Adobe Photoshop Touch for iPad


Adobe Systems Incorporated yesterday announced the immediate availability of the Adobe Photoshop Touch apps – Adobe Color Lava, Adobe Eazel and Adobe Nav – for Apple iPad in the Apple App Store. These three apps from Adobe were developed using the Photoshop Touch Software Development Kit (SDK) to demonstrate the potential for new interaction between Photoshop and tablet devices.

You can use your fingertips to mix colours on your iPad’s screen with Adobe Color Lava, use some of the most popular Photoshop editing tools on your tablet device with the Adobe Nav app; and the Adobe Eazel app is designed for digital artists who want to create paintings on their iPads. You can also transfer images, colour swatches and themes you create back into Photoshop.

These applications take advantage of the iPad’s touch screen for a truly immersive, tactile, on-the-go experience, and expand upon inroads made by Adobe in the mobile and tablet market initiated with Photoshop Express, Adobe Ideas and Adobe Connect Mobile. Current Photoshop CS5 owners can download a free update to enable new interaction between Photoshop and tablet devices.

The Photoshop Touch SDK makes development possible on numerous devices, including iOS, Android and BlackBerry PlayBook. Utilizing the SDK, developers will have wide access to Photoshop functionality with the freedom to innovate and create new apps or add capabilities to existing ones. Adobe has already engaged with a number of developers to incorporate tablets and other devices into creative workflows that empower Photoshop users in new and groundbreaking ways.

Pricing for the applications is US$ 4.99 for Adobe Eazel, US$ 2.99 for Adobe Color Lava and US$ 1.99 for Adobe Nav. cameratown.com, ephotozine.com
