Adobe Photoshop for iPad will get real layer support in the future

During the Photoshop World conference's keynote, Adobe has unveiled some details about the next generation Photoshop for iPad, that's being worked on as we speak. Despite the recent feature additions to the current version of Photoshop for iOS, that's still an 'Express' app, and for good reasons -- although quite robust, it's nowhere near as capable as the desktop software going by the same...

Photoshop Express 2.0 for iOS adds $4 in-app purchase for noise reduction, self timer

For the grand old fee of $3.99 you can now have access to two very alluring photographic features on your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad 2: noise reduction for your low-light shots, and a self timer so that you can be in your own photos! These new features are available as an in-app purchase for the excellent (and free) Photoshop Express 2.0 for iOS. $3.99 seems a little bit expensive, but there's...

Photoshop.com gets featured albums in galleries, new profile pages

Adobe's Photoshop.com, the free online brother of the most-used photo editing suite, has received a couple of updates this week, focused on making the service more appealing to both its users and those who view their photos. First up, Photoshop.com galleries now each have a space in which your favorite album gets featured. This happens in a so-called 'hero carousel' that now shows up at the top...

Gimp Paint Studio expands GIMP with new brushes, presets

Looking for a way to expand GIMP's default toolset? Have a look at Gimp Paint Studio, a Creative Commons-licensed set of brushes and tool presets that add a wide range of new artistic options to your painter's toolbox. While GPS itself is a fantastic and functional add-on for GIMP, its creators hope that it also provides a spark to encourage others to experiment with the open source photo app's...

Got a messy Photoshop PSD? TidyPSD will fix it for $9

If you have a friend that's a graphic designer or photographer, and you're really strapped for gifts this Christmas, how about giving them a TidyPSD? For the meager (well, fairly meager) price of $9, TinyPSD will take any unorganized, jumbled-up PSD and turn it into a thing of Zen-like beauty. Sequentially numbered layers will be replaced with names! Unordered chaos will be replaced with layer...

Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9 bundle for Mac and Windows released

At a rather awesome price of $149 (or $119 after mail-in rebate!!!), the latest cut-down versions of Photoshop and Premiere are now available for both Windows and Mac as a bundle. Individually, each app costs $99. Photoshop Elements 9 is adapted from Photoshop CS5, and it features the delicious 'Content Aware' Fill and Spot Healing that photographers the world over have no doubt been waiting...

Adobe Photoshop Express for Android taken for a spin, leaves me a little unsatisfied

From the outset, a smartphone photo manipulation app is a fantastic idea. Thanks to the turtleneck mafia, awful-and-noisy-built-in-camera photography has become something far bigger than most of us expected -- who could've predicted that the iPhone would become the most popular camera on Flickr in under two years? But now, ladies and gentlemen, it 's the turn of the Android. With dozens of new...

Adobe updates Photoshop.com, releases Express Editor, Organizer and Android app

When Adobe released an updated Photoshop app for iOS devices, I was more than a little green with envy. I own an Android phone, y'see -- and I wanted in on the action! I needn't have worried though, because as of today, Adobe has released an updated and shiny Photoshop Express for Android app. I'll review it later today. Also released on Photoshop.com today are the redesigned Express Editor,...

DLS Review: Picasa 3.8 released, now with Picnik editor

Picasa 3.8 was unleashed upon the world a couple of days ago. It brings with it several major features, such as Batch Upload, something called "Face Movie," which creates an animation out of a series of images of the same person, and last but certainly not least, Picnik photo editing. That's right – Picasa can now upload your photo seamlessly to Picnik, and it allows you to edit it there,...

In a pinch, PSD Viewer might save you... or it might not

Ah, viewers! Whether you love the fact that they exist, or hate the fact that we live in a world that necessitates them, file viewers are a vital part of any computer user's tool kit. The number of times I've seen sent a Microsoft Word file and not been able to open it... ugh! Fortunately I have Photoshop, but I'm sure there are lots of people out there that don't -- that's where PSD Viewer...

FotoSketcher applies cool, artsy effects to your photos

It's no GIMP, but free utility FotoSketcher has a few neat tricks up its sleeve and it's very easy to use. You won't find any subtle red eye adjustments here. In fact, there's not even a way to select a portion of an image. These are brute force, full-image effect filters. Simply select an effect, set some parameters, choose a frame, and apply. That's it. There's undo functionality (thankfully),...

Photoshop CS5's new HUD Color Picker, and a neat helper app that enables auto-saving

Adobe Photoshop CS5 has a new feature that digital artists have been demanding for years: it's called the HUD Color Picker and I'm sure it's making Photoshoppers dizzy with excitement. That is if they even know it exists -- you see, the HUD (heads-up display) is buried under a truly atrocious shortcut: Shift+Alt+Right Click. Still, if you have Photoshop CS5, try it -- you can see it in the...

Easily import and export your Adobe Photoshop CS4 and CS5 workspace settings with this script

Rejoice! No longer must you hack and slash at your preferences folder to backup or share your workspace -- there's a script to do it for you! Simply grab the script, unzip it, then Files>Scripts>Browse in Photoshop. The ingenious engineers at Adobe are obviously hard at work on CS6, and this script is likely an early example of what we can expect in the next iteration of the Creative...

Computer solves 400-piece puzzle in 3 minutes; scary implications for photo manipulation

Following on from a New Scientist article that was written a few days ago, I ended up on the website of Taeg Sang Cho -- a graduate student at MIT. He's been working on a bunch of advanced imaging algorithms -- with gifts and grants from big names like Microsoft, Adobe and Google. His recent work -- three research papers -- is all about content-aware manipulation of photos. I'm struggling to...

Adobe Camera Raw 6.1 arrives; automatic lens correction finally here!

If you use your digital camera for anything other than family or touristy snaps, you've probably run into the raw image format. If you haven't heard of raw, think of it as a bigger, high-quality JPEG file. Unlike JPEG, raw files contain a lot more data, enabling you to manipulate your photos a lot more easily. With JPEGs a lot of data is lost -- if you shoot raw photos, you have more choice over...
