Join artists around the world who are creating beautiful artwork with Adobe Eazel.
As long as you have a network connection between your iPad and your computer, you can send your Adobe Eazel artwork directly to Photoshop CS5 from anywhere. Start with the mobility and freedom of the tablet and finish your work using the power and precision of Photoshop. Or do all your painting in Adobe Eazel. You can always share your work via email or save it to the built-in Photos app on your iPad.
• Paint beautiful works of art using just your fingertips.
• Mix “wet” and “dry” paint to create rich, realistic color blends. Breakthrough technology allows digital paint to “dry” over time.
• Paint more freely using the entire iPad screen. Controls for changing color, opacity, brush size, and other settings appear only when you place all five fingers on the screen.
• Send your paintings directly to Photoshop CS5, where they’ll be re-rendered at a higher resolution and can be saved in any file format you choose. (Photoshop CS5 must be open, and a network connection between your iPad and your computer is required.)
• Save paintings to your iPad Photos app, and then email them as JPEG files or store them in the Eazel in-app gallery.

Expensive and buggy
Wow, I expected so much more from Adobe, having used their products since the late eighties!
This product boasts a revolutionary UI and interaction model, which on paper (and in their demo video) seems pretty fast an neat. In practice, it is utter rubbish - so quirky and unstable as to be virtually unusable. Sometimes you get the 5 menus at yourfingtips as in the video, sometimes they're just in a line, but most of the time the 5finger touch just invokes the iPad multitasking menu instead. Maybe this is an example of a great UI idea that became obsolete with an OS update, but that's no excuse for a $10 application.
The Photoshop connectivity is bogus as well. Very poor workflow indeed. You can sketch an idea, and push it through to Photoshop through a very cool feature of Photoshop itself. But that's where it ends. The image from then on remains in Photoshop, never to return. Further edits done on the iPad have to be synced to a new image in PS.
This app feels like a neat Adobe Labs experiment that ought to be free or a buck for now. It's not in the least a "serious" tool and doesn't warrant the $10 price tag. Contrast this app to the polish of Ideas and you'll see what I mean. Better yet, DONT. At ten dollars, you can't afford to audit a piece of software. I'm going to see about a refund, myself.
Eazel is spare, elegant, gorgeous
It took a little practice before the interface bcame second nature, but now I love it ... like I love each of my little art apps for their own unique properties. The way the colours bloom and flow is almost hypnotic ... Beautiful transparency effects. A bonus: children love it.
Is this an adobe app?
What a disappointment, the 5 finger controls do not work, the app is unstable, the results very poor.
When you can get the controls, they take too long to activate.
As someone who has used photoshop and other Adobe products for over 10 years I would suggest that this app is a flop.
