Adobe’s professional photo editing tool, Photoshop Touch, is finally available for smartphones at a price of $4.99. The app comes with an additional 2GB of storage on Adobe Cloud service so you can sync projects between various devices while saving valuable space on your phone.
Photoshop Touch has been available for iPad, Kindle, and Google’s Nexus but this version is designed for smaller screens. Having device specific editions allows Adobe to slightly diverge and offer varying experiences optimized for screen sizes and hardware advantages.
Much like the tablet version, Photoshop Touch on the phone has core Photoshop features like layers, advanced selections tools, adjustments and filters. We also packed in features exclusive to Photoshop Touch, like Scribble Selection for high-precision selections using only your finger, and Camera Fill for real-time creative blending of your camera feed with layers. This app features the same creative filters as the tablet version, like Color Drops and Acrylic Paint, and also a new Ripple filter.
If you’ve already purchased Photoshop Touch or Tablet, you’ll have to pay $4.99 to have this new app for your smartphone. Further, those with older smartphones will be disappointed to find out that this app only works with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and Android 4.0. Fifth generation iPod Touch are also compatible.
