According to Apple patent news site Patently Apple, a recently published patent indicates that Apple is planning to develop both a desktop and mobile graphics application for the professional market. The patent is said to indicate that such an application would allow users to work with both bitmap and vector imagery, and would support both mouse and touch gestures. While it's a long road from a patent to a shipped product, Apple could probably do a pretty good job of re-inventing graphics applications, given its long track record in that area. It wouldn't be that hard to toss in page-layout and website creation tools and bingo — say hello to a creative suite Apple-style. And if those apps could read and write Adobe application file formats... let's just say things would get very interesting in the suite space.

I don't know about you but those increasingly seductive "sneak peeks" of Photoshop CS6, topped by the truly epic Content Aware Move, have made the last few months increasingly hard to get through. Sure, CS5.1 (or 12, using the pre-Suite numbering schema), was not without its charms but most of us chose to pass and wait for the CS6 Suite version.
