Adobe Photoshop Touch now available for iPad

Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced that Adobe® Photoshop® Touch is now available for iPad 2, via the iTunes App Store. Adobe Photoshop Touch offers core Photoshop features, as well as new capabilities for creating and sharing in an app custom-built for tablets. The app is a central component of Adobe Touch Apps, a family of six intuitive touch screen applications, inspired by Adobe Creative Suite® software. iPad versions of the other Adobe Touch Apps are expected later this year.

Photoshop Touch gives users the ability to combine multiple photos into layered images, make essential edits and apply professional effects to create artwork, edit photos and more. The Scribble Selection Tool allows users to extract objects in an image by simply scribbling on what to keep, and then what to remove. With Refine Edge technology, hard-to-select areas with soft edges are captured when making selections. The app helps users find images and share creations through integration with Facebook and Google Image Search.

In addition to Photoshop Touch, Adobe expects to release the following touch apps for the iPad in the coming months: Adobe Collage for moodboards; Adobe Debut for presenting and reviewing creative work; Adobe Ideas for sketching; Adobe Kuler® for exploring color themes; and Adobe Proto for website and mobile app prototyping.

Adobe Photoshop Touch is available in the iTunes App Store for US$9.99.
