Photoshop Mobile App

By Bob on April 20, 2010 1:52 PM

The Photoshop Mobile app for the iPhone is one of the best photo apps I've found.


It's so easy to use that even a Boomer photo novice can turn ordinary iPhone photos into images worth sharing with family, friends and Facebook.  Best of all it's FREE.


Yeah, I know I had you at FREE. But even if it weren't, it'd still be a great little app.  Here's why.

The PS Mobile app lets you do all the FUN things to photos without the complexity of the full-scale Photoshop program. If you're like me, you have Photoshop on your office or home computer, but unless you're creating a gallery exhibition you'll never use most of the features.


PS Mobile lets you do the "basic" stuff like crop, rotate and flip photos all by just sliding your finger across the screen. That's right. No big honking manuals to read or instructions to download. If you can drag your finger across a screen, you've got the skill set to use PS Mobile.

The PS guys have even included some ATC (Ain't This Cool) features to this free app. Want to give your photo an Andy Warhol feel? PS Mobile will do that. How 'bout a nice border for your picture? There are plenty of options for you.


You can sketch effect a photo to make it look like a drawing. Add a sharp focus or soften it to where nobody but your mother could recognize you. There are plenty of combinations to keep you at this for a long time turning out great photo after great photo.


Spoiler Alert. This app is ADDICTIVE. Once you start playing with the photos in your camera roll, you'll have a hard time stopping. The PS Mobile App is available free at the iPhone App Store.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
