Transform your photos like never before with Photoshop Touch for iPad


The correct title would be "for iPad 2+"... Won't download on iPad 1st gen, says it needs a camera to install. Adobe trolled me :(

The first gen iPad isn't really up the task. It really has nothing to do with the camera as much as the rest of the hardware limitations.

From the article: "It’s important to note that Photoshop Touch requires an iPad 2 and iOS 5."

Yes, especially since it only supports a maximum image resolution of 1600 x 1600 pixels ... I think this restriction makes the app useless.

I bought it in Canada right before the article went up (how I took the photo for the article :) )

Dang it. I just realized that this is for the iPad only...not the wonder I couldn't find it! :-)

i'd consider buying it only and only if this thing had RAW support so i wouldn't have to bring my laptop on trips and could load raw images into my ipad from camera directly and then process them into jpegs for web/sharing purposes. to putz around jpegs into jpegs, this app is a waste. i'm sure people will justify it and buy it anyways. and btw, there are already other alternatives that do process raw files on ipad, so this app is a little late and possibly a lot underwhelming.

I've seen people mention PhotoRaw on photo forums. I haven't personally tried it yet, but if and when I'm in the market, I'll probably default to it than this new app from adobe.

So will the app actually work on iPad3 or not? Adobe dropped the ball by not supporting ipad first generation. Apple did the same thing with imovie.. which was stupid since now there's an icloud and cloud services.. If Apple can port Garageband to both all ipads and the iphone..than this PS Touch should be able to run on all IOS Devices.

@ Rene - any idea when a vector/publishing app by Adobe will become available, for making stuff like flyers? Do you think they will make one and just "iPad-ize" an existing product or create a new brand? I would love to manipulate that sort of thing on my iPad, but could do with some templates/help.
Thanks! :)
ps - I know you can't predict the future, I'd just love some educated guesses
