Adobe Photoshop Touch for iPad 2 Accidentally Launched, Officially Coming Monday


Adobe prematurely launched Adobe Photoshop Touch for the iPad 2 in several worldwide stores this evening, but the app has since been pulled.

Adobe first announced the product back in October, 2011 alongside 5 other upcoming tablet applications. Adobe Photoshop Touch is described as a tool to "let you quickly combine images, apply professional effects, share the results with friends and family through social networking sites like Facebook, and more".

Features listed include:
- Use popular Photoshop features designed for the tablet such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters to create mind-blowing images.
- Use your iPad camera to fill an area on a layer with the unique camera fill feature.
- Select part of an image to extract by scribbling with the Scribble Selection tool. With Refine Edge, use your fingertip to capture even hard-to-select image elements, like hair, with ease.
- Search and acquire images with the integrated Google Image Search.
- Share images on Facebook and view comments right within the app.
- Browse an inspirational gallery for the styles and results you'd like to achieve. Then follow step-by-step tutorials to easily learn techniques the pros use for great-looking results.
- Use AirPrint for wireless printing of Photoshop Touch projects.
- Upload projects to Adobe Creative Cloud* and open layered files from Adobe Photoshop Touch in Photoshop CS5.
- Maximum image resolution: 1600 x 1600 pixels

The launch is believed to have been a mistake and is expected to officially launch on Monday for $9.99 in the U.S. It will be compatible with the iPad 2 only. We've included the full set of screenshots.

Why is this even news?


Why wouldn't the launch of a major software product for the iPad be news?

Adobe "prematurely" launched this app and priced it at $9.99

My guess is they made an error and will re-launch the app on Monday priced at $199.99 -- anyone want to take bets on this?

By the way, I have the desktop (Mac OS X) full-box version of Adobe Photoshop 5, and it was $599.99, so yes, I can say they don't exactly "give away" their software for cheap...especially Photoshop.


It's $9.99 on the Android Market. The price is no mistake.

Too bad about no iPad 1 compatibility. I mean, makes sense, my iPad can barely handle Safari but still... too bad.

Woo, I managed to get it in the UK store for £6.99! It's a really good app, I'm surprised they weren't asked to demo this at the iPad 3 event.

$9.99 for the touch version? Either its functionality is half of the computer version, or this is a steal!


Maybe an extra brush will cost $10. :D

Apple and Adobe aren't really best friends these days...

Maybe someone at Adobe got wind of a more capable Aperture app coming on March 7th and decided to get PSTouch in the store to get as many sales as possible before then....

1600x1600 max ?? Renders the app all but useless for me....
