Like the free website Photoshop.com, Photoshop.com Mobile is meant for casual users, not the artists who do heavy-duty image manipulation on the desktop version of Photoshop. There’s a simple interface for doing things like cropping the photo, making it black-and-white, and adding effects like soft focus and a “sketch” mode that makes your photo look more like a drawing. (You probably don’t need much more in the way of advanced features, since there’s only so much that can be done with a blurry mobile photo.)
There are plenty of other photo manipulation apps for the iPhone, but Adobe has the advantage of the well-known Photoshop brand. Users can also upload and store photos at Photoshop.com, so the iPhone app should help promote the website, and vice versa.
Adobe previously released a similar application for Windows Mobile phones. It already made headlines once this week by bringing cool stuff to the iPhone — namely, announcing the ability for Flash web developers to convert their apps into an App Store-ready iPhone version.
