Macworld reports that Adobe is making its first application available on the Mac App Store. Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Editor  is being offered for $79.99 which is less than the $99 boxed version (which is often discounted– for instance it is $60 currently after a $20 discount at Amazon).

Mac App Store version of the application costs $80 and includes all the same editing tools as the full version. However, unlike the full $100 version, it does not come bundled with the Adobe Elements Organizer application. This version is available only in English, and cannot be purchased anywhere outside of Apple’s Mac App Store.

The big deal here is that a huge software maker, that makes a lot of money on selling boxed software, is trying out the App Store.  Adobe are also experimenting in the iOS App Store as well.  The big question: Will Creative Suite be there soon with Apple taking 30% of the cut?  Ouch.

Adobe, which last week updated Photoshop to work with its freshly announced iPad apps, has finally released said programs for iOS devices. Adobe Eazel, Adobe Nav and Adobe Color Lava, iPad companion apps for Photoshop, are now available for download on the App Store. Adobe Eazel is a finger-paint program that sells for five bucks. The app lets you send your artwork directly to Photoshop CS5 from any location, provided you have a network connection between your iPad and a computer. The remaining two apps sport even tighter integration with the popular image editing software. More information and videos after the break…

Adobe has just updated Photoshop to version 12.0.4 this morning. It includes the promised support for Adobe’s new iPad apps designed to work with desktop Photoshop: Adobe Nav, Adobe Color Lava and Adobe Eazel. Said apps are in the process of begin added to the App Store and are not live yet on all regional App Stores. The release notes mention the following changes:

The 12.0.4 update enables specially designed apps on tablets, smartphones, and PCs to communicate with and control interaction with Photoshop CS5 (Located in the File menu: Remote Connections). Now you can be creative on other devices and instantly incorporate what you create into Photoshop. You must install the 12.0.4 update to activate a remote connection between Photoshop CS5 and any apps that Adobe or third-party developers create to interact with Photoshop. For example, Photoshop CS5 must be updated to 12.0.4 to interact with three new iPad apps that Adobe has designed to work with it – Adobe Nav, Adobe Color Lava, and Adobe Eazel. Available on the App Store.

Hot off the presses, new tidbits hit us following the launch of Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 and new iPad apps from Adobe, both announced this morning. TUAW reports that Adobe’s video training resources now support iOS-friendly streaming to iPhones, iPods and iPads. Creative pros can now learn new tricks as they commute on train, go for a lunch break and so forth.

It’s an interesting – and rather telling – departure from Adobe’s stubborn insistence on serving Flash-formatted content only to iOS users. Another tidbit comes from MacRumors which profiles Photoshop Remote, the first third-party iPad app built using the Photoshop Touch SDK. Check it out in action right after the break. expand full story

Adobe has updated their Photoshop Express application for iOS to include support for the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 Retina Display in addition to support for iOS 4 quick-app-switching (multitasking). The new multitasking feature will work hand-in-hand with the new background uploading feature. This will let you upload your photos via the sharing option without actually having to stay in the application.

The update also promises a quicker experience with “faster photo captures” and “editing workflows.” The new Retina Display support will come in handy for iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 users looking to have a crisper window for their photo-based creations. Also, the new update requires iOS 4.2 and is a universal binary for all iOS mobile devices.

Numerous readers wrote in to let us know that Adobe’s Photoshop Express for iOS is literally complete garbage. The app constantly crashed on start up for many users and the app’s App Store comments are flooded with users experiencing the issues as well. Adobe was quick to act and an update that supposedly fixes the issues is now available. 


Photoshop Express is a universal iOS app that launched yesterday and is formally known as Photoshop.com Mobile. The new application brings many new features including iPad support, but does not bring enhanced graphics for the iPhone 4s Retina display. Let us know in the comments if this update did anything for you.

You may recall the Adobe Photoshop.com Mobile app for iPhone and iPod touch and how it provided limited forms of Adobe’s editing tools. Today, the app has been rebranded as Adobe Photoshop Express and now supports the iPad. The app provides all the basic editing tools such as cropping, rotating, and color adjustments. 


The iPad version allows users to edit multiple photos simaltaniously in either portrait or landscape. The app is still free universally, and surprisingly does not support the iPhone 4s Retina Display.

Adobe’s Photoshop.com has mobile apps for both iPhone and Android. Each platform features a similar set of features.

However, in an interesting twist today, Adobe announced that other Android application developers would be allowed to call up the Photoshop.com application to do photo editing inside their own applications.

Photoshop.com, the online, Flash-based version of Photoshop has made its way to the iPhone.  Of course the iPhone version doesn’t use Flash and isn’t quite as robust as the desktop or web counterparts.  That being said, it does offer some nice touches including:

  • Basics: Crop, Rotate, and Flip
  • Color: Exposure, Saturation, Tint, Black and White
  • Filters: Sketch, Soft Focus
  • Effects: Vibrant, Pop, Border, Vignette Blur, Warm Vintage, Rainbow, White Glow, Soft Black and White

I’ve installed the application and it performs fairly well.  Strangely, it doesn’t appear that you can edit your online photos from the app.  You can edit photos in your library and upload them to your account but not the reverse.  Once it is uploaded, you’ll need to go to the Flash based Photoshop.com to continue to edit.

Also, I would have like to have seen some Level/Auto-level options.  Otherwise, great product!

Get the iPhone app here (App Store link) free.  More info from Adobe and screenshots below.

Adobe has this afternoon posted a video detailing some of the new features it is developing for Photoshop.

Hosted by the company’s Photoshop genius, Russell Brown, the video is available online now – the only catch is, it’s only presently accessible through Facebook. (Adobe should do the world a favour and shove it up on YouTube, we think).

The video shows a selection of features as demonstrated at Photoshop World. These include a new warp tool, Painter-style brushes – which aim to emulate the features found in Corel’s flagship Painter product, and much more.

A new Warping technology is also pretty interesting. Basically this means that by locking down certain parts of an image an image editor can alter other parts without altering the overall subject. The illustration shows what can be done with a man’s arms, which can be moved around the subject’s body….

While the company isn’t claiming these features will be found in future version, Photoshop CS5, or any future version, Adobe is presenting the video as a taste of what kind of work it is conducting inside its labs.

Meanwhile, it is interesting to reflect that the current iteration of Photoshop (CS4) is currently available at over $100 discount through Amazon, $586.49 rather than the $699 list price.

And if you’re a Photoshop user then we think it’s pretty possible you may be interested in today’s stunning deal for a Canon large format printer, also from Amazon – $499 rather than the c.$1,600 list price. We think it’s a great deal.
