A lot of photography lovers were elated when it was announced that Adobe was finally releasing a Photoshop app for iPad. For a long time, they were stuck with the PC version, which limited them. Now, with an iPad app, they can even work on their photos on the go.
We will admit, there are a lot of photo editing apps that are available on the Apple App Store but it should be noted that most photo editors just love Photoshop. In fact, there is no denying that Photoshop will make your photos stand out. It is a well-known factor in the photography industry that Adobe Photoshop is a really excellent photo editing software.
We have tested this software and discovered that the iPad version is so easy to use, so much that even beginners can use it with no problems. In fact, it’s so easy to navigate and users will be able to find a very good set of tools that are required for photo editing. In addition, users will be able to use creative Cloud integration. That’s not all, though. After you have finished editing your photos, you will be able to share them on most social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, twitter, and many others. Another great feature is that the app can actually support TIFF and RAW file types.
The Big Announcement
Pam Clarke, who is the senior director of product management at Adobe said that beside the fact that people will be able to edit photos on the go, the iPad app actually version “is reimagined with a new user experience completely redesigned for the iPad with touch and mobility top of mind.” This was in a blog post that was posted on the Photoshop blog.
We will admit it was a long time coming. Many photo editors who use iPad had been waiting for it for such a long time. And, back in 2018, there were rumours that an official release of the app was going to be announced soon. However, that never happened and it left a lot of photo editors disappointed.
In the announcement that was posted on the website, Pam Clarke also said that a new version of Photoshop for PC was coming. She said that the new Pc version was coming with a new Sensei AI, as well as what she called a major expansion of Adobe’s cloud documents system. In addition, she mentioned that the new version would also come with support for PSD files, as well as Adobe Aero.
It seems like the same base code is used for both the PC version and the iPad version. What this means is that, user swill be able to open, as well as edit the same PSD in Photoshop both on iPad and on PC. This, said Adobe, can be done without even worrying about compressions, conversions, exports, or imports. Furthermore, the new system allows your work to be automatically saved to the cloud.
Adobe went on to say that, this was only just the beginning on this innovation. As of now, the iPad app doesn’t really support most of the features that you will find on the PC version. In fact, this current iPad version, which is Version 1.0, will mainly focus on basic retouching, compositing, and other common tasks.
