Photoshop Mix 1.1: New Features Thanks to Your Feedback

About a year ago, a few members of the Photoshop team and some really talented folks in our Beijing office embarked on a mission to turn a prototype into a shipping project.  The team quickly grew and together we raced to deliver Photoshop Mix 1.0 alongside all of the new desktop applications at our June launch event in New York. Photoshop Mix – a free iPad application focused on selective edits, basic compositing and a little bit of Photoshop magic – has since enjoyed a tremendous number of downloads…thank you!  In the race to launch, we left a few things undone, but with a tremendous effort from our team and a LOT of input from our users (again, thank you!) today we’re proud to announce Photoshop Mix 1.1.

1.1 might sound like a minor update, but it satisfies the majority of feedback we’ve heard from in-app feedback, research and reviews.  Of course, the Mix team couldn’t help but sprinkle in a few things above and beyond.

Photoshop Mix 1.1

Here’s what’s new:

Undo/redo

In Mix 1.0, you committed or canceled by task; now in Mix 1.1 you can apply multiple undos or redos within a task.

Swap image

Mix has amazing power when it comes to creating simple composites, but if you had the wrong image in the foreground or background in 1.0, you needed to start over. No longer.  1.1 introduces image swapping; you can simply select the thumbnail of the image you want to re-order and drag it backwards or forwards.

Panorama Support

Mix can now open larger files, even panoramic images.

Panoramic Images

Performance

Mix takes full advantage of the GPU and is very fast on recent iPads, but we’ve tuned it for even better performance in 1.1, especially when it comes to loading a project and live previews.

Full-resolution

Mix 1.0 saved full resolution files to Creative Cloud, but down-sampled files to your local camera roll; Mix 1.1 now saves full resolution files locally.

Dropbox

Mix 1.0 supported opening files from Adobe Creative Cloud, Lightroom Mobile and Facebook…for 1.1 we’ve extended support to include Dropbox.

Drop Box Support

 

PNG

Mix now supports opening PNG files and saving PNG files when the image has a mask or transparent area.

Photoshop Express integration

Photoshop Express is an extremely popular mobile image editing application; it can do things which Mix cannot and Mix can do things which Express cannot. Now they can trade files seamlessly via the Open With functionality. Express opens masked Mix files as transparent images.

Language

Mix 1.1 introduces support for Italian, Spanish, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Traditional Chinese.

 

As you can see, the Photoshop Mix team is passionate about responding to your feedback and expanding the capabilities of the app.  Please download 1.1 and let us know what you think in the comments, the iTunes store or the in-app feedback mechanism.

Happy Mixing,

TAGGED AS: ,

Sounds very nice. Now how about some support for Android tablet users? It would be great to have Photoshop Mix and Lightroom Mobile for Android.

    Thanks for your note Mike. Adobe has a rich history of multi-platform development and mobile won’t be an exception. We’re just getting started – thanks for your patience.

I would add a vote for Android and suggest iPad/Android parity be made a reality in the near future.

Thanks

Hi, thank you for this creation, I find it a great option to keep the magic of photoshop expanding and practical to work with on the move! #Thank you honeyB:)#.

This looks seriously cool. Only hoping that an Android version is in the mix soon. Love the dropbox support.

Sounds like a great partner for photoshop express – looking forward to Android version- keep up the good work!

I agree that there should be Android support but I know that challenge. iOS is just so much easier to develop natively on than Android. This is exactly the challenge our company is facing right now. With that said, the app is currently no longer available in the app store. I can search for it and it is there, but when you try to install it, it give the error that it is no longer available.

thank you for this creation

The new features are really awesome and they help me to complete my projects.

An android version would be nice. Particularly since there are more android user in than ios.
