Adobe is surprisingly porting the full version of Photoshop CC to the iPad. The Photoshop CC for the iPad is expected to officially launch in 2019, but before that, Adobe and Apple just gave a demo of what it is capable of during the Adobe Max keynote in Los Angeles.
Adobe’s previous announcements at its MAX conference made a hint that Photoshop CC is coming for iPad. And yes, it turned out to be true, as Scott Belsky, the chief product officer of Adobe’s Creative Cloud even told Bloomberg that he was hoping to have the product out as soon as possible.
As mentioned above, Adobe’s new Photoshop on iPad won’t be a degraded version of the desktop application, but instead, it will contain all of the desktop features. It appears to be true as Scott Belsky said during the keynote, “This is the real Photoshop on the iPad. The Photoshop code base is being used on iPad. All PSD files open on the iPad version”.
The compatibility of the desktop elements is not a problem, as its interface is optimized for finger and pen input, instead of a mouse commonly used for desktop computers. According to Adobe, this touch feature includes natural touch gestures, so you can easily accomplish the same work on Apple’s tablet just like the way you produce your artwork on your computer.
Pam Clark, Adobe’s product manager for Photoshop even made an assurance of flexible work on this version. “Anything you do on the iPad is seamlessly synced to the desktop, so you can now use the best device for the task you want to accomplish with no compromises. No exporting, importing, converting to different formats, or fixing whatever didn’t properly convert. It all just seamlessly works”, he said. It only means that the iPad version will also be a part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud where you can sync your progress using the same files.
This announcement shows that Adobe have seen the great potential of the new iPads into the market, and it could bring a great advancement into their software products. The exact release date of the Photoshop version for iPads has not been confirmed, but we can expect it earlier next year, so stay tuned with TechnoCodex and we will bring you its latest contents.
