Adobe Photoshop Touch

July 4, 2012

What is Adobe Photoshop Touch?

The new Adobe® Photoshop® Touch app lets you quickly combine images, apply professional effects, share the results with friends and family through social networking sites like Facebook, and more — all from the convenience of your iPad or Android tablet.¹

Use powerful core Adobe® Photoshop® features that are designed for a tablet, as well as new capabilities specifically tailored for mobile design and social networking.¹


Combine multiple images with layers. Adjust layer order, control individual layer opacity, and move and manipulate layers independently.

Versatile image browsing and acquisition

Choose images from multiple sources, including social sites like Facebook, online image searches such as Google Image Search, or a live feed from your tablet’s camera — all directly within Adobe Photoshop Touch.

Sharing through Facebook

Entertain friends and family by easily sharing your new images on Facebook. See their comments right in Adobe Photoshop Touch.

Interactive tutorials

Browse an inspirational gallery for the styles and results you’d like to achieve, and then follow step-by-step tutorial guides to easily learn techniques the pros use for great-looking results.

Selection tools

Scribble on the part of an image you want to keep, and then on the area you want to discard — Adobe Photoshop Touch magically does the rest. Other standard selection tools for extracting image elements are included.

Photoshop effects and filters

Apply popular Photoshop effects and filters to your entire composition, a particular layer, or a specific selection.

Filter brushes

Paint dazzling special effects onto your images using just your fingertip.

Edge-aware painting

Discover how precise painting with your fingers can be, using this option for auto-detecting where paint should stop. Easily add color or visual appeal right up to any object’s edge.

Refine Edge

Using just your fingertip, capture even hard-to-select image elements, like hair, with ease as you combine items from different photos.

Tone and color adjustment

Apply precise tone and color adjustments to your entire composition, a particular layer, or a specific selection.

Photoshop compatible file format

Start brainstorming and creating in Photoshop Touch, and then access your artwork through Adobe Creative Cloud for further refinement in Photoshop on your Mac or PC.² Requires a downloadable plug-in for  Photoshop CS5.

Integration with Adobe Creative Cloud

Easily access your files, or share with others, thanks to the ability to sync files to Adobe Creative Cloud.³


Make your images pop with cool graphical text. Apply strokes, add drop shadows and fades, and more.

  1. I recently went on a trip to the hills and obviously went crazy with the wide angle shots. It’s a real shame that there’s so much distortion in a wide angle shot because not a single one of my pics is suitable to use as a wallpaper or postcard. I searched google for ways to fix wide angle distortion and found this – It looked kinda surreal so I downloaded the trial version from here – and found adaptive wide angle to be an absolute god send!

  2. You wouldn’t think that a tool as basic as the crop tool can be improved or modified but as someone who works heavily with resizing and scaling images for mailers, invites, postcards and visiting cards,I find this new feature in Photoshop CS6 to be a life saver! It’s amazing how easy it makes your life with simple tweaks to the crop size, shape and centralization of content.

  4. As a hobby, I picked up Photoshop and started making mock movie posters and text art for friends using their Facebook photos. I was always fascinated by the way textures and perspectives were added to text forms and generally spent 3-4 hours on the weekends going through photoshop tutorials. Then I found this video and decided to give the new CS6 a shot. It’s really awesome and makes my life so much easier. Now I no longer get frustrated with my screen and churn out 2-3 posters every weekend!

  5. Ever since Instagram came along, adding effects has been all the rage. I used the app myself to make my pics look more “arty” but then got kinda bored of it. I installed an old photoshop version and started playing with the blur feature to add perspective and tilt-shift effects to my shots. After seeing these insane new features in the CS6 blur gallery, I could resist getting the trial version and playing around with it.

  6. Photoshop – Using the new Crop tool
    Cropping is one of the most common operations in Photoshop. So it’s only fitting that the Crop tool has experienced a quantum leap in CS6. In this movie, watch how to preview the angle of your image to confirm that your crop is plumb. You can revisit a crop any time you like, so you never waste effort. And by default, the Crop tool hides pixels instead of permanently deleting them.

  7. I’m a photographer and I hate wide angle shots just because everything gets so distorted. My brother gifted me the Canon EF-S 10-22mm for my birthday and I haven’t really used it because I hate how it screws up the dimensions of everything. He showed me this video because he was pissed off that I wasn’t using his gift and he even bought me the new photosohop CS6. This adaptive wide angle feature’s so freakin awesome! You can get the trial version from the Adobe site but trust me, make a small face and get someone to buy it for you,it’s totally worth more than just 30 days!

  8. 3. I’m a painter and wanted to make the jump to digital art, looking at the way things were going in the art scene. So I got the trial version of photoshop from and started experimenting with some tools on the software. The interface is really easy to use. Then my wife suggested I watch this So I did and it blew my mind! Now 3D art is a piece of cake!

  9. I’m a housewife and sometimes get really bored at home. A friend of mine suggested I try designing because I was good at art and stuff. So I got photoshop from here
    It was a little confusing for me initially but my son showed me this link now I can make superb designs!

  10. Watch the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Roadshow videos on demand…

  11. I watched a lot of Illustrator and Photoshop videos when the new CS6 came out but a lot of the videos only spoke about features rather than demonstrate how to use them. I had a lot of questions about using these features so signed up for the roadshow in Delhi. This video – covers everything that happened. I hope it’ll help you out as much as it did me.

  12. I’ve been facing some problems figuring out how exactly the new features of photoshop and illustrator work and spent a lot of time going through tutorial videos. It’s such a pain finding the right video of the right features, fortunately Adobe released this roadshow video which is one big collection of all the new features – searching for tutorials just got a lot easier.

  13. I went through all the videos of all the new features in Adobe’s new software but it’s just a pain finding the right video when you need it. Instead of bookmarking all the links I found this one video which covers it all!
    Check this out – It’s pretty cool to see all the best-in-class tools of CS6 in one big video.

  14. When my friend told me about Adobe’s roadshow, I didn’t know what he was talking about. Good thing Adobe put up this video
    After watching it though I wanted to kill my friend for not telling me about it before! I really wish I could have been there. Anyways, for those who missed it, you should really check out this video.

  15. I went to this roadshow
    to get tips and tricks with the new features of photoshop and illustrator. It’s really amazing that Adobe did this for all of us who couldn’t go through the demo videos. Plus, I got to meet a lot of people from the industry as well. Check it out, maybe you’ll find the help you want too.

  16. I’ve been a big fan of Adobe’s software and often upgraded to the latest suites to keep up with the technology. This time around, I bought CS6 but there were just sooo many features that I couldn’t keep up with. I watched truck loads of demo videos for each individual software but remembering it all is pain. This roach show that they hosted was really helpful because it gives me all I need to know, in one simple palce!

  17. I used to play around with my photos on photoshop all the time, making small edits and adjustments here and there. I went to the Adobe Roadshow just to check out what new features were in the CS6 suite and I was amazed at the potential of digital designing and photo editing. Check out all the features here

    and you could hone your editing and colour correction skills too!
