Adobe To Introduce a new Photoshop App in October
Adobe is all set to introduce Photoshop on mobile platforms this October, at its Max conference for developers and professionals. According to a report from CNET, Adobe will unveil a new Photoshop-branded app for the iPhone and iPad this October, with an Android version coming later.
Codenamed “Project Rigel,” the app will be free, and come with a number powerful and commonly used features. These include a touchscreen UI, offering editing options on the bottom, content-aware fill and spot healing.
Adobe also plans to bring precision positioning and a face recognition tool to mobile, that’ll allow users to quickly adjust different facial features.
While the app is designed to be powerful, the U.S.-based software firm has focused to make it easy to use as well, so that people just getting into image editing can use it with least trouble. Manu Anand, senior product manager for digital imaging at Adobe, says:
Project Rigel is designed and built in a way that serves the needs of professionals familiar with retouching tools on the desktop, but more so for people not familiar with Photoshop tools like content-aware fill or spot healing. It democratizes them and makes them easier to use.
