Adobe Photoshop has finally made its way to the iPhone, available now for free at the iTunes app store. Before you get too excited, this is not the same application that you'd spend hundreds of dollars for on the desktop, but Adobephotoshop.com Mobile.
We downloaded it and gave it a try. It's a subset of Adobe's Photoshop.com free image editing website, but this mobile version gives you even fewer tools. Take a look at the gallery and see the complete toolset, which includes cropping, limited canned effects, exposure manipulation, and a few other image editing tricks.
The application seems like a seed Adobe has planted in the App Store, a mere stem of an app thus far. There's surprisingly few things you can do with it, and it's beaten out by other iPhone apps already available, particularly the excellent PhotoGene we've been using for the past few months.
We're just wondering why there's no Flash capability on the iPhone, yet there's now a version of Photoshop, however limited. But we're not complaining — for a free app, what did we expect? Adobe Photoshop on the iPhone is off to a good start.
