Adobe doesn’t have a specialized Photoshop for iPad app ready, although the software was previewed last month, but there are other solutions to replace it. However, there’s always the latest suite of iPad apps coming from Adobe: Color Lava for Photoshop, Eazel for Photoshop and Nav for Photoshop.
These apps turn the tablet into a remote control panel for the software, relying on Adobe’s Touch SDK. Adobe Color Lava is all about color creation, as it relies on the slate to create swatches and themes that can be used into the main app afterwards. With Eazel you’ll finger paint your way to making art, maybe… Various software effects will aid you.
Adobe Nav allows you to control the main computer and Photoshop using the iPad, but only for this purpose that involves image editing. Thus, you get customizable toolbars and the option of handling up to 200 open Photoshop files. These 3 apps will be available starting early May, priced between $1.99 and $4.99.
Adobe’s Touch SDK will also work on Android, QNX (BlackBerry PlayBook) and iOS, of course.
