Adobe’s New ‘Project Rigel’, says Goodbye to Photoshop Touch App

Yesterday, Adobe announced that as of next week Photoshop Touch will no longer be available in iTunes, Google Play and other app libraries. If you have previously purchased this product, it will still work but Adobe will no longer update it.  The last major update to Photoshop Touch was in 2012. I reviewed both the iPad and Android versions of this app for DPreview in 2011 and 2012, (see here).

We are excited about Adobe’s codenamed ‘Project Rigel’, there are plans for image retouching on a mobile device extending up to 50-megapixels , presumably via the cloud.

Take a look at Adobe’s sneak peek mobile retouching video below…

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.

    I like Photoshop Touch app a lot.
    I use it quite often for task that other apps cannot handle. It runs well and rarely crashes. It will be missed. The GUI is very similar to Photoshop. So the learning curve was easy.
    That said, from the video above, I can already do these effects with other apps presently available app’s out there. Doing 50 meg file system is impressive. I deduct that he is using the latest iPad.
    I figure they probably will take advantage of the processing power and real estate from the iPad Pro due next fall. Look forward to it.
