Photoshop companion iPad apps

Today Adobe released three Photoshop CS5 companion iPad apps. This is in conjunction with Adobe’s new Creative Suite 5.5 that was released last week with iPad apps support for Photoshop. The 3 new apps  are available today for sale on the iTunes app store. These three iPad applications, which range in price from $1.99 to $4.99, require Adobe Photoshop CS5 version 12.0.4.
Adobe Eazel ($4.99): Offers digital artists a way to create stunning and realistic paintings with fingertip touch and introduces a new kind of interaction between “wet” and “dry” paints. This iPad app takes advantage of cutting-edge painting technology on the iPad. The paintings that you create can then be sent directly to Photoshop CS5 for compositing or for developing the artwork further.


Adobe Color Lava ($2.99): Creative professionals are able to use this iPad app with their fingertips to mix colors on , creating custom color swatches and themes to transfer back into Photoshop. The app offers mmediate access to those color creations within Photoshop CS5 with a wifi sync to your Mac or PC. Adobe Color Lava iPad app will be great to use on the go whenever inspiration grabs you. You can also email your Adobe Color Lava creations to yourself and others from within this iPad app

Adobe Nav ($1.99): Increases workflow efficiency by letting users select and control Photoshop tools using your iPad as the input enterface. This iPad app lets you customize the toolbar, browse and zoom in on up to 200 open Photoshop files or easily create new files.
More companion applications are expected with Adobe’s new Photoshop Touch SDK that was released to iOS developers recently. It allows developers to create iPad apps that interact with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CS5 Extended software.

Been an iPad user from day one of its release. Apple has been innovative from the beginning and now the rest of the world is getting on board. It's great to be able to spread the word about one of their mobile devices.
