Adobe has some announcements of interest for iOS photographers at its Adobe Max conference today in Los Angeles.

The first product of interest if Adobe Photoshop Fix, offering features from it’s desktop Photoshop software.

adobe 2Photoshop Fix empowers you to do serious image retouching and restoration on your iPad or iPhone. Heal, smooth, liquify, lighten and make other edits and adjustments that give you the precise look you’re after. Sign in to Adobe Creative Cloud to access edited photos directly within other Adobe mobile and desktop apps to further refine them or use them in other creative projects — it’s all powered by Adobe CreativeSync, which lets you send the edits directly to Photoshop if you wish.

Photoshop Fix is available for both the iPad and iPhone.

The second product is Capture CC. The app combines features that were available in other Adobe apps like Adobe Brush, Adobe Shape, Adobe Color and Adobe Hue, making these tools accessible in just one too. Using Adobe’s Creative Sync technology, edits on one device transfer to any other iOS device or your desktop or laptop.

Adobe is also updating several other apps, including Indesign and Illustrator. Premiere Pro CC and Photoshop CC are also getting minor updates. These updates will appear before the end of the year, while the iOS apps are available today in the Apple App Store.

On the iOS side, Adobe still has a lot of apps that can be further combined.

These iOS apps are free, but not fully functional without a Creative Crowd subscription.

I’ll be putting the iOS apps through their paces to see how iPhoneographers can use them in their workflows.

Adobe is moving quickly to blending desktop, laptop and mobile apps, with a goal to making creation seamless.
