible browser, you may have better luck hitting various time markers with the HTML5 video interface, because it’s a bit more responsive. You’ll find the link to the HTML5 series on your purchase confirmation page.
