Adobe, the masterminds behind the ubiquitous Creative Suite of products, has just announced Adobe Touch Apps, a set of apps aimed at Honeycomb tablets, allowing users to perform sophisticated design, editing, and generally creative tasks from just about anywhere.
Perhaps the most exciting member of Adobe's new group of apps is Photoshop Touch, which is pretty much Photoshop on a tablet. The app allows for layer control, blending modes, curves adjustments, and almost everything you've come to expect from its desktop counterpart. Interestingly, Photoshop touch also makes it easy to grab a photo from your tablet's camera, Google Images, or social media sites such as Facebook.
Also included in Adobe's bevvy of new tablet apps are Adobe Collage, Proto, Kuler, and Debut.
Collage focuses around creating "modern moodboards" with a tablet, to convey the overall tone of a visual design project or photo session.
Proto allows for the creation of "interactive wireframes and prototypes using touch gestures," making use of a handy grid system to make design and creation that much simpler.
Kuler (a service that's been available online for a while now) allows the quick and snappy creation of color themes, as well as the ability to share color themes and search for new ones in the Kuler database.
Finally, Debut allows users to pull their Creative Suite work from the Adobe Creative Cloud, Google Images, their tablet's camera, or Flickr. This app also allows for layer control, and opens up the possibility of quickly presenting your desktop design work from just about anywhere, as well as adding notations on the fly.
Overall the new suite of apps sounds (and looks) amazing, and what's more exciting - CNET reports that the apps will be available exclusively for Android Honeycomb devices starting in November for the reasonable price of $10 each. In the meantime, head over to Adobe's blog for video demonstrations and full explanations of each app!
