Without trying to bulk the entire functionality of the Photoshop application in the limited space available on touch screen devices, the programmers at Adobe are working on some interesting modalities to highlight the versatility of touch screens installed on mobile phones or graphic tablets.
Currently working to improve the productivity by extending the desktop and bringing frequently used Adobe Photoshop tools in an easily accessible place, Photoshop Companion applications turn your smartphone screen or iPad into a secondary screen for the computer you are working on.
The first concept application, demonstrated by using the screen of an iPad and the tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab, shows a version for the tablet of the function “Content Aware Fill”, available in Adobe CS5.
The second application is a digital color palette, used for selecting and mixing colors to be used on the connected PC.
The Photoshop Companion application is just one of Adobe’s attempts to introduce Adobe Photoshop devices on the market of mobile devices, with the latest being the free application Photoshop Express, iOS and Android devices.
