Photoshop on the iPad
Adobe announced that its Photoshop Touch is now available for iPad 2 which indicates a thawing between the two companies who have been chatting through clenched teeth.
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. 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 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.
It is one of the few applications we can see a point having on a tablet to do some work away from the PC. However we doubt the iPad has the memory to do some of the more serious photoshoping. Still it is nice that Apple and Adobe are working together a bit more after spending the last couple of years smacking each other with handbags.
