in Photo and Video (E)

[] Seattle, Washington - RogueSheep today announced that an important update for its TouchUp App for iPad is now available from the App Store. Since its original release in October of last year, TouchUp has brought creative photo editing to iPad, enabling anyone to create captivating art from their photos or make common adjustments with ease.

"We're happy to have provided substantial enhancements to reusing layer masks as well as providing new effect filters in this latest release," said RogueSheep President and co-founder Daniel Guenther. "Also, the addition of full Flickr support and printing using AirPrint are powerful new ways to both import your photos and share your creativity with others."

The TouchUp App leverages iPad's graphics processor and OpenGL graphics to provide high-performance image editing in a refined user experience. Users can apply a variety of effects to their photo which can then be "brushed" on or off any portion of the image. Users can stack any number of effects and adjustments on their photos to make even more impressive results. The update allows users to create new layers using the same touched regions, or to swap out which effect is being used on any given layer.

Prior to today's update, only access to Flickr's recent photo stream was available. Today's update allows users to log in securely to their own Flickr account and browse their photos as a whole, by their own predefined sets or tags or those marked as favorites. The update also adds 5 completely new effects at no extra charge: Sharpen, Pixelate, Vignette, Cross Process, and Redscale.

When a photo is ready to share with others, the TouchUp App provides many choices with just a few taps including saving to the iPad photo library, sending email, or posting to Facebook or Twitter. Today's update adds the ability to save to Flickr and to print wirelessly using AirPrint technology.

Updated features include:
* 3 new pixel-image effects: Sharpen, Pixelate, Vignette
* 2 new "Lo-fi" filters Cross Process and Redscale
* Flickr import with full Set, Tag, and Favorites integration
* New layer reusing current layer mask
* Change layer effect while preserving layer mask
* Flickr export
* AirPrint printing

Device Requirements:
* Compatible with iPad.
* Requires iOS 3.2 or later
* 25.0 MB

Pricing and Availability:
TouchUp for iPad 1.2 is $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category.
