Adobe Photoshop Touch for iPad Hits the App Store

Adobe has released their much-anticipated Photoshop Touch for iPad 2, available now via the iTunes App Store ($9.99, App Store link). Photoshop Touch allows you to use many of Photoshop’s core features, such as layers, filters, and selection tools, and also include new capabilities for creating and sharing in an app custom-built for tablets.

From the press release:

Photoshop Touch gives users the ability to combine multiple photos into layered images, make essential edits and apply professional effects to create beautiful artwork, touch up photos, paint, lay out ideas and much more. The Scribble Selection Tool allows users to easily extract objects in an image by simply scribbling on what to keep, and then what to remove. With Refine Edge technology from Photoshop, even hard-to-select areas with soft edges are easily captured when making selections…

Besides the standard core features of Photoshop, the app also includes AirPrint support, Facebook integration for viewing comments right inside the app, and more. It also comes with a number of built-in tutorials to help you get started right away.

Unfortunately for original iPad owners, Photoshop Touch is only for the iPad 2. It also has certain limitations, such as a maximum image resolution of 1600 x 1600. Photoshop Touch is available immediately for $9.99 from the App Store ($0.99, App Store link).
