It is been over a year since Adobe launched Photoshop Fix on iOS to make it easier for folks to touch up their portrait photos. The free app finally made it to Android. These great Adobe mobile Android apps now include Photoshop Sketch, Photoshop Fix and the Adobe Comp. They already released things like Lightroom and the less useful Adobe Photoshop Express for Android. The release brings greater parity between Android and their iOS offerings.
With Photoshop Sketch, you can draw using a great selection of tools like…
- ink brush
- soft pastels
- thick acrylic brush
- watercolor paintbrushes
Sketch also handles syncing with other Adobe mobile Android apps and the desktop Creative Cloud apps.
The layers in the Sketch let you add more than one image to a single creation. This app handles these layers easily.
When you are finished, you can export them to Adobe Illustrator or one of other desktop apps to finish things up.
It’s a new photo editor that focuses on the quick and easy adjustments to photos, portraits, specifically selfies, and other shots including squishy humans. The ‘liquify’ and ‘smooth’ tools are just designed to allow for fairly direct face and body improvements for those who really want them, while more general image-wide filters and adjustments are present more or less to make the app competitive with editor built into your smartphone. And because we live in the Instagram age, it includes vignettes and defocus tool. More standard photo adjustments like spot heal, red eye reduction, and even a clone stamp are also present.
Here is a list of some of the things you can do with Fix, one of the most exciting of the new Adobe mobile Android apps.
- Edit the color and exposure of shots
- Remove the unwanted people in your photo’s background
- Get rid of distracting the elements in a landscape or portrait
- Blur part of an image
- Sync up with other Adobe mobile Android apps or even Adobe Creative Cloud desktop applications
- Liquefy part of the screen
- Smooth out edges
Adobe Comp (Free) lets you create layouts for mobile applications, websites, print projects or anything that needs some ‘desktop publishing’ on your Adobe tablet or phone. When finished putting together the layout, export it to finish up in one of the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop applications used for making these kinds of the projects. For example, export a magazine cover to Photoshop or InDesign. Send a new project to Illustrator to the finish up a cool drawing.
The app also syncs with the other Adobe mobile Android apps. That way you can just pull in an edited image from Fix and use it in your layout in Comp.
