Use Adobe Photoshop Mix to combine the power of Adobe Photoshop software with the convenience of mobile for a creative, easy-to-use photo editing experience on your iPad, iPad Pro, iPhone, Android device, or Chromebook. The ability to cut out images, mix them, and edit images non-destructively means your original photo stays untouched. Additionally, the Creative Cloud-connected workflows in Mix open up limitless creative possibilities.

General information

Adobe Photoshop Touch was originally created to provide a subset of Photoshop tools within a self-contained but limited application. Photoshop Mix is solely focused on remixing images. It extends its capabilities through the Adobe Creative SDK cloud services and integration with applications like Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC to take your creativity further.

Built using the Creative SDK, Mix delivers features and functionality to mobile devices, previously only available in our professional desktop products, in an easy-to-use app that's as much about connectivity as it is about editing.

Photoshop Mix is no longer available for download on iOS. We recommend you to check out Photoshop Express which is available as a free download through the iTunes App Store.

Android users can download the free app through the Google Play Store.

With CreativeSync, you can seamlessly move between multiple apps on your mobile device in one workflow.

In Photoshop Mix, you can seamlessly move work to and from the new Photoshop Fix app, Lightroom for mobile, Comp, and Sketch. Mix is also compatible with Adobe Spark Video and Adobe Spark Page.
