Adobe today updated its Photoshop app for iPad, introducing two previously unavailable tools to further align the iPad version of the app with Photoshop for the desktop.
With the new Smudge Tool, Photoshop iPad users can blend colors in their images, and with the Sponge Tool, different areas of an image can be saturated or desaturated.
According to Adobe, the Smudge tool is able to simulate the effect of wet paint crossing a finger, and can also be used to smudge lines and blend two or more colors together. The Smudge tool can be accessed from the Adjustment tool options.
The Sponge Tool can be used to enhance the brightness of colors in specific areas of an image or to mask the colors. As with the smudge tool, the sponge tool is available by clicking on the adjustment tools icon.
Today’s update also introduces options to adjust the white balance of Camera Raw images and there are now labels for tool icons that can be seen when you hover over them.
Both tools work well with a finger or Apple pencil, and Adobe recommends using the “Apple Pencil” for best results.

The photography package includes Lightroom for desktop and mobile, Lightroom Classic, Photoshop for desktop and iPad, and 20 GB of cloud storage.
