Adobe Releases Photoshop Touch For Android And iOS Smartphones

Adobe is bringing its powerful Photoshop editing software to Android and iOS smartphones in the form of its Photoshop Touch software. This app, which sells for $4.99 on both the iTunes and Google Play stores, offers many of the Photoshop features users love in a mobile form.

With Photoshop Touch, you can combine images, apply effects, and share images with friends and family. Photoshop Touch for Android, iPhone, and iPod touch offers many of the same features as the tablet version including the ability to create layers, add graphical text, combine images, and more.

Other noteworthy features include selection tools, adjustments, filters, painting effects, and a Camera Fill feature. With the Scribble Selection tool, you'll be able to select part of an image to extract by scribbling. You can then use the selection to combine images together. Photoshop Touch supports images up to 12 megapixels.

The app comes with free membership to the Creative Cloud which includes 2GB of cloud storage. With this membership, you can start a project on your phone and finish it on another device such as your tablet or at your desk using Photoshop (assuming you own a Photoshop license for these other devices). Projects in the Creative Cloud are automatically synced between devices.
