Adobe Ports Photoshop Touch to Android and iOS Smartphones

Need advanced photo editing while on the go? Then Adobe’s Photoshop “for Phone” might just be what you’re looking for. It’s based on “Photoshop Touch”, which has been available for iPads and Android tablets for some time, but is customized to better suit smaller screens. It also happens to cost half as much, at $4.99.

Like the tablet version, the phone version offers “core” Photoshop tools found on the desktop, like advanced selection tools, filters, layers and so forth. There are a number of fun filters that are also included, like Color Drops, Ripple and Acrylic Paint.

The app makes good use of Adobe Creative Cloud, so you’d be free to make some edits on your phone and then finish the photo at home (using CS 6, of course), or vice versa. The nice thing about this service is that the files are left in tact, so the full PSD will operate just the same on either the phone or desktop.

As mentioned above, Photoshop Touch for Phone is priced at $4.99, and it’s available for both iOS and Android devices.

    Photo editing is an activity demanding so much precision and it is so much time consuming, I find it a bit hard to believe this tool can be of any use to anyone. I suppose someone wishing just to add some quick and dirty filters to their photos. But they are bound to find cheaper alternatives, no?

      For someone who just wants to add some flair to their photos, yes, there are numerous alternatives that are a bit cheaper. This is just good for those who want to make more advanced edits, easily. I think the examples in the images above are a little ridiculous, as few people are going to use this for serious editing, but I can see it widely being used by those who just took a picture while on the go and wanted to make some quick edits before uploading it to Facebook or something.
