Adobe Photoshop Touch: Adobe Color Lava Review

Color Lava lets you use the iPad’s screen as a palette to mix colors with.This is what it does

  • You can save your sample colors as swatches and save a set of 5 swatches as a ‘color theme’
  • You can load a photo from your photo roll and use that as the palette to mix colors
  • You can sample a color so it becomes the color in your color picker in Photoshop.

Here’s what’s not so great.

For all the Photoshop connectivity you expect, it only transmits one piece of information to Photoshop (to pick the foreground color swatch)

  • You can’t sample a color in photoshop to bring it into Color Lava
  • You can’t load your photoshop document into Color lava to use for color mixing
  • You can’t pick colors from the side using any color numbers
  • You can’t save multiple palettes.
  • you can’t save your color themes out as swatches
  • you can’t upload your color themes to Kuler.

To be truly useful, the app and photoshop really needs to be able to talk back and forth, and that’s not happening here.
