​Photoshop Touch is not available for iOS anymore. I downloaded PS Express to my iPhone but it looks completely different than PS Touch you use in this great tutorial. I played a bit with it to see if I could create the silhouette project but failed. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Nice video!

Great idea if the kids in your classroom have iPhones. :)
