Can You Get Photoshop on the iPad

Is it coming? Full Photoshop on the iPad?

Photoshop on the iPad

Photoshop on the iPad. It is expected that Adobe will make a full and formal announcement in October before its 2019 release. This will be a real bonus for professional photographers on the go. Especially those that use the larger iPads such as the iPad Pro.

The iPad became more PC-like in 2017 with the release of iOS 11 but without, alas, the full Photoshop app. However, Adobe do already have photo and imaging apps for the iPad:

  • Adobe Photoshop Express
  • Photoshop Mix
  • ​...and Photoshop Fix

However, if like me, a lot of photographers probably find it a pain not having some (a lot) of the features that the full Adobe Photoshop has.

The upcoming release is a welcome one but let's hope it's not too late. After all, the excellent Affinity Photo is already available at a reasonable cost for the iPad (single payment, no subscription). It might even entice me to invest in the iPad Pro myself!
