Adobe Touts Photoshop Touch For iPhones, Androids

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - It used to be just for desktops and laptops. Then tablets. And now, smartphones. With more and more being done on portable platforms, popular software has to adapt to the times.

That's why it's no surprise that Adobe ( ADBE) has announced a new version of its super-popular photo editing software made especially for smartphones.

Photoshop Touch for smartphones has the same feature set that comes in the version for tablet computers.

According to the Adobe blog post:

"Much like the tablet version, Photoshop Touch on the phone has core Photoshop features like layers, advanced selections tools, adjustments and filters. We also packed in features exclusive to Photoshop Touch, like Scribble Selection for high-precision selections using only your finger, and Camera Fill for real-time creative blending of your camera feed with layers. This app features the same creative filters as the tablet version, like Color Drops and Acrylic Paint, and also a new Ripple filter."

Photoshop Touch will reportedly be able to sync projects at full resolution and layers intact via your (free) Adobe Creative Cloud account. And, you won't have to pay for a subscription to sync your stuff either.

The new app is available now from the Apple ( AAPL) App Store and Google ( GOOG) Play (in the United States) for $4.99.
