Why it just got a lit­tle eas­ier to re­touch your life in pho­tos.

The Washington Post Sunday - - BUSINESS - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

We’re liv­ing in a re­touched world, and it just got a lit­tle eas­ier to bring your own snaps up to par. Adobe’s Pho­to­shop has long been the photo al­ter­ation tool of choice — but at quite a cost. It didn’t seem worth buy­ing Pho­to­shop just to make a goofy pic­ture of your cat on top of the Eif­fel Tower.

But with Pho­to­shop Mix, you can use its most com­mon edit­ing tools on your smart­phone free. Mix comes with more than just the ba­sics of crop­ping, in­stant color cor­rec­tion and fil­ters. It lets you cre­ate lay­ered images, blend pho­tos to­gether, crop and remix to your heart’s con­tent.

Most peo­ple aren’t go­ing to be able to make mas­ter­pieces on their phones with Mix. But if you want to re­touch some snaps — you can pull pic­tures from your cam­era or a num­ber of cloud ser­vices — it’s hard to ar­gue with the sim­plic­ity and ver­sa­til­ity of this app. Users will need to sign up for an Adobe ac­count.

Free, for iOS and An­droid de­vices.
