Under its Photoshop brand, Adobe Systems on Friday released a free photo-editing app for the iPhone, called, wait for it: Photoshop.com Mobile for iPhone.
Despite the awful title, it appears to be a useful stand-alone editor for iPhone pix. Adobe must want users to upload images to a free 2GB account at photoshop.com, hence the name. Still, it offers a number of interesting editing tools without the account.
(And no doubt Adobe must want to make sure that potential customers will understand that this isn't Photoshop for iPhone, as if it could be. Rather, it's just a bit of Photoshop and a push towards boosting photo sharing on its site.)
Here's a bit of the description from the App Store:
MORE FUN ON THE RUN
It's now easy to improve photos on your iPhone. Choose between a variety of one-touch effects, or simply drag your finger across the screen to quickly crop, rotate, or adjust a photos color. Get artistic by applying Filters like Soft Focus or Sketch. Never fear. Photoshop.com Mobile lets you undo and redo changes until you get the picture you want, and we always save a copy of the original photo.
