Adobe Releases a Trio of Photoshop Apps for the iPad
Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 10:13 AM
"Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the immediate availability of the Adobe® Photoshop® Touch apps - Adobe Color Lava, Adobe Eazel and Adobe Nav - for Apple iPad in the Apple App Store. These three apps from Adobe were developed using the Photoshop Touch Software Development Kit (SDK) to demonstrate the potential for new interaction between Photoshop and tablet devices."
Adobe Nav for Photoshop [affiliate link], Adobe Eazel for Photoshop [affiliate link] and Adobe Color Lava for Photoshop [affiliate link] are all available now in iTunes for $1.99 USD, $4.99 USD and $2.99 USD respectively. These three apps really add a new aspect to Photoshop on the iPad. With Color Lava you use your fingertips to mix colors on the iPad and transfer them back to Photoshop, creating your own color swatches and themes. With Eazel, it lets you create paintings using just your fingers, and with Nav you control the Photoshop tools using the iPad touch surface. This is obviously a very simplistic explanation, but suffice to say, having these three tools sure adds to the capability of the iPad and Photoshop as a great photography tool combo.
