Adobe Photoshop Touch Now Available for Smartphones


This morning, Adobe released Photoshop Touch for iOS and Android smartphones. Previously only available for tablets, Adobe was able to shrink this powerful program down into a smaller-display friendly app and slap a $5 price tag on it. Much like the tablet version, Photoshop Touch brings countless editing features right to those gorgeous fingers of yours. 

  • Enhance images using popular Photoshop features such as layers, selection tools, filters, tonal and color adjustments
  • Apply effects and add graphical text for endless creative possibilities
  • Edit images as large as 12 megapixels with layers
  • Combine images together quickly using the Scribble Selection feature, and easily refine your selection with the Refine Edge tool
  • Automatically sync images to Adobe Creative Cloud™ with free 2GB of storage

It is live on Google Play for phones running Android 4.0+, so go pick it up and start making some pretty art for us to use on our weekly recap posts.

Play Link ($4.99)

    Boy, that performance looks sluggish…

    My Galaxy Note 10.1 says no thanks.. I’ve already got Adobe PS from stock.

    Google Play: not for Nexus 10!

  • Runs pretty nice on my galaxy nexus, made a couple quick shops to test and they turned out okay. Really easy to use.

    Does anyone know if this app or the one for the tablet has the ability to compress/reduce photo sizes?

    the first photoshop mobile was crap, not going to spend $5 to even see what this one is like. Snapseed … Free …

  • it sucks! constant crashing. the painting with dodge and burn leaves streaks, on the curves adjustment you cant bring the end points toward the center. the Adobe forum was no help. if i could, i would refund it… but didn’t open it right after i bought it… i can only hope they fix the issues…

    here is what im talking about with the streaking

    FC with Carbon Rom 1.4. Refunding for now.

    • duke69111

      I second that.

  • wish it was just an update to the “tablet” version… buy two different apps? no thanks, I’ll keep the $10 I already have on my tab and not get the additional $5 for my phone.

      I’d pay $5 for them to keep upgrading Flash on Android instead of just quitting with no viable substitute ready yet. Tech sites say HTML5 won’t be fully ready from anywhere between 2014-2020. Just wish Google would incorporate the full version of Flash in chrome mobile just like the desktop.

    They need a better hand model.

    • Where is George Costanza when you need him.

    • Pedro

      They used Kellex.

      Never mind, no over-blinged watch.

    I’ve been loving this app first the tablet version and now the phone version. It’s been well worth the price.
