Adobe releases Photoshop Touch for iPad 2

Adobe has this morning released the iOS version of Photoshop Touch, after a bit of a hiccup over the weekend when it was briefly released and then withdrawn again in short order. Yours for £6.99, it’s for iPad 2 only - clearly a bit too much for the original iPad. Containing some core Photoshop features as well as new tablet-specific features, it’s described by Adobe as being right for anyone – amateur, enthusiast or professional – who wants to edit photos on a tablet.

That is, if you were somehow expecting the full-blown Photoshop experience on your iPad then you’re going to be disappointed. There’s a bit of a focus on sharing and friends and Facebook about the whole enterprise that, we reckon, places Touch more at the Elements end of the scale. The most telling restriction, as far as most professional designers will be concerned, is the maximum image resolution. At 1600 x 1600 pixels you won’t be using it to create enormous full-bleed images, but once you get past that you’ll find a decently featured app that integrates right into Adobe’s Creative Cloud.

So, what can you do with it? Here’s Adobe’s Russell Brown with an overview:
