Adobe prematurely launched Adobe Photoshop Touch for the iPad 2 in several worldwide stores this evening, but the app has since been pulled.

Adobe first announced the product back in October, 2011 alongside 5 other upcoming tablet applications. Adobe Photoshop Touch is described as a tool to "let you quickly combine images, apply professional effects, share the results with friends and family through social networking sites like Facebook, and more".

Features listed include:
- Use popular Photoshop features designed for the tablet such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters to create mind-blowing images.
- Use your iPad camera to fill an area on a layer with the unique camera fill feature.
- Select part of an image to extract by scribbling with the Scribble Selection tool. With Refine Edge, use your fingertip to capture even hard-to-select image elements, like hair, with ease.
- Search and acquire images with the integrated Google Image Search.
- Share images on Facebook and view comments right within the app.
- Browse an inspirational gallery for the styles and results you'd like to achieve. Then follow step-by-step tutorials to easily learn techniques the pros use for great-looking results.
- Use AirPrint for wireless printing of Photoshop Touch projects.
- Upload projects to Adobe Creative Cloud* and open layered files from Adobe Photoshop Touch in Photoshop CS5.
- Maximum image resolution: 1600 x 1600 pixels
The launch is believed to have been a mistake and is expected to officially launch on Monday for $9.99 in the U.S. It will be compatible with the iPad 2 only. We've included the full set of screenshots.

Adobe "prematurely" launched this app and priced it at $9.99

My guess is they made an error and will re-launch the app on Monday priced at $199.99 -- anyone want to take bets on this?

By the way, I have the desktop (Mac OS X) full-box version of Adobe Photoshop 5, and it was $599.99, so yes, I can say they don't exactly "give away" their software for cheap...especially Photoshop.

It's $9.99 on the Android Market. The price is no mistake.

Woo, I managed to get it in the UK store for £6.99! It's a really good app, I'm surprised they weren't asked to demo this at the iPad 3 event.

looks pretty nice, and for $10 I'd say it's a must for anyone who like to noodle with photos. If it does a tenth of the desktop version it'd be worth it for that price.

This looks like a fun app to use. Retouch some pics and email them to family and friends.

$9.99 for the touch version? Either its functionality is half of the computer version, or this is a steal!

I have done very few photo editing on the iPad. Can anyone with experience tell tell me if it felt awkward using the lasso tool(if this tool is even offered on the iPad) to cut out backgrounds?

When this is officially announced, someone should definitely investigate the app for any @2x Retina-quality assets.

If there was brush/pressure-sensitivity with the iPad this would be pretty impressive. Even as it stands now it's okay though. Imagine the possibilities if it could function like a Wacom tablet

Apple and Adobe aren't really best friends these days...

Hahaha how does this happen? How do you "accidentally" launch an app? I mean, you have to press "Send" or "Enter" or whatever, right?

That second to last screenshot has me just a little worried. While I don't expect this app to have all the features of its desktop counterparts, I hope it's at least more than some casual art package for social medialists.
