I love Photoshop, but I love my Mac more.
and Apple and Adobe's patchy relationship seems to be getting worse, not better.
Adobe have finally ditched Flash. I'd expected that to be the start of some form of reconciliation between the two since Steve Jobs has been dissing Flash for years, but instead, Adobe have brought out Photoshop Touch for the Android.
If you search the Adobe site hard you'll find a note saying that if you are looking for Photoshop Touch for the iPad, you can expect an announcement next year!!
My guess is the announcement will say "Go buy an Android"!

Anyway. My question is, as a Mac, iPhone and iPad user, is there an alternative to Adobe?

well first, adobe hasn't killed flash at all. Just the plugin model for phones.

second, there is photoshop express for iOS, and I'm sure others will develop for iOS, like pixelmator etc.

Furthermore, I'm sure that Adobe isn't THAT stupid. Photoshop is their retail sales bread and butter, and cutting off Mac users would be institutional suicide. Don't be so dramatic, it's not going anywhere.

indeed, in spite of the apple/adobe spat which, hopefully will die down in time, the iOS platform certainly the ipad most notably, would be a cash cow for adobe.

And it's not like Adobe is exactly the most easy outfit to get along with. In addition to their "at odds" with Apple, they went through the same thing with MS when the beta of Windows 7 included PDF conversion. Adobe balked at it and forced MS to make it a separate download.

But as Doug says, they're not stupid... just stubborn at times.
