    I have been playing around with my iPad and Photoshop Touch. Naturally
    I have looked for somebody with more knowledge of the program than I
    have to give me a lesson or two beyond the built in tutorials.

    What I have found, and thought I would share with others with iPads who
    might want to dabble, is Russell Brown's Pod Casts on the subject.

    Looks neat! Better than I expected. Little disappointed by the size
    limitations, though.

    Yah, and another thing he conveniently forgot to mention is that layered
    ..psd files will automatically get flattened if you try to import from
    Photoshop to Photoshop Touch. Tha layered movement of .psd files is one
    way only.

    However if you use Adobe's "Creative Cloud" layered files processed in
    PST are available on a desktop with layers intact.

    The thing to remember is PST is a compromise for use on a tablet,
    having layers available on a tablet is quite a development. PST is not
    a replacement for CS/5/6 so don't expect it to have that capability for
    $10.
    It is what it is.

    take any quality images with an i phone.[/QUOTE]

    That depends on your needs, and I suggest that you take another look at
    some of those videos.

    I agree that if compared with a desktop running LR4/CS5/CS6 you would
    find PST lacking, but that is not the point of this program. I need a
    decent RAW processor, PST does not provide one, and I don't expect one
    for $10. It does provide many features such as layers and some complex
    adjustment tools.

    Then you need to ask the question in the context of the compact camera,
    or phone camera user, without access to a desktop/laptop and the $$$
    cost of CS6 or LR4.
    Today that individual might well have a tablet, iPad, or Android. PST
    gives that type of photographer some pretty sophisticated adjustment
    tools to produce more than acceptable images. Not all shooters use or
    can afford state of the art equipment and processing software.
    Photoshop Touch is an acceptable tool for the tablet user who has no
    demands beyond say 2000x2000 output, and who might use a camera phone
    or compact for source images

    Regarding quality images from an iPhone, or any phone for that matter,
    all depends on the circumstances of the shot, and the ability of the
    shooter and his/her understanding of the camera used. All of that said
    I would guess that the great majority of images processed using PST
    would be from compact cameras. My DSLR shots are still processed on my
    desktop using LR4 and CS5, and I have no desire to work on them on my
    iPad. However I can see refining some of my iPhone snapshots or some of
    my G11 shots using PST on my iPad.
