Wizardry at your fingertips

It’s amazing how powerful tablet computing is becoming these days…simply reinforcing the notions that mobile apps are really a driving force in today’s industry.  It’s really made me question whether desktop computing may be working its way toward extinction when laptops, tablets, and phones these days are able to accommodate many of today’s tasks.

I present to you another great Adobe product… Adobe Photoshop Fix.  This application is aimed at providing users simple but effective photo editing tools to enhance or “fix” your photos.

“Built on Photoshop technology, Photoshop Fix empowers you to do serious image retouching and restoration on your iPad or iPhone.  Heal, smooth, liquify, lighten and make other edits and adjustments that give you the precise look you’re after.  Sign in to Adobe Creative Cloud to access edited photos directly within Adobe mobile and desktop apps to further refine them or use them in other creative projects – it’s all powered by Adobe CreativeSync.

  • Retouch and restore photos using tools that give you the exact look, structure and feel you want:
    • Liquify – Push, pull, rotate, swell and reshape any area subtle or drastic effects.
    • Heal and patch – Fix imperfections using content from surrounding areas and then blend the result.
    • Smooth – Simply paint to smooth or sharpen skin, landscapes or other content.
    • Lighten and darken – Add or remove light from specific parts of a photo.
  • Edit and adjust photos using a variety of essential tools:
    • Color – Desaturate to remove all color or to create a mix of color and black-and-white.
    • Paint – Get precise effects with an eyedropper that lets you sample colors, an adjustable brush and an eraser.
    • Adjust – Add vignettes and control exposure, contrast and saturation.
    • Defocus – Blur part of a photo to draw attention to your key subject.
  • Send your images directly to Photoshop CC on the desktop so you can refine them and take them further.   Fix converts all your edits to layers and packages your image as a PSD file.”  ~ iTunes App Store

I have been working with Photoshop for quite some time.  I’m interested to see how powerful and versatile these tools are…as well as see how people who are new to this interact with the application.   I’ve tinkered around with the application so far and it’s managed to peak my interest.  Perhaps in the near future, I will post a bit of my work to let y’all judge for yourselves.
