Not in Sweden either. Why is it so hard to understand that the World Wide Web and the corresponding market is worldwide? Should be included in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Well looks like the relationship between Apple and Adobe is warming up! May be Flash on its way?

I'll bet the farm that Adobe used their new iPhone app exporting tool in Flash CS5 to port this.

Hmm... at first I thought it was like "SketchBook Mobile" and very similar to desktop style of photoshop :rolleyes:

Nevertheless, it's free :D

Not available in Denmark, either. What a shame - looks like a lot of fun to me. I love Photoshop.

Sweet! I didn't even know about Photoshop.com and I have PS. I just set myself up on Photoshop.com and now I am going to download the app.

After using this to edit a photo, I'm going to have to say I'm sticking with Photogene and Sketchbook mobile. This app is useful for maybe one or two things, but seems rather gimicky to me. I'd happily pay $10-20 for a useful, streamlined editing suite from Adobe for the iPhone. Things that fix the problems with photos on mobile phones, mainly image color casting, low contrast, and sharpness. Photoshop is the most powerful image editing tool for full size computers, and it should also be the best for mobile devices.

This is a fine product, just very simple and not as useful as it could be. I've been waiting a long time for this. Too bad. There's always updates though.

I was able to download it... So far so good. Like the layout and the different effect it has.

The Bad: It's very limited on feature (for now)..

The Good: It's supper fast, great UI, FREE!!!

Overall: I suggest you download it.. I'm sure it'll be updated with more features! GO ADOBE!

Yep...very limited. I guess for free it's not that bad. And it does work fast, which is impressive. Still... I would use a lot of other apps over this.

I would love a paid PRO version of this with more features.

Photoshop Elements 8 interfaces with Photoshop.com, too, and by default, assumes you're going to automatically upload whatever you do in PE to a 2gb storage area on Photoshop.com.

So ... :D ... be careful when you edit those porn pix you copy'n'paste from the net that they don't accidentally get shared on the service.

PE 8 is available now for download from (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopelwin/?promoid=BPDEM) Adobe.com; those wanting boxed versions will have to wait several weeks for the official launch date of 23 October.

The description doesn't make clear if you can use it locally, i.e., without Photoshop.com. Can you?

You can ... PhotoShop.com is optional .. and you have to sign-in to use it.

Yep. No prob.

As others have said, this is limited, but it's pretty cool and the UI is excellent.

As far as more options, let's face it. We're stuck with a 3MP camera in our iPhones. No matter how much editing the app lets you do, it won't let you take a better quality pic, so IMO, this is more than adequate for basic stuff.

That's a nice theory, but Photogene already exists to show us how more features are very cool and useful.

This Photoshop program is pretty cool, but I'll continue to recomend Photogene to people. Adobe waited too long to put out a program that only does what this one does.

EDIT: I should say that its simplicity is a PLUS for people who want something simple. In that way, this program is good. But that's not what the name "Photoshop" implies to me. Adobe should have named this fun little free program something else and saved the 'Photoshop' name for another program that would take on Photogene head-to-head.

Point taken. But for my use, it's a waste of money (even if it is just $3) to pay for an app that will do more than basic editing on the iPhone. If I need more than what PS Mobile does, I'll transfer the pic to my computer and use a real editing program.

And I agree about the Photoshop name. They probably should've called this "PS Mobile Lite" or something similar.

Here is hoping that they use this as a stepping stone and the updates will make this one of the better photo editing programs for the iPhone. I can see this being added on to in the very near future. Well at least I am hoping so!

Hahaaaaaaa . . I am so gonna say it. I told you so. For everyone that said Photoshop on a tablet is stupid. If it can be used just fine on an iphone, I think it can be used on a larger tablet device. Like I said it's all about progression people, not stagnancy. Can't wait for the tablet. :D

Also not in NZ. Hopeless, as usual.

I just went to check out Photogene and for this weekend (October 9-11) it's on sale for 99 cents! Maybe the PS competition is paying off for us.

I downloaded and played with it. I expected at least to have a "levels" adjust. Not much functionality at all, and the rotate/flip doesn't work. Maybe it will grow.

I can't be bothered to purchase a competing app since I do any editing of iPhone photos in Photoshop proper, but the tools are pretty useful, especially crop. Can't complain for free.

I SURE HOPE NOT!!! Flash can rot and I hope HTML 5 kills it forever everywhere! :rolleyes:

This app is fun though. I wonder though if Apple will add functionality like this into the photos app eventually to make it more like iPhoto! :D

Very cool app. Fast saves, fast loading, etc. I just hope they add more effects. ;)

The load speeds are ok on my 3GS. Maybe it's doesn't have the most functionality, but the interface is what makes me use it. The best app is the one you use (a take on "the best camera is the one you have on you").

What an incredibly limited and effectively useless app. Can't believe I bothered logging in to my US account to d/l this. Deleted straight away.

To me the value would be receiving a photo of arbitrary size in email or on my own FTP site, editing it for a blog or email or web page, then sending it along.

Can I email stuff to my FTP site yet?

Speaking of which what is the best text editor/FTP upload combo for iPhone right now?

Adobe hasn't forgotten about those outside the US-I received a tweet from their Photoshop.com Twitter:
"Please stay tuned - we're exploring ways to offer the iPhone app globally!"

I imagine it's something horrendously complex and technical that they've got to overcome to do this, along the lines of ticking the "Make App Available Globally" box when they submit to App Store. :rolleyes:

Well, the iphone app may be limited, but Photoshop.com is a very good cloud site. I just signed up.
