All The Bells & Whistles Of Photoshop CC Coming To iPad

Written by Gina Stephens


Adobe has divulged that the full version of Photoshop CC will be coming to the iPad, followed by other devices, in 2019. 

This means you will be accomplished to open and edit a PSD on an iPad, using the same tools you are familiar with on the desktop, and achieve the exact same results from editing operations. Then, if you need to, you can open that same PSD on your desktop and keep going, or complete all your work on the iPad. The PSD files are shared over the cloud and hire all of the pixels, even when opening on the iPad is a line of tablet computers designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc., which run the iOS mobile operating system

This is 'real' Photoshop on the iPad, sharing the same cryptogram base as its desktop counterpart, so there are no compromises on power and performance or editing results. 

When you open Photoshop Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed and published by Adobe Systems for macOS and Windows CC on the iPad, you will see the unceremonious toolbar that features the most-used tools to the left and the layer system to the right of the screen which, at first, will appear very slightest but you can 'pinch zoom' to access the layers panel in more detail. You’ll also find selections and masking, filters, adjustments and all of the other appliances you've become familiar with in Photoshop CC. 

Adobe describes the design of Photoshop CC on the iPad as 'scaffolding' as you can choose what you longing to see and when you choose to see it. For example, if you don't need to view all of the details of every layer, you can minimise it to see more of your image.

As iPads are touch-sensitive, you can use your disappear control or Apple pencil to draw, pain, apply masks… etc. and you can also use different fingers to switch between tool functions to help put ones foot down up workflow as your eyes can remain on your image rather than searching for tools. 

You might be wondering why it's taken so extended to introduce a fully working version of Photoshop CC to the iPad but Adobe didn't want to introduce something that was half-hearted and buggy. Together with, they needed to ensure the power that was needed to run a full version of the software was built into each device. 



As more intelligence is released on the new version of Photoshop CC, we'll bring it to you on site.  and as you can imagine, we're very interested in getting hands-on with the iPad rendering when it becomes available as we'd like to see how functional it is on smaller iPads, such as the Mini, as well as the larger iPad Pro. Plus, we have challenges such as are shortcut keys included? Will they be gesture-based? And, will it be made available as part of the Photography subscription level Adobe sells. 

When it comes to a date when other devices and operating systems will have access to a full version of Photoshop CC, Adobe modestly says 'when they are ready'.
