TUAW reports that Adobe’s video training resources now support iOS-friendly streaming to iPhones, iPods and iPads. Creative pros can now learn new tricks as they commute on train, go for a lunch break and so forth. Another tidbit comes from MacRumors which profiles Photoshop Remote, the first third-party iPad app built using the Photoshop Touch SDK.
Developer Shawn Welch, the brains behind Photoshop Remote, revealed the program just a few hours after Adobe launched the new Photoshop Touch SDK, that lets third-party developers write apps for smartphones and tablets that interact with desktop Photoshop. Shawn’s sample iPad app lets you manipulate images and active Photoshop installations on your network.
It’s a “heads-up-display for all of the Photoshop CS 5.5 installations on your local network”, he wrote in a blog post. The program, up for a May release, features a handy dashboard with live thumbnails representing connected clients.
You can batch-open or save the same image across all active computers, fine-tune Photoshop tools on a per-seat basis, directly manipulate open documents in Photoshop on the iPad’s multitouch display and more.
