This applications can transform and combine images, apply professional effects, share results with friends and family through sites like Facebook, and more – all from the convenience of your iPad.
Adobe Photoshop Touch is the flagship app from a group of six tablet apps that Adobe announced last October.

The six apps, which will carry “introductory pricing” of $9.99 each, include:
• Adobe Photoshop Touch: Image editing and transformation.
• Adobe Collage: Photo importing and drawing tools for creating image collages.
• Adobe Debut: Presentation software for Creative Suite files.
• Adobe Ideas: Vector-based drawing tools. (Released for iPad last year and currently priced at $5.99.)
• Adobe Kuler: Color theme generation and exploration.
• Adobe Proto: Prototyping tools for websites and mobile apps.

The company has been taking steps onto the iPad and other tablets with a series of applications, although they have obviously yet to match the capabilities of the desktop versions of the Adobe’s key software products.

Adobe’s initial goal for the iPad was to explore how the device might be used as an auxiliary input for the desktop version, but the company has broadened its scope to now include at least some of the dedicated image editing features from Photoshop in its latest apps.
