The new Photoshop.com app for iPhone lets users to do a variety of tasks that include the basics like cropping, image rotation, apply filter effects and color control on their photos. What is interesting is that the app seamlessly integrates your iPhone album with your online Photoshop.com library. You may hence edit photos not just from your iPhone album, but also from Photoshop.com. The app doubles up as an image uploading tool which iPhone users may use to upload pictures taken on their iPhone directly on to their online account.
Some notable features that Adobe has highlighted in this new app include Soft Touch – an ability to give the pictures a subtle blur for artistic effects, Sketch – a feature to make photos look like drawings and one click 'dramatic effects' with Warm Vignette. With a focus to let users play with images without having to worry about the original copy being lost, Adobe is trying to establish themselves as the photo-editing application of choice among the users.
The 3.9MB
comes for free and is presently only available in the USA and Canada. Keeping the price at nought makes strategic sense. The focus for Adobe is not to monetize the photo editing features now made available on the iPhone , but to get as many users download and use the application and make Photoshop.com their default online library. Adobe then stands to make money from the heavy uploaders. Photoshop.com lets users upload images for free for up to 2GB (1500 photos approx.) above which users have to pay. By offering a seamless integration between the iPhone photo album and the online library, it is definitely a smart move from Adobe, late though it might have been.
Here are a few snapshots of the application. You may download the app by
