Photoshop Touch Apps Finally Landing on Tablets
Adobe Photoshop finally jumps on board the tablet express.
It was a long wait, but it was all worth it. Adobe has finally jumped on board the realm of tablets, as it unveils the first three Photoshop Touch apps for the medium: Eazle, Color Lava and Nav. The apps are heading to the iPad sometime in May, so rack up your creative juices as you prepare for Adobe Photoshop on the iPad.
But this isn’t precisely the Adobe Photoshop CS5 that we’re using on our PCs per se. Instead, this is Photoshop Touch Software Development Kit (SDK). Photoshop Touch SDK allows third-party applications to communicate with the Adobe Photoshop CS5 on the PC at real time. This means you can turn your iPads (and soon Honeycomb tablets) into a control surface to edit images.
Check out the short descriptions of the Photoshop apps:
Adobe Eazle: A drawing app which allows you to create paintings and control color, opacity, and brush size. It has the technology of mixing wet and dry paint for color blending, and possesses an engine which allows paint to dry over time. It’s like painting in real-life, except it’s on the tablet!
Adobe Nav: A navigation app which extends Adobe Photoshop’s control and menu bars from the workspace to the iPad display.
Adobe Color Lava: A color mixing palette on your very own tablet. Match colors or create your own color palette which you can later sync with your Adobe Photoshop.
Looks like it won’t be long now until Adobe finally brings the entire package to the tablet. The Adobe Photoshop Touch SDK is one giant leap in bringing the powerful editing tool in all its glory, beyond the confines of desktops and laptops.View Article Source »
