With more and more smartphones functioning like the average computer, mobile applications that add to the PC experience are in as much demand as ever. Adobe Systems has devised Photoshop.com Mobile for Android OS too. The image editing program was launched for iPhone users last month.
The application enables users to browse online as well as on the phone for their images. It delivers user-friendly image editing tools, color adjustments and instant photo-sharing options. The editing features comprise of crop, rotate and flip capabilities. Shade adjustment functionality is provided by exposure, tint changes, monochrome and saturation tools. The embedded Soft Focus filter lends images a blurry feel.
“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. Photoshop.com 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,” enthused Doug Mack, VP and general manager, Consumer and Hosted Solutions at Adobe.
The Android-enabled software permits users to do away with photo edits and keep the original copy if required. Images can be stored in Photoshop.com user accounts and salvaged later via internet connected PCs. The online accounts come with 2GB or 1,500 free photo storage. The tab-based UI lets owners view local and online content simultaneously, while Android Photo Browser enables easy navigation between pictures. Moreover, images may be automatically uploaded to Photoshop.com albums even when the application is not being run.
Only U.S. and Canadian users may avail of Photoshop.com Mobile for Android which is out as a free download from the Android Market.
