Adobe updates its iOS version of Photoshop Express, adds in-app purchase options for photo effects

Adobe Systems this weekend updated its iOS version of Adobe Photoshop Express, adding in-app purchase options to assist photo takers with special effects, borders, etc.

The app update brings three different in-app purchase options:

  • Adobe Effects Pack brings users after photo effects – the pack costs $2.99
  • Adobe Camera Pack includes noise reduction, a self-timer, and an auto review feature – the pack costs $4.99
  • Adobe Border Pack introduces 40 borders and frames – the effects pack costs $1.99
Adobe is playing catch up here now that Apple has launched a version of iPhoto for its iOS devices. While Apple's photo solution is priced at $4.99, Adobe has been giving away its Photoshop Express app.

Adobe recently launched a more feature rich version of Photoshop for the iPad with Adobe Photoshop Touch. That app costs $9.99 and was initially without higher resolution support, but an update upped the resolution support to 2048x2048, though the default is still at 1600x1600.

Adobe has also launched today a mobile app for Adobe Presenter. PresenterMobile supports its software solution that assists users enhance PowerPoint files into interactive presentations and training courses by use of a plug-in. Adobe Presenter 7 costs $500 for the PC.
