New app crops, adjusts exposure, adds effects

Adobe has launched Mobile for iPhone, bringing a simplified version of its flagship software to the iPhone and iPod touch. The new app can crop, flip and rotate photos, or adjust exposure, saturation and tint, with option of converting to black-and-white. Two filters are included: Sketch renders a photo as a drawing, while Soft Focus simulates its namesake lens effect. Exposure and filter adjustments are generally made with swipe commands.

Some one-touch effects are included, such as Vibrant, which saturates colors. Pop presents a multi-image rendering with alternating colors, while Border adds a white frame, and Vignette Blur softens edges while keeping the center sharp. Other effects include Warm Vintage, Rainbow, White Glow and Soft Black and White.

Completed images can be uploaded to, where up to 2GB of files can be stored for free. The website allows users to further edit, host and share photos.

The app also supports undos and redos, and can save an original copy of a photo at the beginning of the editing process. It requires iPhone 2.0 firmware, and is a free download from the App Store.
