Adobe Launches Photoshop Android Application

Photoshop is hands down the most popular professional image editing tool. In fact, the brand has reached the pinnacle of success where the actual brand name becomes a verb like Google, Kleenex, and Xerox. When a picture is obviously edited you say it was “photoshopped” regardless of what picture editing tool was actually used.

Guess what?


Adobe is bringing a mobile version of their award winning software to Android Phones with Mobile:

Transform photos with essential edits like crop, rotate and flip. Drag our finger across photos to adjust saturation and tint. Auto-upload and share your photos with a free account. From Adobe, the makers of Photoshop. By downloading you are agreeing to the Terms of Use at

When Android is compared to Apple the main place the iPhone wins out is the App Store – in terms of quantity and quality of apps. I’ll admit it – but I still think the advantage will eventually swing in favor of android as more and more momentum is built. This Photoshop Mobile App is a great example of prime time developers/company’s recognizing the value of Android. More will follow.

You’ll definitely want to check out their Official Video Demo for which, unfortunately, I can’t find embed code. Any way you look at it this is pretty awesome. Today we had a few writers suggest applications for Droid newbies… add this one to that list. Positive comments are already piling on the Android Market listing.
