Adobe launches photoshop app for Android

Offers image editing tools, colour adjustments and photo sharing capabilities

By CBR Staff Writer

Adobe Systems has launched Mobile for Android software, extending its digital imaging technology to users of the Google mobile operating system. The Android application offers consumers with image-editing tools, colour adjustments and instant photo-sharing capabilities.

According to Adobe, the Mobile optimises the camera-phone experience by allowing users to browse for their photos online and on their phone, directly from the application. It offers user-friendly photo-editing tools like crop, rotate and flip. The Soft Focus filter can be used to create a subtle blur effect, and for performing colour adjustments such as exposure, saturation, tint changes and classic black-and-white.

The company said that the new app enables users to automatically upload pictures to albums in the background, even when the Mobile application is not running. accounts provide 2GB of free online photo storage, which equates to over 1,500 photos.

In addition, the new tab-based user interface enables users to view local and online content. Also, the Android Photo Browser makes maneuvering through photos fast and convenient, bringing users’ photo collections right to their pockets, Adobe said.

Doug Mack, vice president and general manager of consumer and hosted solutions at Adobe, said: “Adobe is excited to extend its digital imaging capabilities to Android phone users so they can take control of their growing collections of mobile photos. Mobile is a great resource to edit, upload and share photos in a few short moments. It’s the perfect complement to the mobile phone cameras found on Android devices.”

The Adobe Mobile for Android application is available as a free download from the Android Market.
