Adobe Photoshop Express 1.5 for iPhone and iPad released.
Adobe has pushed out a new version of Photoshop Express for iOS, v1.5, which promises support for the iPhone 4′s Retina Display, multitasking in iOS 4.2, and in-app photo taking using the iPhone and iPod touch’s camera. Thefree download[iTunes link] comes in iPhone and iPad versions, and supports basic editing – including crop, straighten, rotate and flip – together with effects and filters.
Thanks to the multitasking support it’s now possible to queue uploads to Photoshop.com and Facebook while using the iOS device for something else. Effects include Vibrant, Pop, Border, Vignette Blur, Warm Vintage, Rainbow, White Glow, and Soft Black and White, while there are optional Rectangle, Rounded, Oval, Soft Edge, Vignette, Rough Edge, Halftone, and Film Emulsion borders.
While all these apps work very well they have limited functionality, as heavy-duty image editors require lots of processing power. Hopefully, Adobe will combine all the features available in separate apps. The new found processing power of tablets can only help in making this possible.
