Adobe today announced a new digital pen 'Adobe Ink' and digital ruler 'Adobe Slide' as well as a new suit of mobile apps. Adobe's Ink and Slide are accompanied by Adobe Sketch and Adobe Line, two new iPad apps. Adobe Sketch is a social sketching iPad app that brings inspiration, drawing, and 'your creative community together in one place.' Adobe Line on the other hand allows you to draw straight lines, geometric shapes, perspective views, and more in the world's first app for precision drawing/drafting.

Mobile Apps
● Adobe Sketch, a social sketching iPad app for free-form drawing. Sketch gives designers a connected creative process bringing inspiration, sketching and community together into one place. Create with essential drawing tools: a graphite pencil, an ink pen, two blending markers, (brush tip, chisel tip), and an eraser. Get live feedback from the creative community as you work.

● Adobe Line, the world’s first iPad app for precision drawing and drafting. Line recreates the art of drafting, combining organic drawing with beautiful straight lines, French curves and perfect shapes that can be drawn in plan and elevation views or in perspective. Line can be used in conjunction with Slide and reimagines traditional drawing tools like rulers, T-squares and shape templates for the mobile world, as well as giving creatives access to assets, Kuler color themes, and the ability to share work.

● Photoshop Mix, the most precise app for compositing and masking on iPad. Photoshop Mix also offers powerful cloud-based imaging technology on iPad for the first time, including Upright, Content Aware Fill, and Camera Shake Reduction. It offers non-destructive photo enhancements, selections, the ability to cut-out and mix images, and the ability to open and save PSD files enabling a continuous workflow with Photoshop CC on the desktop.

● Lightroom for iPhone extends recently shipped Lightroom mobile capabilities to the iPhone. It provides the most efficient way to manage and edit images across desktops, mobile devices and the Web. Additionally, the recently announced Adobe Voice, a free animated video app for iPad, has also been updated to work with your Lightroom catalogs.

Adobe Ink is a pressure-sensitive three-sided aluminum stylus that connects to Creative Cloud letting users access their photos, drawings, themes and more. Adobe Slide is the ruler that accompanies the stylus and enables precision sketching such as straight lines, perfect circles and more. Both tools are airmed to make sketching and drawing more 'natural and fluid.'

Creative Hardware
● Adobe Ink, a beautiful three-sided hydro-formed aluminum stylus for iPad running iOS7. It enables controlled, expressive drawing and connects to Creative Cloud, giving users access to their creative assets – favorite drawings, photos, Adobe Kuler color themes and more – all at the tip of the pen. Built using the Adonit Pixelpoint™ technology, the fine-tipped, pressure sensitive pen is lightweight and balanced for a comfortable grip.

● Adobe Slide, a category-defining digital ruler (and companion to Ink) for iPad running iOS7. Taking a modern twist on traditional tools used before computer graphics and desktop publishing, Slide enables precision sketching – straight lines, perfect circles, and balanced shapes – on iPad.

Adobe Ink and Slide require an iPad 4th generation, iPad Air, iPad Mini or iPad Mini with Retina display. You can read more about the product here.
