Adobe has finally released its long-awaited Photoshop Touch for iPad 2. The photo editing tool for Apple’s popular tablet costs a reasonable $9.99 and is available for download now on the App Store. (Link to app.)Some of the most used features on the fully-fledged Mac tool have made their way across; using layers and Scribble Selection to name two. Check the list of features below:
“â€¢ Use popular Photoshop features designed for the tablet such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters to create mind-blowing images.
â€¢ Use your iPad camera to fill an area on a layer with the unique camera fill feature.
â€¢ Select part of an image to extract by scribbling with the Scribble Selection tool. With Refine Edge, use your fingertip to capture even hard-to-select image elements, like hair, with ease.
â€¢ Search and acquire images with the integrated Google Image Search.
â€¢ Share images on Facebook and view comments right within the app.
â€¢ Browse an inspirational gallery for the styles and results you’d like to achieve. Then follow step-by-step tutorials to easily learn techniques the pros use for great-looking results.
â€¢ Use AirPrint for wireless printing of Photoshop Touch projects.
â€¢ Upload projects to Adobe Creative Cloud* and open layered files from Adobe Photoshop Touch in Photoshop CS5.
â€¢ Maximum image resolution: 1600 x 1600 pixels”
Interestingly, the maximum pixel resolution is 1600 x 1600, which is perfectly fine for the iPad 2′s 768 x 1024 resolution display. However, I’m curious to see if the maximum resolution is upped for the rumored 1536 x 2048 display on the upcoming iPad 3. Plus, if the next tablet’s camera really is 8MP, its images will be a much higher quality than the current version meaning that – unless converted – its standardÂ 3264 x 2448 pixel photos will be too much for Photoshop. Food for thought.
