Adobe Photoshop Touch updated for Kindle Fire HD, Nexus 7
Posted on 29 Nov 2012 at 11:00, by
Following impressive sales of both devices, which use a smaller display than most Android tablets, Adobe has refined its Photoshop Touch image editing software to improve usability on 7in tablets. Not all devices will be able to take advantage of the changes, however: Adobe's modified user interface requires a tablet with a minimum screen resolution of 1024x600. As a result, while the Kindle Fire with its 1024x600 screen and the Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7 with their 1280x800 screens will be able to use the software, older or cheaper tablets with lower resolution displays will be left out in the cold.
As well as improved compatibility for popular 7in Android tablets, the latest version of the software also includes smoother brush strokes for more control, new Lens Flare and Stamp Pattern effects, improved grid layout, better sharing of edited images through third-party apps including Facebook and Twitter, a new shortcut to access the last five picked colours, and numerous bug fixes to improve the stability of the software.
Photoshop Touch is available to buy now from the Google Play store, priced at £6.99.
