PhotoForge For iPad

Originally back in May, PhotoForge 2 provided a completely redesigned interface and more options making it a powerful image editing software for the iPod and iPhone. This past weekend PhotoForge 2 has been updated to now run on the iPad and is available now for only $1.99 in the App Store.

Native iPad support is here! PhotoForge2 is now a universal application and fully supports the iPad. All the functionality in the iPhone version is now available in the full resolution of the iPad.
  • Mask painting has been dramatically improved. Painting is now incredibly fast even on super large images.
  • New composition mode while mask painting allows you to see the layers below, making masking the easiest way to selectively apply filters and effects to your photos.
  • Cropping handles have been redesigned and implemented making cropping much easier to control than before.
  • The rotation gesture in the cropping tool has been removed and replaced with 1 degree rotation buttons.
  • Added ability to save photos back to the documents directory. Making it very easy to get your images back onto your computer.
  • Can now save images in JPEG, PNG and TIFF. PNG and TIFF will maintain any transparency in your images.
After the heralded success of PhotoForge for the iPhone, it is likely to be the "go-to" photo editor on the iPad as well. Or could they be too late?
