Adobe brings Photoshop Touch to Apple’s iPad for tablet-based artistry
MWC 2012: Having first introduced the touch-enabled photo editing suite to Android tablets, Adobe has now decided to bring the app to Apple’s iPad.
Adobe says that the new app, which is being showed off at MWC in Barcelona, will cost $9.99 (£6.99 in the UK) and will only be available to those owning an iPad 2 (there is no support for the iPad 1) from later today (Monday, February 27).
The app will allow users to work in image layers - as they would do on the desktop version - “scribble” over photos, and remove portions of work. Adobe adds that the app offers “sophisticated” selections tools, and will enable artists to touch-up photos, create new layouts and even share work with Facebook friends or to search for images via Google.
Adobe Photoshop Touch is one of many touch-friendly apps coming from Adobe in the near future, with the company planning to launch apps for Adobe Collage (for 'moodboards'), Adobe Debut (for presenting and reviewing creative work), Adobe Ideas (for sketching), and Adobe Kuler (for playing around with color themes) in the coming months.
Interestingly, there will be also be an app called Adobe Proto, which will enable website and mobile app prototyping. All of these apps are expected to come to iOS later in the year.
