Adobe Photoshop is a graphics-editing program that has been widely used by businesses, graphic designers, journalists, photographers and artists. It has revolutionized the way users are able to manipulate images.
Adobe has managed to take its program one step further by offering it for less than $5 for iPhone and Android users.
“Mobile phones are increasingly becoming the primary tool for people to take and edit photos,” said Adobe vice president of products, Winston Hendrickson. “Adobe is dedicated to serving our customers’ evolving creative workflow and we heard, loud and clear, that Photoshop fans wanted some core Adobe imaging magic on their smartphones.”
The new application, Photoshop Touch, will have all of the core capabilities as the traditional software. The app will also let users take advantage of their camera phones, add special effects and share their creations to social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and other platforms.
Photoshop Touch will be integrated with Adobe Creative cloud, which gives users up to 2GB of free storage. In addition, users will be able to enhance images using layers, selection tools, filters, tonal and color adjustments and other effects – and add graphical text, edit images up to 12 megapixels, and use Scribble Selection which allows multiple images to be combined.
“With Photoshop Touch and the Adobe Creative Cloud, I can start a project on my phone, continued it on my tablet, and polish it off at my desk in Photoshop CS6,” said Photoshop’s Stephen Nielson. “Photoshop Touch will automatically keep my projects in sync on each device, at the full resolution and with all of the layers intact.”
The new application debuted previously for tablet users back in October 2011 and was introduced on the iPad about a year ago. Now, Photoshop Touch will be able to run the program on all Apple devices running iOS versions 6.0 and higher, or Android devices 4.0 or higher.
