Photoshop Mobile for iPhone hits App Store

Adobe have released Photoshop Mobile for iPhone, and as you'd expect from the title it offers straightforward on-device image editing for iPhone and iPod touch owners.  As well as basic crop, rotate and flip tools, there's also saturation and tint control, exposure and vibrancy tweaking and various filters and effects.

Those filters range from the straightforward – for instance converting images to black and white – to more unusual special effects like Warm Vintage, Vignette and Pop.  There's also a Sketch tool, which creates a hand-drawn picture from a photo, and a Soft Focus tool which we're assuming makes you look just like Cher in any of her music videos from the past twenty years.

Users also get 2GB of free online album storage at, which they can access – and upload to – directly from their iPhone.  Photoshop Mobile for iPhone is available through the App Store now, though only in the US and Canada at present, as a free download.
