Adobe Photoshop Express
Professional photo editing from an industry powerhouse
Adobe is one of the premiere photography software companies and now it has brought its industry standard Photoshop application to the iPad.
This version doesn’t even come close to the original in terms of features but what it does provide are some stripped down functions in an incredibly slick and easy to use application. As the iPad doesn’t have a camera you will have to sync some pictures you’ve already taken in order use that app.
When it loads you have to select a picture to edit and from there you can do a number of cool things to enhance what you and your camera have already achieved.
The most basic functions are things like cropping and adding borders and on a more professional level you can adjust brightness, saturation and contrast. You can also add preset effects in a very simple way too. You can save your creations back to your picture library or upload them to Photoshop online (but this requires a membership).
If we’re totally honest there are far more advanced image editing apps on the store, though we doubt any are as polished as Adobe’s offering. The app is so easy to use that you can fumble your way into expertly enhancing your pictures without trying too hard. If you have used the desktop Photoshop app, however, then this will fall far short of your initial expectations.
An extremely well made app if a little limited in some departments.
