[parsehtml]<p><img src="http://www.techspot.com/images2/news/bigimage/2015/08/2015-08-27-image.jpg" /></p> <p>Earlier this year Adobe announced the end of its mobile app, Photoshop Touch, and hinted at a future replacement. News of a project named &ldquo;Project Rigel&rdquo; surfaced a little while later with an iffy availability date of late 2015.</p> <p>Recently, <a href="http://www.cnet.com/news/with-project-rigel-adobe-hopes-to-bring-photoshop-to-the-mobile-masses/">CNet reported</a> that we&rsquo;ll most likely see Adobe&rsquo;s new mobile option this October. The app will be high end, when it comes to photo retouching by phone, and come in the form of a free iOS editing app. Reportedly it will look a lot like the desktop software people are already familiar with, but with a UI designed to be touchscreen friendly.</p> <p>Details are still sparse -- Will the app actually be named Rigel? Will actor Rob Riggle be the face of the app? -- but CNet says the app will make its debut at Adobe&rsquo;s Max conference in October. For anyone who has used the desktop version, imagining all of the tools redesigned to be controlled with a fingertip rather than a mouse is headache inducing. Thankfully, Adobe has that job.</p> <p>Project Rigel is the latest of a few attempts by Adobe to build a base of smartphone and tablet Photoshop users. The discontinued <a href="http://www.techspot.com/news/43737-adobe-releases-three-photoshop-apps-for-the-ipad.html">Photoshop Touch</a> and the still available Photoshop Express (pictured above) are two others. Lightroom for mobile is also available, but the iOS and Android app is hardly a standalone option for photographers on the go. Hilarious name included, Project Rigel might be Adobe&rsquo;s best mobile offering yet, but we&rsquo;ll have to wait at least until October to find out.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/61909-take-photo-editing-go-adobe-latest-photoshop-mobile.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/61909-take-photo-editing-go-adobe-latest-photoshop-mobile.html'>http://www.techspot.com/news/61909-take-photo-editing-go-adobe-latest-photoshop-mobile.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]
