Adobe Photoshop Touch For Mobile Performance

To use the Creative Cloud service you need to register on the Adobe website. Once you have done so you can log on using your smartphone. If you have the tablet version of the app, you can also log on there, meaning you can share your images between devices. If you have Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 or later you can also share your images on your computer.

Once you've set up the Creative Cloud you are then able to import photos from their, as well as from your camera roll. When you've loaded an image there is a menu bar along the top and bottom of the screen.

The first option on the top is all about selections, this allows you to cut, copy, past and much more. The second option is adjustments, you can turn your image black and white or change the saturation, brightness, contrast and adjust levels and curves. The third option is fx filters which are separated into four categories with nice different effects in each: basic, stylize, artistic and photo. The fourth option, represented with an & symbol, allows you to crop, change image size, rotate etc. The fifth options is undo, a redo button appears underneath if you do undo.

The first option along the bottom has a number of options such as the clone stamp tool, various selection tools etc. The middle section here has options depending on which tool you've selected from the bottom left options. The last option on the bottom is layers.

The two images below were provided by Adobe as an example of how you can use layers, scribble selection and refine edge to cut the hatter from the studio shot and place him into the warehouse screen. The final shot has been created ourselves using the instructions provided. If you're an experienced Photoshop user you'll find this easy.

If you're a novice, you'll still get your monies worth from the app and you'll also learn some of the Photoshop basics on the way. It might not be the kind of app you'll use on all your pictures taken on your smartphone, but you can save your DSLR images and edit them while on the move, a great way to kill time!

The Adobe Photoshop Touch For Mobile is simply the best photo editing app available for smartphones.

2.99 - a Bargain for iPhone's. Come on Adobe give the Microsoft Windows 8 Phone a Go, with a stellar review like the one above I'd pay almost twice as much for it for playing on train journeys.
