For new iPad owners that just happen to enjoy adding effects to photos too, we’ve got some good news for you. Five months after Apple’s third generation tablet arrived, the Adobe Photoshop Touch app has been updated and now includes full Retina display support. First released in February, the $9.99 app allows users to apply professional effects to photos. It includes popular Photoshop features designed for the iPad such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters. In May, Adobe changed the app’s maximum resolution to 2048 x 2048 pixels. However, it wasn’t until its most recent update that the app supported the new iPad’s Retina display. Version 1.3 includes:
