Adobe Photoshop Touch Review - very nice app

Adobe Touch Apps family


Adobe recently released a host of Adobe TouchApps - Photoshop Touch, Ideas, Collage, Debut, Kuler, Proto, and Carousel. Design, edit, and elegantly present your work using six new Adobe® Touch Apps designed for your tablet. Whether you use a stylus or just your fingertip, intuitive touchscreen features provide easy, precise control for a variety of creative tasks. Transfer files through Adobe Creative Cloud for refinement in Adobe Creative Suite® software — or to view, access, and share from almost anywhere.


I have been using Adobe Photoshop Touch for the last couple of weeks on a loaned iPad and a friend has it on his Android tablet. The Photoshop Touch app lets you quickly combine images, apply professional effects, share the results with friends and family through social networking sites like Facebook, and more. If you have used Photoshop, the Touch app will be a breeze for you. If you haven't used Photoshop, don't worry, the Touch app is easy to use, has interactive tutorials, and there are tons of help resources on Adobe's site and for educators on the Adobe Education Exchange, which is a resource site for educators who use Adobe products. Tips, instruction guides, videos, a community of users, lesson examples and much more are all available to help teachers and students using Adobe products.




Adobe's new Creative Cloud/Suite 6 for Students and Educators integrates the Photoshop Touch app so that you can work on your projects seamlessly from mobile to desktop. 


 


The Photoshop Touch app was very easy to learn and get started with. I did use some of the tutorials, and had read a few posts on the education exchange site, but it was very intuitive. Features include layers, effects, filters, tone and edge editing, text, search for images, share images, wireless printing, and much more. The tools are all, literally at your fingertips on the app. Because it's not the full version of Photoshop, it's easier to find the tools that you use the most. It is probably the best image editing app for tablets around and still has all the really important and useful features from the full version of Photoshop. It's easy to bring in an image, edit and manipulate it, and the save it. It's only $9.99, which is super cheap for Photoshop and the Education Volume app store has it for $4.99, which makes it very affordable for education.

I had some fun playing with different pictures I took with the iPad, although the quality of them wasn't great using the iPad's camera, so I also brought in some other pictures and graphics files to play with. It was very easy to clean up images and there is even a gallery of styles and effects that you can look at and then see a step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve those effects.


This is a great app for education. It's inexpensive, easy to use, full featured, and a tool that students should learn to use as it will help them in college and careers.
