Adobe Photoshop Touch for iPad Launches

Adobe has launched a new iPad app called Adobe Photoshop Touch. The new app was announced last year and is already available on Android tablets.

The software brings certain elements of Photoshop to the iPad and allows for a number of features to be used and then exported to the full desktop version.

Features of the new $9.99 app include the following:

• Use popular Photoshop features designed for the tablet such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters to create mind-blowing images.
• Use your iPad camera to fill an area on a layer with the unique camera fill feature.
• 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.
• Search and acquire images with the integrated Google Image Search.
• Share images on Facebook and view comments right within the app.
• 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.
• Use AirPrint for wireless printing of Photoshop Touch projects.
• Upload projects to Adobe Creative Cloud* and open layered files from Adobe Photoshop Touch in Photoshop CS5.
• Maximum image resolution: 1600 x 1600 pixels
• Requires iPad 2 and iOS 5. Not available for iPad (first generation).

Note that the last line in the above quote mentions it is available for the iPad 2 only and not the 1st gen model. This will be due to performance issues and the original iPad just not having the power to run it smooth enough.

Available now from iTunes.
