Adobe launched a new app called Photoshop Fix, which is a photo retouching program that can be used on iPads and iPhones.
The company’s Adobe Photoshop is mostly used by professional digital designers, but regular people who only want to retouch their photos a little may find it too complex for their needs.
Monday at the Adobe MAX 2015 conference in Los Angeles, Adobe released the Photoshop Fix app, a free photo editor that will be accessible to anyone who has an iPhone or an iPad. The new app is much easier to use and it caters to people who only want to retouch their photos a little.
Adobe has incorporated some of the most powerful features from Adobe Photoshop into the Photoshop Fix app. For instance there is the Liquify tool, which is used to subtly or drastically distort the photos, and the Healing Brush, which retouches images by fixing any unwanted blemishes and by smoothing out the skin, or any other imperfections.
Photoshop Fix also has tools which adjust the colours, lighting, sharpness (and so on), of a photo. Users are also able to focus on a particular part of the photo, where they can adjust the lighting or any other of the above mentioned things, and more.
The new app also includes a tool which identifies people’s faces in photos and adjusts them automatically, by subtly changing the angle or the size of the eyes, chin, or nose. However, people should not overuse this tool, because they might end up looking not like a real person. When Adobe showcased the new Photoshop Fix feature, some people who attended the event found it a little creepy, specifically because people can turn into alien looking creature when they overuse the feature.
In order to download the Photoshop Fix app, people do not have to subscribe to Creative Cloud first, a subscription service for which users have to pay monthly for.
The Photoshop Fix app will also be available for Android users sometime in the future, Adobe announced.
Adobe released other simplified app versions of some of its more complex programs. Lightroom Mobile and Premiere Clip are two other apps that iPhone and iPad users can benefit from.
