Adobe is getting serious about mobile and has today announced plans for a tonne of new mobile apps that will work with its “Creative Cloud” products – like Photoshop, Lightroom and Premiere.
Here’s what’s new:
- Photoshop Sketch (sounds like a drawing app)
- Photoshop Mix (mobile compositing of images)
- Lightroom Mobile (a mobile version of the desktop photo management/tweaking software)
- Illustrator Draw (for vector drawing)
- Illustrator Line (a precision drawing app)
- Adobe Premiere Clip (sounds like a rival for mobile iMovie)
- Adobe Brush CC (design new brushes for photoshop – including the ability to turn photos into brushes)
- Adobe Shape CC (turn a photo into a vector image for photoshop and the like – sounds like it could be very interesting indeed)
- Adobe Colour CC (and a colour picker for “capturing colours”).
All of the apps will work with the creative cloud, which should mean that when you save stuff it will save them across devices – meaning that it should be easy to shoot an image, turn it into a vector drawing and have it show up on your desktop copy of Photoshop to play with.
At the moment the apps only appear to be available for iOS – we’ll let you know if they make it over to Android.
