Photoshop comes to the iPhone (!?)

Hmm, let’s see: start with one high-res newfangled multi-touch display; add a powerful graphics processor; and throw in built-in telephony.  The result: handheld iPhonetoshop?

Er, maybe not yet, but Scott Kelby & co. had fun making a 2-minute spoof that played during the keynote address at Photoshop World.  You can see the very funny results in Terry White’s latest Creative Suite Podcast (direct link to video; “Photoshop CS3 for iPhone” starts at 3:10).  [Update: Here’s just the spoof itself–easier to see and hear, though you can’t hear the crowd reaction.]  And hey, maybe OnStar-style Photoshop support (“Would you like me to unlock that background layer for you?”) could have some legs. 🙂

Other demos captured in the podcast include the Flash/Flex-powered Photoshop Express (starting around 16:10), 3D hook-ups from Daz3D (23:45) and Strata (29:10), as well as an example of Photoshop Extended turning flat medical imaging data into a translucent floating 3D skull (37:40).

PS–If the Flash Player ran on the iPhone, might we see Photoshop Express running there as well?  Hmm–it’s an interesting prospect, anyway.

  1. You laugh, but there would be real value to it:
    A cell phone photo fixer type of app, hosted for maximum horse power, coupled with a storing service or working in conjunction with the Picasa’s Flickr’s of the world. Yes, I can see that! Photoshop OnTheGo…

  2. It’s funny because it’s true

    Very funny indeed. too bad the audio is not that great. By the way, does anyone know what’s that theme in Firefox ? It looks great.

  3. In the video there’s mention of a new Photoshop logo and tagline. But not hearing much about this anywhere else yet. Wondering if we could learn more about how this came to be, the story behind it?
    [Thanks for the reminder, Jennifer. I’ve been lagging on this one and need to get it in gear. I’ll try to post something later today. –J.]
