Adobe is kicking things up a notch on the iPad 2 with the launch of Photoshop Touch.  It’s a more robust version of the original Photoshop app for the iPad, yet still remains very watered down compared to the Mac or PC version.  That said, it still looks to be a versatile tool that is probably fit for any one interested in performing some quick edits with a touchscreen interface and later manipulating them on their computer.

Some of the big features are the ability to pull images directly from the web – you can perform a Google search directly in the app itself – as well as capture photos using the iPad 2′s camera.  A scribble feature allows you to quickly remove select parts of an image simply by dragging your finger in the general area, while popular Photoshop features, such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters let you create “mind-blowing images.”  Unfortunately, image resolution caps at 1600×1600, but thanks to Adobe’s Creative Cloud you can instantly access your edited photos directly on computer in Photoshop.

Photoshop Touch is only available for the iPad 2.  You can buy it now for $9.99 in the iTunes App Store.
