Adobe has officially released Photoshop Touch for iPad 2. The release came after AdobeÂ accidentally pulled the trigger on Saturday, then removed the app from the App Store.
The new version of the app, which was previously released on Android, features many of the same features that have been tailored to work better on Appleâ€™s tablet.
Photoshop Touch, inspired by itsÂ Creative Suite for Mac and PC,Â Â is the first of six apps for tablets that Adobe will be releasing under its Adobe Touch Apps collection. The apps, expected to be released later this year include Adobe CollageÂ for moodboards,Â Adobe DebutÂ for presenting and reviewing creative work,Â Adobe IdeasÂ for sketching,Â Adobe KulerÂ for exploring colour themes andÂ Adobe ProtoÂ for website and mobile app prototyping.
While this app isn’t a full version of Photoshop made for tablet, it does offer some of the same tricks. This includesÂ combining multiple photos into layered images, performing simple edits, extracting objects from images using the Scribble Selection Tool as well as all of the basics like painting, touching up and layering arrangements. It also integrates with Google image search and Facebook for easy importing and sharing of images.
In addition, the app has a lot of features that take advantage of the iPad 2’s camera, sensors and touch screen with some mimicing the functions of Photoshop with othersÂ using the tabletâ€™s capabilities to expand on what you can do. One of theseÂ Â is the camera fill effect, with which you can use a flashlight to effectively â€˜re-lightâ€™ a scene.
David Wadhwani, the SVP of Adobeâ€™sÂ Digital Media Business Unit says thatÂ Â â€œPhotoshop 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.â€
Photoshop Touch is available from the iTunes Store.
