Adobe Systems has announced that third-party application developers now have access to the Mobile for Android 1.1 editor, allowing them to easily make it a part of their applications. In addition, Mobile for Android 1.1 is available, providing users of the Google Mobile operating system with photo-editing and sharing capabilities.

“ Mobile is the ‘go-to,’ photo editing application for iPhone and Android devices,” said Doug Mack, vice president and general manager of Digital Imaging and Rich Media Solutions at Adobe. “Unlike iPhone, the Android platform allows us to make the editor broadly available to developers so they can provide it within any application they are working on. Photoshop functionality can then easily be accessed from an online auction, real estate or social media application so users can quickly fix photos and make them look their best, before being showcased.”

A new developer site now allows Android developers to leverage the Mobile for Android 1.1 editor in the creation of other application workflows. The Web site provides access to Adobe technology and promotes an ecosystem where developers have more creative freedom when developing their software. Consumers in turn are offered even better applications for their phones. Additional information on integrating the Mobile editor into Android applications can be found at Mobile for Android 1.1 advances mobile photo editing with eye-catching effects such as Vibrant, to boost photo colors, and Pop, which brings a ‘pop art’ style to images. The Soft Black and White, and Warm Vintage tools can be used to add a classic and aged effect to photos. With one touch, users can also apply dramatic changes to a photo’s look and feel with Vignette Blur, White Glow and Rainbow. All edits and changes can be undone so consumers can liberally apply effects and know that their original photo is safe.
