Adobe has released Photoshop Fix app for iOS, the app which it demoed on iPad Pro during Apple’s September 9 event. The app is free and has some great features for image retouching and restoration, most of which Photoshop users already love to use on the desktop.
Photoshop Fix does not need Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscription but a free Adobe ID is required to use the app. Users who are signed up on Creative Cloud can access their photos and from other devices and edit and sync them back to the cloud.
Following are the features supported in Photoshop Fix:
• Retouch and restore photos using tools that give you the exact look, structure and feel you want: - Liquify — Push, pull, rotate, swell or reshape any area to create subtle or drastic effects. - Heal and patch — Fix imperfections using content from surrounding areas and then blend the result. - Smooth — Simply paint to smooth or sharpen skin, landscapes or other content. - Lighten and darken — Add or remove light from specific parts of a photo. • Edit and adjust photos using a variety of essential tools: - Color — Desaturate to remove all color or to create a mix of color and black-and-white. - Paint — Get precise effects with an eyedropper that lets you sample colors, an adjustable brush and an eraser. - Adjust — Add vignettes and control exposure, contrast and saturation - Defocus — Blur part of a photo to draw attention to your key subject. • Send your images directly to Photoshop CC on the desktop so you can refine them and take them further. Fix converts all your edits to layers and packages your image as a PSD file.
It is really awesome to see how powerful mobile devices have become to be able to replicate and enhance functionality that we have been using since ages in their desktop counterparts. Here is a video of the app in action:
The app is available for free for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 8.1 and above.
