Adobe brings to the iPhone

Adobe on Friday introduced a new Photoshop app for iPhone users that lets them take and edit photos both from their phone and their online library on

The app is free of charge and offers tools like cropping, image rotation, color controls, and simple one touch filter effects that can change the look and feel of shots all at once. It also features undo and re-do controls so that if users make a mistake, or want to revert back to the original it’s just a few taps.

As soon as users are done editing any photo they can either save it back to their phone, or upload it to their account. The app also doubles as a photo taking tool since you can simply take a photo then have it upload right away.

What makes the app notable (besides from being from Adobe) is that the entire editing control set works off of gestures. Instead of using dials or sliders, users just need to swipe their finger across the screen to change things like brightness, or color values. The same goes for its filters, which can be whisked from one end of the screen to the other instead of taking up more screen real estate or using a drop down menu. It’s one of the more intuitive control methods I’ve seen on a mobile photo editing app, and can be quite precise once you get the hang of it.

The app is available right now, and is free of charge, however Adobe’s free service has a 2GB limit which can be expanded with one of its annual paid storage plans.

Photoshop for iPhone lets you do all sorts of things to your photos, including beaming them back to when you're done.
