The impressive iOS curves tool MaxCurve [iTunes link] offers an incredible approach to color manipulation and does things that even Photoshop can't do — but now there's a way to connect the two apps together, seamlessly sending your Photoshop image to your iOS device for manipulation, then back again!

MaxCurve and Photoshop integration

In this video you'll see not only how to set up the integration and see the basics of how MaxCurves works (if you want to learn more about the app itself, let me know in the comments and I'll do another video), you'll also see what happens when you have a colorspace mismatch (as I unexpectedly did!) and how to resolve it.

Here's a before and after of the image I sent to MaxCurve in the video. This isn't an amazing treatment; it's just one quick example of what can be done.

I have loved using the Max Curve app for a long while now, but my favorite use has been the ability to remote connect straight with Photoshop.  About a month ago, everything stopped working the same, and although the app acts like it is importing from Photoshop, the image never appears in my phone.  I’ve re-set the remote connections info several times and deleted and re-uploaded the app…with nothing solving the issue.  I have been googling for any help and came across your site. Would you happen to have a suggestion? I’ve truly loved being a Max Curve user, any ideas?


I don't, sorry… in all honesty I didn't use it much after making this video. Have you tried reaching out to the Max Curve folks? That'd  be your best bet.
