Adobe has issued updates for its recently released apps for iPad that integrate with Photoshop. All three apps, originally launched in May 2011, have been revised and have had features added to them. Adobe Nav, the remote file browser and tool selector, for instance now has the ability to transfer images from an iPad photo library into Photoshop CS5 for editing. The updated apps are available for download from Apple's App Store now.
New Enhancements to Photoshop Touch Apps
The following new features that unite the fun and interactive experience of the iPad with the power and precision of Photoshop are being added to Adobe Eazel, Adobe Color Lava and Adobe Nav:
- Adobe Eazel – Digital artists now have easy access to the paintings they create with the new Eazel image gallery and are able to save and open artwork within the app.
- Adobe Color Lava – Using the iPad 2 built-in camera, creatives can now capture images from within Color Lava, and then pick their color inspiration from captured images to dab, swirl and mix into custom color themes.
- Adobe Nav – Users can now transfer images directly from their iPad photo library into Photoshop CS5 for editing, designing and retouching.
Initially made available in the Apple App Store in early May 2011, the Photoshop Touch apps allow tablet device users to be creative anywhere. Digital artists use Adobe Eazel to create rich, realistic paintings with their fingertips that can then be sent directly to Photoshop CS5 for further refinement. Adobe Color Lava allows for tactile color mixing directly on the iPad to create custom color swatches and themes that can then transfer into Photoshop CS5. With Adobe Nav, users can view and select up to 200 open Photoshop files, even when working offline, and also create a custom toolbar to drive Photoshop CS5 from the iPad.
The Photoshop Touch apps were developed using the Photoshop Touch Software Development Kit (SDK), which gives developers the ability to create apps that interact with Photoshop CS5 for mobile and tablet devices including iOS, Android and BlackBerry PlayBook. The Photoshop Touch SDK has been a very popular download among the Photoshop community of publishers, trainers and plug-in providers, enabling them to innovate and redefine the Photoshop creative workflow.

The updated Adobe Photoshop Touch apps (versions 1.0.2) are available through the Apple App Store. Pricing and download links are as follows:
