Adobe Releases New Touch iPad Apps

Adobe has released the 3 new touch iPad apps today for photographers. I gave a quick overview of these 3 iPad apps when they were announced (Photoshop Touch iPad apps) and have been waiting to finally be able to test these out. I’ll provide a full review once I have had time to spend time with all 3 of these apps, so check back for more info soon!

Here are some links to download the apps in iTunes along with a description from Adobe. Note: Adobe Photoshop CS5 version 12.0.4 that was released last week, is required to run these apps.

Adobe Eazel ($4.99)
With Adobe Eazel, you can use your iPad and your fingertips to paint beautiful works of art. Paint across your entire iPad screen, and easily access the tools you need. Send your artwork directly to Photoshop CS5 from any locationall you need is a network connection between your iPad and computer. Or do all your painting in the app, and share via email.

Adobe Nav ($1.99)
With Adobe Nav and a network connection between your iPad and computer, you can customize the Photoshop CS5 toolbar on iPad to easily access the tools you use most. Browse, reorder, view, and zoom in on up to 200 open Photoshop documents on iPad. Tap a document on iPad to make it the active document in Photoshop CS5. Disconnect from the network and use iPad to easily share files in person with others.

Adobe Color Lava ($2.99)
With Adobe Color Lava, you can use your fingertips to mix colors on your iPad and create custom swatches and five-swatch themes. Instantly access them in Photoshop CS5all you need is a network connection between your iPad and computer. Or use the app wherever inspiration strikes, and then bring your colors into Photoshop CS5 when you’re connected. Share colors via email, too.

Part of what I think is going to be really cool aside from these 3 apps is that Adobe has created a SDK for other developers to create apps that link together an iPad and Photoshop. I can’t wait to see what other creative people are going to do with this technology and am sure some pretty cool things are going to be happening soon!
