As developers take an increasing interest in the Windows Phone platform, it’s little wonder its app store already has a sizable number of photo editing options to choose from.

If you’re yet to find the one that’s right for you, or just fancy trying something new, you’ll be interested to learn that the biggest name in the field of image editing has finally gotten around to launching an app that’s long been available for iOS and Android users.Adobe-Photoshop-Express

Released Friday, Adobe’s Photoshop Express is free and available for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 devices.

As you’d expect with a company that knows a thing or do about image manipulation, Adobe’s mobile software offers a ton of options to beautify your images, enabling you to turn a disappointing shot into something that’ll have friends asking, “What app did you edit that with?”

Tweaking features galore

All the tweaking features you’d expect are present, including contrast, exposure, highlights, shadows, temperature, sharpen, and more besides. Got better things to do than spend time moving sliders back and forth? Then simply hit the auto-enhance button to see what Adobe comes up with instead.

Of course, you can also crop, rotate, flip, and remove red-eye from your images, with all of these features easily accessible from Photoshop Express’s main screen.

These days, no photo app worth its salt would dare omit Instagram-like filters from its offering, and Photoshop Express is no different. Twenty-two ‘Looks’ filters offer plenty of ways to significantly transform your image with a single tap. If you want 20 more, a $2.99 in-app purchase gives you access to its ‘Premium looks’ library.

When you’re happy with your masterpiece, hit the top right button to bring up a ton of sharing options, which include Revel, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram, which, incidentally, is still in beta for Windows Phone.

It’s taken a while for Adobe to roll out Photoshop Express for Windows Phone, but for many smartphone shooters looking for a versatile and powerful image editing app for their Windows Phone device, it’s likely to have been worth the wait.

With an eight-core A12X processor, the iPad Pro (2018) promised enough power to handle tasks normally reserved for laptop computers -- and photographers took note. At launch, the iPad's processor, Liquid Retina screen, and ultra-thin profile held big promise for creative pros on the go.

Unfortunately, the reality was less dazzling than the dream, dampened by the inability to use external storage and the annoyance of uploading photos twice if you wanted to use something other than Apple's default Photos app, such as Adobe Lightroom.

Photoshop for iPad gets one-tap selections, takes baby step toward desktop power
photoshop for ipad update roadmap november 2019 0365

Photoshop for iPad has a ways to go before the mobile version is as robust as the desktop software -- but that’s not stopping the new app from making a few firsts along the way. On Monday, December 16, Adobe launched Select Subject on Photoshop for iPad. Adobe says that the tool is a first for any iPad app, with no other apps offering a selection tool that’s simultaneously as powerful and simple.

Like the desktop tool, Select Subject uses machine learning to analyze the image and make a selection around the subject. The tool uses multiple algorithms to create the finished selection, including one to actually find the subject and one to create a sharp edge with minimal artifacts. While using multiple algorithms, the tool works in one tap.

Photoshop for iPad gets a boost as Adobe adds these missing features

Photoshop for iPad is not yet even a month old, but Adobe is already sharing plans to narrow the gap between the iOS app and the desktop program. In a blog post published on November 21, Adobe shared a road map for the features that are coming next to Photoshop for iPad, starting with more-advanced selection tools.

While Adobe says the goal is to create an iPad app with the same features, the company said from the start that the iPad app wouldn’t have identical features to the desktop program. Despite the warning that full Photoshop for iPad is still coming, the app was met with mixed reviews at launch. Based on the same code base as the desktop app, Photoshop for iPad at launch still has more features than apps like Photoshop Fix using an interface that, while adapted to a touchscreen, feels familiar to previous desktop users. Those features include Adobe Fonts, which users also need to download the Creative Cloud app to bring to the iPad.
