Being one of the most popular photo editors on OS X, Color Splash Studio caused quite a bit of excitement when it made the leap from Mac to iPhone. The service changed its name to ColorStrokes shortly after its iPhone release, and now, an iPad variant of the app, labeled ColorStrokes HD, is available on the iTunes App Store. You won’t find any major differences between the iPhone and iPad apps, but the latter utilizes the tablet’s larger screen real-estate to allow easier handling of brushes, and thus, more intricate editing. More details after the jump.

The app lets you import photos stored in your iPad’s photo library or your Facebook account. Alternatively, you may use your device’s camera to snap a picture and edit it right away. Each of the three central buttons in the bottom bar reveal extra options if you long-press them. By default, all imported images are greyscaled automatically. To start adding a color splash effect to the image, choose a color from the Paint option. Both predefined colors and a full palette are available in this section. To automatically change the background monotone of the entire image, long-press the middle button, to switch to one of the two additional options, namely, Bluetone and Sepia. The Color option allows you to temporarily hide or permanently remove the color mask that you painted over the image.

Whichever splash method you choose for editing has to be applied using the brush tool. Hold down on the brush tool to change brush density, diameter and opacity depending on the portion of the image you plan to paint over. For example, if you’re painting close to a particularly acute corner, you may want to increase the density and and reduce the diameter. You can also toggle Zoom Preview, which can help you see what you’re painting over as you do, helping you fill out even the smallest bits of the image with ease. Hitting the Adjust button allows users to change hue, saturation and brightness values of the entire image, the native color or adjust the intensity of the filter applied over the background.

Like its iPhone counterpart, ColorStrokes HD lets you choose between three slightly different Effects, or rather, blending options, which are essentially three levels of detail for the resulting image.

Image sharing options include Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Instagram. You can also get your handiwork posted to a loved one via the Sincerely Postcard service.

ColorStrokes HD will set you back $0.99, the same amount that its iPhone version demands – a just price tag considering the feature set and convenience that the app offers.
