On Sunday, Adobe accidentally and prematurely released its Photoshop Touch app for the iPad 2, only to be quickly taken down from the App Store amid claims that the official launch date was Monday, February 27.
The Photoshop Touch is now available on the App Store, and you could now own a copy for yourself for $9.99. Currently, the Photoshop Touch is compatible with only the iPad 2 running on iOS 5.
The Photoshop Touch boast some impressive features including and not limited to the ability to work in layers, use “sophisticated” selection tools and “scribble” over images to remove unwanted portions. With the app, not only can the users perform simple touch up of photos but also combine images along with professional effects and share seamlessly on Facebook and other sharing means.
Adobe plans on launching a ‘suite’ of iPad Touch Apps, “Inspired by Adobe’s Creative Suite” and will include:
- Adobe Collage
- Adobe Debut presentation software
- Adobe Ideas (similar to Illustrator)
- Adobe Kuler (color theme manager)
- Adobe Proto (website-prototyping and wireframe tool)
