Adobe releases Photoshop Touch for iPad


Adobe has released an iPad version of Photoshop Touch, the cut-down version of its industry-standard image editing package for tablets, four months after the app’s original Android release.

Part of Adobe’s new family of Touch Apps, Photoshop Touch includes core features from its parent product plus some more finger-friendly edge detection and ‘scribble selection’ tools.

Layers, filters and adjustments are all supported to a greater or lesser extent, the latter via some rather satisfyingly chunky curve controls.

More controversially, image-resolution is capped at a mere 1,600 x 1,600 pixels – although given the iPad’s legendarily low-res built-in camera, this should only be an issue for imported images.

The new version of Photoshop Touch comes in at the same price as its Android precursor, at $9.99. However, owners of first-generation iPads are still out of luck: it requires iOS 5, so you’ll need an iPad 2.
