Adobe Photoshop Touch is now available for the iPad 2. Adobe made the image-editing app official at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and the app is already available to be downloaded from Apple's App Store.

The photo editing app contains some of Photoshop's core features, as well as a few unique features designed for creating content and sharing it from a tablet. As you might expect, users can apply effects to photos they have taken, touch up photos, as well as combine several photos into a layered image.

A "Scribble Selection Tool" within the app also allows users to erase objects with a scribbling gesture, exploiting Photoshop's "Refine Edge technology" to identify fiddly areas of images. The app also has both Facebook and Google image search, to help users find images quickly and share images they create with others.

In addition to Photoshop Touch, Adobe expects to release several other touch apps for the iPad in the coming months: Adobe Collage for mood boards, Adobe Debut for presenting and reviewing creative work, Adobe Ideas for sketching, Adobe Kuler for exploring color themes, and Adobe Proto for website and mobile app prototyping.

Adobe Photoshop Touch is available now from the App Store for US$9.99. Adobe has also made available a number of tutorials for the app to help you get started editing on your tablet.

"In addition to Photoshop Touch, Adobe expects to release several other touch apps for the iPad in the coming months: " is a bit disengenuous and confusing. Since "Photoshop Touch" is **NOT** for "the iPad" (it's for "the iPad 2"), the sentence provides no useful information to iPad 1 owners.

This report shows a lack of responsible reporting: you should have asked *why* it's restricted to iPad 2's (and, presumably, any newer models forthcoming).
