Adobe released today its second Adobe Touch app for the iPad - after Adobe Ideas, this time its Photoshop. Android users have access to four more apps - Collage, Debut, Kuler and Proto - but these are expected to hit the App Store with the launch of Creative Suite 6 and Creative Cloud.
Adobe Photoshop Touch is not as advanced as the desktop version but it still has many useful features. It allows to combine images, apply professional effects, share results with friends and family through sites like Facebook, and more.
Here is the list of features and highlights (via App Store):
- Use popular Photoshop features designed for the tablet such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters to create mind-blowing images.
- Use your iPad camera to fill an area on a layer with the unique camera fill feature.
- Select part of an image to extract by scribbling with the Scribble Selection tool. With Refine Edge, use your fingertip to capture even hard-to-select image elements, like hair, with ease.
- Search and acquire images with the integrated Google Image Search.
- Share images on Facebook and view comments right within the app.
- Browse an inspirational gallery for the styles and results you'd like to achieve. Then follow step-by-step tutorials to easily learn techniques the pros use for great-looking results.
- Use AirPrint for wireless printing of Photoshop Touch projects.
- Upload projects to Adobe Creative Cloud* and open layered files from Adobe Photoshop Touch in Photoshop CS5.
- Maximum image resolution: 1600 x 1600 pixels
The new product is only compatible with iPad 2 with iOS5. No luck for users of the first generation of iPads.
Adobe Photoshop Touch is priced $9.99 and you can get it here.
