by Reads (178)

Adobe has announced that it is going to make tablet integration a part of Photoshop CS5, promoting mobile development with the release of the Photoshop Touch Software Development Kit (SDK) and three companion apps.

Adobe Eazel AppThe Touch SDK will promote app creation by developers other than Adobe, but the Photoshop creators started things off with the announcements of Adobe Color Lava, Adobe Eazel, and Adobe Nav.

Color Lava provides a digital palette, allowing users to create custom color swatches that can be imported into Photoshop for use in other projects. Eazel allows for tablet finger painting, and also supports transfer to CS5 for full editing of the touch-based artwork. Adobe Nav will be useful for photographers, providing many of Photoshop’s base functions with the convenience of a tablet’s interface, as well as letting users browse through other projects or create new files.
