Spotted: Photoshop Touch for the iPad!

Adobe Photoshop Touch

Trolling through my RSS treasure trove I came upon this juicy tidbit from Lifehacker. Now, I am totally intimidated and scared by the regular old photoshop ( I use it only to crop images or resize them. Anything else I tend to get frustrated and want to throw things) so I am just passing on this info.

Price: $9.99

Here is the product description from the website:

Combine images, apply professional effects, share results with friends and family through sites like Facebook, and more – all from the convenience of your iPad.

• Use popular Photoshop features designed for the tablet such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters to create mind-blowing images.
• Use your iPad camera to fill an area on a layer with the unique camera fill feature.
• Select part of an image to extract by scribbling with the Scribble Selection tool. With Refine Edge, use your fingertip to capture even hard-to-select image elements, like hair, with ease.
• Search and acquire images with the integrated Google Image Search.
• Share images on Facebook and view comments right within the app.
• Browse an inspirational gallery for the styles and results you’d like to achieve. Then follow step-by-step tutorials to easily learn techniques the pros use for great-looking results.
• Use AirPrint for wireless printing of Photoshop Touch projects.
• Upload projects to Adobe Creative Cloud* and open layered files from Adobe Photoshop Touch in Photoshop CS5.
• Maximum image resolution: 1600 x 1600 pixels

Reading the three customer reviews, the big problem seems to be the limited file size. Also the fact that it is not compatible with dropbox is mentioned. One of the reviewers mentions Photoforge which is only $0.99.

This might come in very handy with Mr. Scruton’s Grade 7 Photoshop Project…
