Adobe Gives Photoshop Express a Touch Up

Photoshop Touch

Some of us use it for work, others just to craft memes for their favorite image boards, but one thing is for certain, Adobe Photoshop has easily become a staple of internet culture. Until recently iOS users have been forced to contend with Adobe’s Photoshop Express which, as I’m sure many of you know from their browser-based version, comes with an extremely limited toolset, missing features like multiple layers, advanced adjustments, filters and more. The complaints haven’t gone unnoticed. To provide a tablet alternative, Adobe recently released Photoshop Touch.

Photoshop Touch delivers many of those must-have features, such as layering, selection tools, while providing web-tools such as Google’s image search, and Facebook integration. The only major drawback that I’ve encountered so far was a max resolution of 1600 x 1600. For web applications, that’s not so bad, but if you’re planning on doing serious design work, you might take issue with that. That said, I’m not sure why anyone would be using a tablet for serious design work when the full version of Photoshop would be much better suited. Also, I’m not sure what more we could expect for just $10 — it’s safe to say the price probably justifies it. Right now the app is iOS exclusive, but Adobe plans on releasing an Android version in the near future.
