Create on the go: Photoshop coming to iPad

14 July 2018

According to Bloomberg, that will finally change in 2019, as Adobe is expected to launch the full version of Photoshop on the iPad as it expands beyond the boundaries of personal computers. Bloomberg received some confirmation from Adobe's Scott Belsky, who said that the company was working on a "new cross-platform iteration of Photoshop". He's aiming to get Photoshop, along with other Adobe products "on the market as soon as possible". Adobe is now developing a full version of Photoshop on the iPad, and the company plans to introduce it at its MAX conference in October. Theres a lot required to take a product as sophisticated and powerful as Photoshop and make that work on a modern device like the iPad.

Adobe now has several mobile "Photoshop" apps on the App Store, but they constitute small slices of the full desktop app feature-set. "We need to bring our products into this cloud-first collaborative era", said Adobe's chief product officer of Creative Cloud. Gurman reports that Adobe is working to both "satisfy the professionals who rely on its software for photo editing and illustration, and to capture casual users".

Adobe already makes photo-editing software for the iPad, but Photoshop Express, Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Mix, and Lightroom Mobile are stripped-down apps that are designed specifically for mobile devices. Right now, Photoshop proper is only available on Windows tablets like Microsoft Surface, which can run the Windows app in a "tablet-optimized" mode. It's also probable that, unlike the most existing Photoshop-branded apps, the full Photoshop on iPad will be tied to a Creative Cloud subscription (Photoshop CC on its own costs $9.99 per month).
