Is it coming? Full 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!
