Adobe announced a significant update to its Photoshop Touch app for iPad today, with the introduction of version 1.3. Included in the free update to the $10 app is full Retina display support for the new iPad, higher resolutions with support for images up to 12 megapixels, and a number of other new features and enhancements. A full list of features, which include two new languages and effects, is below:

Photoshop Touch can now work with print-resolution images, up to 12 megapixels with several layers. Remember that Photoshop Touch works with up to 16 full-size layers in a single file, all in real-time, in contrast to more simple single-layer apps. The ability to work with multiple layers at such a high resolution is a big accomplishment, and we can’t wait to see what you can create with it. The default resolution is 4.2 megapixels with 10 layers, but you can raise that to 12* megapixels in Preferences.

What’s New in Version 1.3

• Retina Display Support: See your images like never before with the Retina display on the new iPad (third generation). • Higher resolution capabilities: Work on high-resolution images while maintaining the highest image quality. Supports images up to 12 megapixels. • Two new languages: Russian and Brazilian Portuguese. • Two new Effects: Shred and Colorize • Smoother animation and scrolling in the organizer, tutorial browser, and file picker • New gesture to toggle 100% view and fit screen (three-finger tap) • New pixel nudging mode for precise movements • Support for Apple Photo Stream • Various bug fixes
