Photoshop Touch Gets Retina Support With New iPad App Update | PadGadget | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Having Photoshop on the iPad is pretty fantastic, especially if you are using Photo Stream to have access to all of your images. The one problem for those using it on a third-generation iPad is the leck of Retina support. It may not seem like a big deal, but when you are staring at a slightly grainy image on a pristine screen, you start to get irritated. Well, throw your annoyances out the window because Adobe has just updated Photoshop Touch to support Retina display."

Just a typical day here at Eanes and many districts across the country. As the amount of 1:1 schools and districts continue to grow with many different devices, but specifically the Apple iPad, I thought it might be good to reflect and share the laundry list of items we’ve prepared in getting ready for our roll-outs. (all high school students, 8th graders, and 2 grade levels at the elementary schools are 1:1 this year) I’ve already written about 10 things NOT to do in a 1:1 here (the list is growing in year 2) but what about things we SHOULD do?"
