Originally announced and available to iOS users on October 5, 2015, Adobe's Android version of Photoshop Fix has finally been released.
Here's a quick rundown of the app:
Image Retouching & Restoration
Adobe Photoshop Fix enables powerful, yet easy image retouching and restoration on your Android phone. Heal, smooth, liquify, lighten and make other edits and adjustments that give you the precise look you’re after. Access edited photos within other Adobe mobile and desktop apps by signing in to Adobe Creative Cloud to further refine them or use them in other creative projects – it’s all powered by Adobe CreativeSync.
Photoshop Fix Features
  • Retouch and restore photos using tools that give you the exact look, structure and feel you want:
    • Face-aware Liquify – Make dramatic edits to facial features. Create a bigger smile, slim down those cheeks or edit other facial points with remarkable ease.
    • Liquify — Push, pull, rotate, swell or reshape any area to create subtle or drastic effects.
    • Heal and patch — Fix imperfections using content from surrounding areas and then blend the result.
    • Smooth — Simply paint to smooth or sharpen skin, landscapes or other content.
    • Lighten and darken — Add or remove light from specific parts of a photo.
  • Edit and adjust photos using a variety of essential tools:
    • Color — Desaturate to remove all color or to create a mix of color and black-and-white.
    • Paint — Get precise effects with an eyedropper that lets you sample colors, an adjustable brush and an eraser.
    • Adjust — Add vignettes and control exposure, contrast and saturation
    • Defocus — Blur part of a photo to draw attention to your key subject.
  • Send your images directly to Photoshop CC on the desktop so you can refine them and take them further. Fix converts all your edits to layers and packages your image as a PSD file.
You can download Photoshop Fix for Android from the Google Play store. The iOS version can be downloaded from the iTunes App store.

There are few churches with a view comparable to that from The Chapel of the Transfiguration in Grand Teton National Park. I'm thinking that this view would be a strong distraction from the sermon.
The next time you visit Grand Teton National Park, make sure that The Chapel of the Transfiguration is on your to-photograph list. It is as attractive outside as it is inside. Morning is the best time of the day to photograph at this location as the tall mountains go dark when the sun sets behind them. A visit timed for the right week (late September) results in brilliantly colored aspen trees for the mid-ground layer of interest (though the aspens are only barely visible in this image).
Obviously, I went inside to capture this photo. My goal was to see the mountains through the window while capturing most of the interior of this little log-constructed church. My preference was to see the mountain peaks in the window and this meant a low shooting position at the back of the sanctuary was required. That position seemed to work well for the rest of the scene, so I went with it.
Though a steady stream of people were coming through the little church, there were enough breaks that patiently waiting was all that was needed to capture a wide range of exposures. Because the dynamic range was extreme, the wide range of exposures were required. I later used a manual HDR technique to composite several of those images into a balanced final result.
The Canon EOS 5Ds R and EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens were the perfect combination for this photo.
A larger version of this image is available on SmugMug, Flickr, Google+, Facebook and 500px. If reading from a news feed reader, click through to see the framed image.

Originally scheduled for widespread availability in mid-October, many DJI Mavic Pro preorder customers are still anxiously awaiting their foldable quadcopters. Unfortunately, production delays and higher-than-expected demand mean that preorder customers may not get their drones until right around Christmas time.
Here's DJI's official apology:
Dear DJI Customers:
We owe you an apology for our delays in delivering the new Mavic Pro. We want to thank you for your patience and also advise that we are looking into improving our order process and systems, based largely on your feedback.
When we announced Mavic Pro and began accepting pre-orders, we expected to deliver the first units in mid-October. However, ramping up production to full speed at top quality took longer than planned. Prior to our scheduled shipping target, we encountered an issue integrating a part into the Mavic Pro. We resolved that within a week. On top of that, the excitement for the Mavic Pro beat our expectations. As a result, we are working diligently to ramp up production to meet the higher-than-anticipated demand for the Mavic Pro.
We have been shipping for nearly two weeks, but even with round-the-clock production, we unfortunately cannot give specific delivery estimates for many orders moving through various global sales channels because of this demand. For Mavic Pro orders received before November 3, 2016, we will do our best to clear them all within the next seven to eight weeks.
Some of you waiting for your Mavic Pro also expressed concern about our immediate billing of pre-orders. We’ve heard you and are examining potential alternatives with our payment provider.
DJI exists to put amazing technology and innovation into your hands, and we’re sorry it’s taking so long with Mavic Pro. Our internal systems haven’t kept up with the enormous demand for our products, and your enthusiasm for our newest offering is spurring us to improve. We appreciate your understanding and are doing everything we can to get Mavic Pro to you as quickly as possible.
Sincerely, DJI
If you hope to get the DJI Mavic Pro before Christmas, preorder it now.
