      Hi Glenn, Glad you are doing better on HubPages. I a still on both sites and then some.

      Glad to have helped here. Adobe does have some nice apps and software. And $9.95 for apps is a good deal.

      Sandy, I remember you from Squidoo. I have since then moved all my articles over to HP as I'm doing better here.

      I found your hub on Adobe Touch apps very useful since I've been using a few free apps to design some images to use in my hubs. But I never was very satisfied with any of them.

      It's worth it to pay $9.95 for Adobe Photoshop Touch on a tablet. That's nothing compared to how much it costs for it on a desktop. I have the third-generation iPad and I see that they have a version for this too. I just checked in the App Store. So I plan to give it a try.

      You gave a lot of helpful information here which makes it easy to make a buying decision. Great work. Voted up.
