As expected, mobile and touch capabilities were the star of the show at Adobe’s Keynote this morning. The majority of the presentation revolved around product demos of their mobile apps, some of which are new as of today. Photoshop Mix, a mobile app that caters to non-destructive photo editing on the go, looks surprisingly strong for composite photography, and is now available on iPhone (iOS7 or greater). All of the mobile apps are deeply integrated into their desktop versions thanks to Adobe’s Creative Profile, which makes all your projects accessible throughout all your Adobe programs, mobile or desktop.
Apple products: love them or not, there’s no denying that they’ve made a tremendous impact on photography today. If you don’t own an iPhone, chances are you most likely own a Mac. If you own neither then you’re in more of a minority than you’d think. Considering how important the company’s become to the photography world in general, the news that came out of Apple’s WWDC keynote today is set to make another mark in how many of us deal with our work. As I’m writing this post, Craig Federighi of Apple is wrapping up the announcement of the new iOS 8. Both the mobile operating software, along with the new update to Mac OSX, were both just recently introduced at the keynote, and the changes they’re bringing to how we work with photos on our Apple devices are far overdue.
