Adobe Takes Photoshop Touch and Adobe Touch Apps to Barcelona

Photoshop Touch went live in the iTunes App Store for $9.99 on February 27th. The app is also available in the Android Market at the same price, along with the other five Touch Apps for creativity.  At the show, attendees had the chance to try out the apps in the Adobe device bars and learn more from live theater presentations.

Step Out of the Office with Chevon Hicks and Adobe Ideas


Chevon Hicks is a Creative Director at Heavenspot , an independent digital creative agency that works closely with consumer brands, movie studios and ad agencies. Chevon not only runs this insane creative agency, but he also happens to be a very talented illustrator.
Recently, he created the gorgeous illustration (above) of Italian soccer player Mario Balotelli completely in Adobe Ideas on his iPad and a Wacom Bamboo stylus, all while away from his desktop. Adobe Ideas allowed Hicks to design anywhere using vectors, layers, and color themes. Although Chevon didn’t use desktop software in this case, Adobe Ideas allows you to put the finishing ‘touches’ (excuse the pun) on your work in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.

“For the first time in years, I felt like I was really ‘painting’ with vectors,” explained Chevon.
