Photography fans retouching their images on the go have a lot to be happy about today as Adobe has released Photoshop Touch 1.3 for iPad, a new version of the company’s mobile Photoshop that now features Retina display support and higher resolution capabilities.
Installed on a third-generation iPad, Photoshop Touch 1.3 lets you “see your images like never before.”
A blog entry on the Photoshop blog signed Stephen Nielson says everything from UI graphics to text is now “more crisp and clean,” adding that “It was no easy task to get such a complex app like Photoshop Touch to work with the Retina display, but we think you’ll love the result.”
Avid users of the app will surely appreciate your effort, Nielson.
Photoshop Touch now lets you work on high-resolution images while maintaining the highest image quality, according to the changelog. The app now supports images up to 12 megapixels on the newest iPads.
“Photoshop Touch can now work with print-resolution images, up to 12 megapixels with several layers,” according to Nielson.
“Remember that Photoshop Touch works with up to 16 full-size layers in a single file, all in real-time, in contrast to more simple single-layer apps,” he notes.
“The ability to work with multiple layers at such a high resolution is a big accomplishment, and we can’t wait to see what you can create with it.”
Photoshop Touch offers a default resolution of 4.2 megapixels with 10 layers. iPad 3 users will be able to up the ante by visiting the preferences panel.
Other changes incorporated in this release include two new effects (Shred and Colorize), smoother animation and scrolling, a three-finger tap gesture to toggle 100% view and fit screen, a pixel nudging mode for precise movements, and Photo Stream support for iOS 5 users.
Various bug fixes have been implemented as well, and the app is now localized in Russian and Brazilian Portuguese.
