Project Rigel to be available in late 2015, offer advanced features
[Updated with correction to erroreous CC subscription requirement] Adobe has chosen to withdraw its current photo editor for the iPad and Android tablets, Photoshop Touch, as of May 28, but has announced plans for new and supplemental technologies manifested in a number of apps to come later this year. A new photo editor, currently dubbed "Project Rigel," will offer greatly-improved speed, and was teased in a video that shows the program offering selective object removal, warping, and color swapping. The new app will be free of charge, unlike the $10 Touch app, and does not require a Creative Cloud subscription.
Retina display support, higher-rez image capacity, more
Adobe has updated its mobile photo-editing app Photoshop Touch to version 1.3, bringing Retina display support for the new iPad and new support for print-resolution images up to 12 megapixels with up to 16 layers. In addition, the program adds two new effects, a new three-finger tap, support for Apple's Photo Stream and overall smother performance in the organizer, tutorial browser and file picker. There is also a new "pixel nudging" mode for more precise movements.
App quickly removed from App Store
Adobe appears to have accidentally published its Photoshop Touch iPad app ahead of schedule. The utility was reportedly available early Sunday morning in the App Stores for Australia and New Zealand, however it was quickly removed and has yet to resurface.
