Adobe has launched the Photoshop Touch app for smartphones, letting iPhone and Android users employ touch-based gestures for image design and manipulation on the go.

 
The app will let users enhance images with classic Photoshop features like layers, selection tools, filters, and tonal and colour adjustments. Effects and graphical text can be added, and images can be combined quickly using Scribble Selection, or refined using the Refine Edge tool.
 
Photos up to 12 megapixels can be edited with the app, which should cover pretty much every smartphone out there. Adobe is also offering 2GB of free storage on its Creative Cloud, which can automatically sync images for use on a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

“Mobile phones are increasingly becoming the primary tool for people to take and edit photos,” said Winston Hendrickson, VP of  products at the Creative Media Solutions division of Adobe. “Adobe is dedicated to serving our customers’ evolving creative workflow and we heard, loud and clear, that Photoshop fans wanted some core Adobe imaging magic on their smartphones.”
 
The new version of Photoshop Touch is available now in the Apple App Store and Google Play for $4.99. The app will work for the iPhone 4S and iPod 5th generation on iOS 5 and above, and Android 4.0 and above.
