Some time ago, I posted about Adobe revealing Photoshop Touch for iPad (Android version was released much earlier). You can visit the original post here:
As you know from the previous post, Photoshop Touch is only available for iPad2 (and the new one coming out soon) and Android Honeycomb tablets.
The features in both applications (for both platforms) are the same, and there are the same limitations, i.e. you can only work on images that are no more than 1600px x 1600px.
From what I have heard from people using Photoshop Touch on both platforms, the same response kept coming back to me…
People say that the experience of using Photoshop Touch was much better on higher resolution Android tablets than on an iPad2, which to start with has a 4×3 ratio (and people found it frustrating) and the resolution of only 1024px on the longer side (many Android tablets have higher resolution). Here’s one of the quotes:
” Photoshop Touch felt a lot less cramped than it does on the squarer 4:3 aspect ratio 9.7-inch panel of the iPad 2.”
On the other hand, some people were saying that Photoshop Touch was a bit “more responsive” on iPad than on Android.
When done working on images, files are saved as .psdx files and uploaded to Creative Cloud. Then, the same files can easily be imported into Photoshop CS5 and you can keep on working on the files! How cool is that?!
I will be looking more in-depth at Photoshop Touch in the near future and will give you an update. I think it is a very interesting application that can do quite a lot, and it has a very nice price tag – £6.99 ($9.99).
Let me know what you think and remember… Enjoy! 😉
