Photoshop Touch now available for smartphones

Adobe’s Photoshop Touch app for tablets is a great photo editing tool and now it’s available for handsets running iOS and Android, so you can polish up your snaps before sharing them online, or do something even more creative.

The app is packed with powerful features such as layers, selection tools, adjustments and filters, and there’s even a clever Camera Fill function which will let you use your device’s camera to fill an area on a layer. The app can handle images up to 12 megapixels in size and you get 2GB of free Adobe Creative Cloud space to store your pictures in.

The beauty of Creative Cloud is it will allow you to start working on a photo on one device, such as a tablet, switch to your phone and continue there, before firing up Photoshop on your PC or Mac and finishing things off. Of course you’ll need to own separate copies of Photoshop for the various different devices.

Speaking about the new app, Winston Hendrickson, Adobe's vice-president products, creative and media solutions said: “Mobile phones are increasingly becoming the primary tool for people to take and edit photos. Adobe is dedicated to serving our customers’ evolving creative workflow and we heard, loud and clear, that Photoshop fans wanted some core Adobe imaging magic on their smartphones.”

Photoshop Touch is available to download from the App Store or Google Play now, priced at a pretty reasonable $4.99.
