We first heard about new photo editor (opens in new tab) Photoshop Fix last month, when it was demoed at an Apple event (opens in new tab). Unfortunately for Adobe, that announcement was largely drowned out in the mainstream media by a fuss over the allegedly sexist nature of the demo (opens in new tab).

But today Adobe is hoping everyone will focus instead on how cool its latest photo app (opens in new tab) is, as it releases the free app to the world to mark the start of its yearly Adobe Max conference.
Photoshop Fix is available to download for free today (opens in new tab). But what exactly does it do?
In short, Photoshop Fix offers a retouching and restoration-focused image editing experience on iPad and iPhone (as ever, Android support is "coming soon").
It's got a simple, intuitive touch interface that makes well-known Photoshop desktop features, like the Healing Brush and Liquify, available for retouching work on mobile.
So how is it different from the already-existing free mobile app, Photoshop Mix?
"Photoshop Fix is a retouch app and Photoshop Mix is about making composites," explains Mala Sharma, Adobe's vice-president, Creative Cloud (opens in new tab) business strategy.
"So you could start with an image, touch it up, take it to Photoshop Mix, edit it and bring it into a composition that modifies it significantly; then bring it back to Photoshop Fix if you wanted to or take it to Photoshop desktop and do more."
So now you know. Photoshop Fix may not be a full version of Photoshop on mobile, but it's still a pretty cool app that harnesses some of the full-fat software's retouching capabilities. And you can either use as a standalone app, in conjunction with Mix, in conjunction with the desktop version of Photoshop, or a combination of these.
If you do decide to download it and give it a try, be sure to tell us what you think about it in the comments.
Meanwhile, we're here at Adobe Max all this week. So keep an eye on Creative Bloq for all the latest news and announcements from Adobe.
