    There is no real version of photoshop on the iPad yet. Ere are working on it but I don't know the feature set yet. There is something today called photoshop express but it is only slight photo correction not drawing.

    There are some other good drawing programs available though but I'm not experienced with them. I know the lack of a precision stylus has been a negative for some.

    "Tool or Toy? The Apple iPad 2 for Photographers"

    Hi Cyana,

    I also enjoy digital photography. Here's an excellent article posted by DPreview that you might find interesting.

    After reading... You will have a better idea what the iPad 2 is capable, and not capable of as a tool for digital photographers.

    I hope this helps. Enjoy!

    I know art studio is the closest thing for me to PS. You have the ability of layers and to save/send psd's as well not sure about others.

    Theres an app called procreate. I got it awhile back for free (was only free for 24 hours), but haven't actually used it yet it's 4.99 atm.

    It apparently does all kinds of stuff, like layers, create custom brushes, smudge tool, etc.

    Check it out on itunes for a full list of what it does. It seems as close to photoshop as you'll get on the ipad.
    (it doesn't seem to have any filters, but theres tons of photo filter apps about for like 59p)

    The layer thing was great from a teaching standpoint. It can sometimes be hard to get the concept of how layers work across to students.

    Photoshop is a tricky one to call as it will greatly depend on adobe getting touch control right. When I use it on the Mac I find it's almost impossible to work with the trackpad and end up using a mouse.
    Over the years the core program has acquired hundreds of additions and they will have to focus on the basic feature set ensuring it's optimised for the iPad. Get it right and they could end up with a nice little earner, as the hardware is now capable.

    The other day a friend of mine picked up a stylus for the ipad 2 and i had a chance to play with it for a few minutes. I forget what the art program was that he had but I was able to adjust the brush size thickness and when drawing on the ipad it was very responsive and accurate. I then tried it just using my finger and the results were not as good nor accurate so I think a stylus would be a must for any of these art/photo editing programs.
