At the Mobile World Congress, Adobe has announced that Adobe Photoshop Touch is available for the iPad 2, via the iTunes App Store. Adobe Photoshop Touch offers core Photoshop features, as well as new capabilities for creating and sharing in an app custom-built for tablets. The app is a central component of Adobe Touch Apps, a family of six intuitive touch screen applications, inspired by Adobe Creative Suite software. iPad versions of the other Adobe Touch Apps are expected later this year.
Photoshop Touch gives users the ability to combine multiple photos into layered images, make essential edits and apply professional effects to create beautiful artwork, touch up photos, paint, lay out ideas and much more. The Scribble Selection Tool allows users to easily extract objects in an image by simply scribbling on what to keep, and then what to remove. With Refine Edge technology from Photoshop, even hard-to-select areas with soft edges are easily captured when making selections. Photoshop Touch helps users quickly find images and share creations through integration with Facebook and Google Image Search.
‚Photoshop Touch combines the magic of Photoshop and its core features with the convenience of a tablet, bringing image-editing power to the fingertips of millions of people,‚ said David Wadhwani, senior vice president and general manager, Digital Media Business Unit, Adobe.
‚Adobe Photoshop Touch offers a huge convenience factor and boasts Photoshop features tailored for the iPad,‚ said Brian Yap, creative director, Boxing Clever.
‚I love the organic process of working on the tablet. With Adobe Photoshop Touch, I have a new form of image creation with familiar tools but in a more relaxed work space, allowing me to rediscover image making through play rather than production,‚ Dan Marcolina, owner, Marcolina Design & Marcolina Slate.
‚My team and I put Photoshop Touch through the paces and it shines as a tool for on-the-go photo shoots,‚ said Tyler Stableford, photographer and director, Tyler Stableford Photography + Film. ‚Time is always critical when taking pictures during the golden hours of light. With a wireless connection, the art director and I can place photos, immediately as we take them, into a layer with the client’s artwork. This is really helpful when shooting catalog covers.‚
In addition to Photoshop Touch, Adobe expects to release the following touch apps for the iPad in the coming months: Adobe Collagefor moodboards: Adobe Debut for presenting and reviewing creative work: Adobe Ideas for sketching: Adobe Kuler for exploring color themes: and Adobe Proto for website and mobile app prototyping.
