JUST IN – Adobe launches Photoshop for iPad

American software publisher Adobe has launched the iPad version of Adobe Photoshop, its popular graphics designing tool.

The company promised the release about a year ago but is doing well on Monday’s promise.

Adobe Photoshop Version 1.0 does not come with full desktop version features that people are familiar with, but rather focuses on editing and retouching images.

It includes selections, masking, painting, modes of blending and layers of adjustment. Just as the features are limited compared to the desktop version, the features in the right hand are sufficient to create something attractive, especially if you don’t want to move around with your desktop.

Adobe says each new release will add more Photoshop tools. And you can send design suggestions directly from the iPad application if you have something you’d like to see in the app. Nonetheless, the initial version still has a lot of useful functionality, so you’ll be able to get to work with it, just be mindful that you probably won’t have all you want right now.

As far as the Photoshop tools on the iPad are concerned, you will be able to use full PSD compatibility and a familiar interface from the Creative Cloud desktop app. For the iPad, however, the workspace has been retooled, so you can display the panels of simplified and informative layers as needed, just as an example.
