Photoshop Touch for iPad updated with Retina Display support and more

Adobe Photoshop Touch, the robust image editing app especially designed for the iPad (2nd and 3rd gen) has just been updated to version 1.3, with support for the Retina display being added. This means that all your photographs and images will look even more spectacular on the new iPad. More importantly, especially for photographers and those serious about their work, Photoshop Touch now supports images up to 12 megapixels. The previous size limitation was a huge downer for those who wished to work with high-resolution images. Also new with the update are 2 new effects (shred and colorize), support for Apple Photo Stream and a new three-finger tap gesture tap to toggle 100% view. Check out the complete list of what’s new after the break, along with 2 intro videos to the Photoshop Touch app.

Brushes in Review – Dali Finger to the Rescue

We gots an artist in the house!

We gots an artist in the house!

In the strain of all great artists, I subjected myself to self torture and then re-created shigzeo as only I know him (me). Brushes, by Steve Sprang is that method and the outcome is the Monet/Van Gogh you see above.

I did not use the 3x ‘how to draw a face’ tutorial that can be seen after the jump (didn’t need it), nor did I apply learning that I received from school or study. Simply, I let the artist within me flow to the nearly excellent canvass that is my iPod Touch.
