Adobe Demos Ideas for Photoshop for iPad

You can’t download Photoshop for your iPad yet, but the technology is getting close enough for Adobe Systems to begin showing what it’s got in mind.

CNET has a great post up that details recent demos given by Adobe, showing how their thinking is going on Photoshop for mobile devices – some specific to the iPad.

Mockups of iPad apps from Adobe included one of a companion app being used as a ‘palette’ for color selection and linked to Photoshop on a PC over a WiFi network. Even more exciting is the mockup shown above – which not only shows a good range of tools available, but also is said to be a ‘direct editing extension’ on the iPad. 


In one example, a person could paint–with multitouch fingerpaints–directly on the image, with changes being reflected on the computer screen. Multitouch also could be useful for distorting an image–in the mock-ups, expanding a model’s nose to an unflattering bulbous shape.

Photoshop is a flagship application for Adobe and an absolute essential for many designers and artists. It will surely be a huge hit on the iPad whenever either or both of the demoed apps make their way to the App Store.

For lots more detail on this, see CNET’s post here:

  1. I don't know if it's a smart business move to develop for a platform trying to kill your stranglehold on interactive online media, but it's definitely worth some brownie points when you do it for free.
