Photoshop Touch Applications on iPad

Adobe may not be quite ready to release Photoshop for iPad, but it has looked to the iPad for extra functionality when it comes to the latest version of Photoshop in Creative Suite 5.5. Three new iOS apps for the iPad have been released – Adobe Color Lava for Photoshop, Adobe Eazel for Photoshop and Adobe Nav for Photoshop – turning the Apple tablet into a remote control panel for the graphics software. Each uses Adobe’s new Touch SDK.

Adobe Color Lava handles custom color creation, using the tablet to make new swatches and themes that can then be pulled back into the main app. Adobe Eazel is basically finger-painting for grown-ups, with various software trickery to make your daubings look like real paint. Both apps work either directly linked to Photoshop or as standalone tools that can be later sync’d.

The Photoshop Touch SDK and a new scripting engine in Photoshop CS5 now opens the door for Android™, BlackBerry Tablet OS and iOS apps to drive and interact with Photoshop on the desktop. Adobe today also launched Creative Suite® 5.5, a significant mid-cycle release to the industry-leading design and development software for virtually every creative workflow across print, video, mobile and online media.

Pricing and Availability
Current Photoshop CS5 customers can experience the value of the connection to devices by downloading and installing a free patch available on or via the Adobe Application Manager, beginning May 3, 2011.
