Adobe Photoshop Touch Now Available For iOS And Android Smartphones
Adobe has this week launched a new version of its Adobe Photoshop Touch application which has been designed to specifically for smartphone devices.
To date, owners of Apple’s smartphones have had to be content with Photoshop Express, since the company’s Touch product had been limited to tablets, but now that’s all changed. Adobe Photoshop Touch is available right away for devices running iOS 6.0 and up, or Android 4.0 and up. There’s one notable caveat, support for the iPhone only stretches back to the iPhone 4S, though the fifth-generation iPod touch is covered.
Adobe is offering Photoshop Touch for the iPhone for $4.99. It includes the same features found in the iPad version of the app, including layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters. The app also comes bundled with access to Adobe Creative Cloud and 2GB of free storage. The Android variant is also priced at $4.99.
Adobe Photoshop Touch’s features are virtually identical features as Touch for tablets, yet shrunken down to pant pocket size. It can edit images as large as 12MP with layers.
There’s also a phone optimized version of Scribble Select that allows for precise selections and cropping even with a finger.
The Camera Fill feature lets users blend layers in real time using their camera as well as add textures.
