Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced that Adobe Photoshop Touch is now available for iPad 2, via the iTunes App Store. The announcement was made at the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2012.

According to the press release, 'Adobe Photoshop Touch offers core Photoshop features, as well as new capabilities for creating and sharing in an app custom-built for tablets. The app is a central component of Adobe Touch Apps, a family of six intuitive touch screen applications, inspired by Adobe Creative Suite software. iPad versions of the other Adobe Touch Apps are expected later this year.'

'Photoshop Touch gives users the ability to combine multiple photos into layered images, make essential edits and apply professional effects to create beautiful artwork, touch up photos, paint, lay out ideas and much more. The Scribble Selection Tool allows users to easily extract objects in an image by simply scribbling on what to keep, and then what to remove. With Refine Edge technology from Photoshop, even hard-to-select areas with soft edges are easily captured when making selections. Photoshop Touch helps users quickly find images and share creations through integration with Facebook and Google Image Search.'

'People will be amazed with what they can create on the iPad using Photoshop Touch,' said David Wadhwani, senior vice president and general manager, Digital Media Business Unit, Adobe. 'Photoshop Touch combines the magic of Photoshop and its core features with the convenience of a tablet, bringing image-editing power to the fingertips of millions of people.'

The app is one of a series of six Adobe touch apps that is optimised for touch and tablets. This will enable image-editing on the iPad.
