Adobe created Photoshop over 2 decades ago and it first appeared on the Apple mac computer. Photoshop has become the worlds best graphics editing software since then. After several iterations and enhancements, Photoshop has now transported and extended to the Apple iPad and Android tablet. Photoshop Touch is an all-purpose art and photo editing package for your tablet mobile device that can do what the main Photoshop does on a computer.
It offers text and color manipulation, layers, special effects filters like blurs, hue adjustments and masks. It also comes with companion apps such as Adobe Eazel, for the artist like me who wishes to create painting instantly in Photoshop on a tablet. Adobe Nav can do more with photos than any other app on the iPad, as it enables me to browse, view, zoom or re-order photos as I wish. I can access PSD files on a PC and bring them into the iPad and edit them as necessary with no hassle. And then I can use Adobe Color Lava to create custom colors, like swatches and themes for certain artworks I may make in succession or as a group. Creating great color schemes is part of being an artist, and inspiration can strike at any time!
The heart of any photo editing app or software is always the tools and ways that art can be created and arranged - and corrected if need be. On the iPad, Adobe have made it very easy to undo and redo actions, and enable artists and photographers to make use of the net and other PC devices like laptops. Color selection is easy and intuitive. Tools are applicable to whatever work you happen to do at any moment. The app gives you the tools automatically for that tasks. Applying effects to photos is extra easy. For photo work, no other application beats the feature set here. Adobe have provided more than enough features to tame any artistic beast!
Android users get the full Photoshop editing treatment with a version that works on all Android mobile tablets. This is what Photoshop looks like on an Android tablet. it has the very same features, tools and effects as the iPad version. And with the blurring of mobile phones and tablets into the strange sounding "phablets", such as the Samsung galaxy Note II, with its own stylus, it is only a matter of time that we would see Photoshop make its way to the phablet market. Adobe Photoshop Touch is available for under ten dollars on the Apple App store and Google Play for Android fans. If this is not a bargain, then I don't know what is. (Alan Mc Keogh)
