Adobe has announced that its photo editing system for smartphones, the Photshop.com Mobile editor, is now available for Android application developers.
Adobe said third-party application developers now have access to the Photoshop.com Mobile for Android 1.1 editor. In addition, Photoshop.com Mobile for Android 1.1 provides users of the Google Mobile operating system with quick and easy photo-editing and sharing capabilities. Photoshop.com Mobile for Android 1.1 also enhances the camera phone experience by providing a collection of new editing effects.
Photoshop.com Mobile for Android 1.1 advances mobile photo editing with effects such as Vibrant, to boost photo colors, and Pop, which brings a -pop art' style to images. The Soft Black and White, and Warm Vintage tools can be used to add a classic and aged effect to photos. With one touch, users can also apply changes to a photo's look and feel with Vignette Blur, White Glow and Rainbow. In addition, all edits and changes can be undone so users can apply effects and know that their original photo is safe.
"Photoshop.com Mobile is the -go-to' photo editing application for iPhone and Android devices," said Doug Mack, vice president and general manager of Digital Imaging and Rich Media Solutions at Adobe, in a statement. "Unlike iPhone, the Android platform allows us to make the Photoshop.com editor broadly available to developers so they can provide it within any application they are working on. Photoshop functionality can then easily be accessed from an online auction, real estate or social media application so users can quickly fix photos and make them look their best, before being showcased."
Meanwhile, a new Android-focused developer site now allows Android developers to leverage the Photoshop.com Mobile for Android 1.1 editor to create other application workflows. The Website, found at http://mobile.photoshop.com/android/developers.html, provides access to Adobe technology and promotes an ecosystem where developers have more creative freedom when developing their software, Adobe officials said
Adobe Photoshop.com Mobile for Android 1.1 is available as a free download in all countries with Android Market in English only. To retrieve the update, launch the Android Market application via the Android device and search for "photoshop.com." More information on Photoshop.com Mobile for Android 1.1 can be found here.
