When I purchased my first iPad several years ago, the first art painting app I installed was ArtRage. At the time it offered, and yet continues to have, the most realistic oil painting brushes of any painting app for the iPad or iPhone. As I use it so frequently on my iPad, I was eager to use the Mac OS X version on my new iMac.

For ArtRage 4 users, there is a free upgrade to the 4.5 version and that is the version I am reviewing. ArtRage 4.5 is 64-bit and supports Mac (Intel only) OS X 10.6 or later and Windows 7, 8, and Vista (not Windows XP).

Adobe Photoshop Touch
Review

On April 11, 2012, in Apps, Features, iPad 2, Photography, Review, Tablet, by Suzé Gilbert

Adobe Photoshop Touch for iPad
Developer: Adobe, Inc.
Platform: iPad 2 and New iPad
Version 1.1.0
$9.99US
 Many photographers, myself included, have been patiently waiting for Adobe to develop a powerful photo-editing app for the iPad to compare with Photoshop. Adobe launched Photoshop Touch last year for the Android platform and Photoshop Touch is now available for the iPad. It is compatible with the iPad 2 and New iPad but the iPad 1 is not supported. As an image editor Adobe included several terrific features gleaned from Photoshop that are not currently found in other photo-editing apps.
