Photoshop Touch for Android gets new functionality
Export to PNG and PSD functionality
When choosing Save to Camera Roll or Share by E-mail or on uploading to Creative Cloud, you can now save to either JPEG, PSD, or PNG.
Improved image quality of images saved to the local Camera Roll/Gallery
Save to Camera Roll saves out JPEGs which are compressed with max quality now instead of medium quality.
Improved compatibility with Android 4.0
This update addresses some issues related to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) compatibility; including resolving the in-app log-in issues with the Adobe Creative Cloud website.
General bug fixes and performance enhancements
Several performance and memory handling improvements (including Pinch & Zoom and Refine Edge).
Back button improvements
Standard Android Back button is accessible when it wasn’t previously. This button supports returning prior to screens and can be used for easier folder navigation.
As for the iOS release, I still can’t provide a specific release date, but rest assured folks are working hard to get it out ASAP.
Feedback wanted for Adobe Revel (formerly Carousel)
From PM Sumner Paine:
Calling all active and enthusiastic Revel users!
The team at Adobe is looking for people to join our prerelease program. We’re working on new features and we need your feedback and help with testing.
If you are a Revel subscriber and you have it on all three device types (iPad, iPhone, Mac) just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief explanation covering 4 things:
- Your favorite thing about Revel
- The most important thing that’s missing from Revel today
- List of devices where you have Revel installed (e.g., MacBook Air, iPhone 4, etc.)
- Names of other photo apps you use on your desktop computer, if any
There’s limited space in the prerelease program so we can’t accept everyone who applies, but we look forward to your submissions.
Sumner Paine, product manager
