Retina display support, higher-rez image capacity, more
Adobe has updated its mobile photo-editing app Photoshop Touch to version 1.3, bringing Retina display support for the new iPad and new support for print-resolution images up to 12 megapixels with up to 16 layers. In addition, the program adds two new effects, a new three-finger tap, support for Apple's Photo Stream and overall smother performance in the organizer, tutorial browser and file picker. There is also a new "pixel nudging" mode for more precise movements.
The new three-finger tap gesture will work to toggle between 100 percent view and "fit screen" view, while the two new effects added are called "Shred" and "Colorize." As mentioned, the program now supports images up to 12MP (only 10MP on the iPad 2), but users will need to change to the higher capacity in preferences, as the default value is still set to a limit of 4.2MP with 10 layers.
The program costs $10 and is available from the iOS App Store or Google Play for the Android version. Both versions are designed to work only on tablets, not smartphones.
