Good news for photographers and artists on the go: Adobe has managed to squeeze its Photoshop app into iPhones and Android devices.
"Mobile phones are increasingly becoming the primary tool for people to take and edit photos.
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," it quoted Adobe vice president of products Winston Hendrickson as saying.
Among the main features of the app are:
• ability to enhance images using layers, selection tools, filters, tonal and color adjustments
• other effects and add graphical text.
• users can edit images up to 12 megapixels using layers
• a Scribble Selection feature allows multiple images to be brought together as one
Also, the app is integrated with Adobe Creative cloud, which allows 2GB of free storage. Photoshop Touch debuted on tablets running Android in October 2011, and was introduced on the iPad in February 2012, and to Kindle devices in November.
Its latest tablet version, 1.4, had support for the iPad mini and Google Nexus 7, and was optimized for smaller tablet displays.
Photoshop Touch can run on Apple devices with iOS versions 6.0 and up, or Android 4.0 and up. However, The Next Web noted support for the iPhone only goes back to the iPhone 4S. It can also run on the fifth-generation iPod touch. — TJD, GMA News
