Earlybird no longer cutting it for your pictures?

Photo editing leader Adobe, who brought us the stripped down versions of Photoshop for tablets and phones in early 2013 like Photoshop Touch and Photoshop Express, just launched a series of new products that?s expected to offer a better editing interface. And this time, Android users get to join in the fun.

Introducing Photoshop Mix, an easy-to-use tool that allows phone users to alter photos with non-destructive edits. The new app works best along with Adobe?s ?Creative Cloud companions apps? like Brush CC, Shape CC and Colour CC.

The apps are expected to bring “connected mobile workflows to millions of creatives worldwide”.

How it works

Unlike the impressive Photoshop Touch, which was discontinued last month, Photoshop Mix seem to work well only by being complemented by the three Cloud companions. That?s not to say that Photoshop Mix is a mediocre product. The new app is actually a big improvement from the rather forgettable PS Express.

With the use of the Cloud Companions like Color CC, users can capture and edit color themes via mobile by simply pointing the camera on specific images. The themes can be synced to?Adobe Color service, making them accessible in?Illustrator Line, Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop.

Shape CC on the other hand, is able to use photos of real life objects to create editable vector images. These files can be synced to?Creative Cloud, and allows it to be used in Adobe?s desktop tools like Photoshop and Illustrator. Brush CC in the meantime, offers the ability to create and edit brushes for Photoshop.

All these advantages was exclusively enjoyed by iOS users, but with today?s announcement, Android users can now avail of the apps via Google Play. However, a paid subscription to Creative Cloud is still a must if you want to make use of the new Adobe interface in full capacity.

The announcement was made alongside Adobe?s disclosure of its own stock image website, Adobe Stock. The site offers millions of high-quality, royalty-free images and graphics.
