Photoshop Touch Review

Nepalese Village boys drinking warm milk

As the news about Adobe releasing the app Photoshop Touch was announced I had mixed emotions. I was excited to discover what the app would offer and curious to why the decision to save images at a low res was made.
This morning after it downloaded I tapped on the icon and was impressed to discover that Tutorials were available. After following along with a few, I decided to give it a try on some of my own images.
Just like any application, with so many features, I found it difficult to navigate at first. I found myself thinking how much it felt like processing with Photoshop CS5 on my computer even though I rarely process that way anymore. Currently, I am so use to processing with other applications that I felt I had to force myself to concentrate. I did however, with the help of the tutorials, learn how to navigate through the app's many features fairly quickly. However there is much more to learn and understand.
The question to why the decision to release this application as one that saves at a low res is very puzzling to me. Thankfully there are applications that do allow up resing for those of us who wish to print our images. However for posting the low res works just fine.
