Adobe Launches Photoshop Companion Apps for iPad. In April, accompanying the launch of Photoshop Touch SDK, Adobe announced three Photoshop CS5 companion apps for the iPad. Lot of users were impressed with the functionality that could be attained by using a tablet and were left wondering when they could use the apps themselves.
Well now the time has come, and Adobe has released the Adobe Photoshop apps that they demonstrated at the Photoshop World conference. While the three apps won’t be replacing Adobe Photoshop CS5 on your desktop, they serve to add a whole new level of interaction to the whole Photoshop experience instead.
Adobe Color Lava costs $2.99. It lets users mix colors on the iPad using their fingers. Users can also create color swatches and themes that can be transferred into Photoshop or shared with friends directly from the app.
Adobe Nav costs $1.99. It gives users the ability to control Photoshop tools on the iPad through a customizable toolbar as well as browse through open Photoshop files and create new ones.
Adobe Eazel is the most expensive app in this bunch at $4.99. It lets users create realistic paintings with their fingertips. The paintings can be transferred via Wi-Fi back to Photoshop or shared with friends.
The app stand out from the other apps out there – it is by Adobe after all, the company that makes industry-standard software for creating artwork. Work from the tablet can then be sent over to the desktop version of Adobe Photoshop CS5 to be edited and further touched up.
