Touchup for iPad: Pro photo editing on a budget

By Mark Wilson

When it comes to desktop image editing, Photoshop is the undoubted king. However, when an iOS version of the popular editing software was released, many users were left a little disappointed. TouchUp for iPad is another image editing tool which not only makes it possible to make subtle adjustments to enhance imperfect pictures, but also to make more creative edits for greater impact.

The app can be used to work with any of the images in your photo library, but it also works in conjunction with Apple’s Camera Connection Kit so you can pull images straight from your digital camera.

The notion of painting with one’s finger may bring up recollections of art lessons at school, but it all works wonderfully well. Using tools such as the color paint brush, tint paint brush and hue shift, effects can be painted over an entire image, or focused on smaller areas.

The results that can be created are truly impressive and you have the option of sharing your finished masterpieces with others using email, Facebook and Twitter. Find out more by visiting the TouchUp for iPad review page.
