Adobe Photoshop Touch for iOS is finally here and I couldn't be happier. At $9.99 ($4.99 for Educational Volume Purchasing) I think this is a great deal.
I'm not the handiest when it comes to Photoshop. I can do some photo editing and some silly stuff, but nothing compared to what some of my friends are capable of doing. I was a bit hesitant in downloading the 10 buck app, but I was not disappointed. The tutorials in the app are simply amazing. They walked me through the various things I can do on Photoshop and where all of the correct buttons could be found to make the editing process smooth. I can go back at any time and review the tutorial if I get a little lost.
I was able to take pictures and layer images and write on top of them. I felt like I could do everything I would normally do on my Mac. It's great.
As for using it as part of my iPad pilot, I'm not sure it is the right fit for me as an American Literature teacher. It would be simply amazing in Art Classes though. I have some amazing art work from students that just like to doodle while taking notes and participating in discussion. I know if they had access to this app in class, they could create masterpieces.
Below you will find some screen shots of what the app looks like and what it can do. While not all of use are masters with Photoshop, Photoshop Touch is a great app that allows the most remedial of users to express themselves with creative flair.
If you are a Nerdy Art person, this is an app that you have to have on your iPad without question.
