Adobe delivers Photoshop Touch for iPad, Project Primetime

updated 01:05 am EST, Mon February 27, 2012

Photoshop Touch goes live for real

After a brief false start, Adobe has posted Photoshop Touch for the iPad 2 ($10, App Store). The finished app provides many of the requested creative features from the desktop version, such as layer editing and filters, while adding in elements that wouldn't be possible on the desktop. Artists can scribble or trace to select objects or even fill content with content from one of the iPad's cameras.

Internet awareness lets users run a Google Image Search for safe-to-use images, share projects on Facebook, or upload to Adobe's Creative Cloud for use later. The primary limitation of the iPad edition is one of memory: the 512MB of RAM on the iPad 2 caps images at 1600x1600.

Also launching at the same moment is Project Primetime, The video platform works across multiple mobile operating systems and streams video and protects it while also providing hooks for Auditude-based advertising and viewing analytics. Primetime Highlights is currently available for the iPad and shows off video editing with ads.

    Good to see Adobe refocused...

    rather than wasting their time on pushing flakey, insecure software like flash it is good to see them focusing on developing useful stable software....IMO.

    Great application, thou wasted -

    on a capacitive only tablet.
    What does Adobe expect of artists? get back to finger painting?

    If the iPad 3 has an inductive layer from Wacom, and the rumored larger retina display, this will be an instant hit amongst graphics pros,
    and make the graphic artists re-think leaving Apple for working devices.

    Stylus Arne

    There a many varieties of styluses (stylii??) from which you can choose... fine points including. And it is fairly easy to make your own...if you're so inclined.

    I will check this out, but am much more interested in an iPad version of Illustrator

    Where's IPTC support?

    I was really hoping Adobe's app would have full IPTC support (not just a caption field). I see that the app can send emails and to Facebook but what about FTP and SFTP, Dropbox, Twitter, etc? Is the editing destructive or non-destructive to the original? I'm a news photographer, I use Photogene2 on the iPhone when I want to send an image quickly. I'm not sure about this 1600x1600 cap in PS Touch but Photogene2 will allow me to send a full size image (a large JPEG from Canon 1D mk IV) or whatever is left after cropping.
