For the first time, Adobe today released proper Photoshop for the iPad. This isn't Photoshop Mix or any of the other past, smaller, less useful apps that broke out limited features of Photoshop in years past. This is the real deal, complete with PSD support and the ability to handle hundreds of layers (yes, hundreds).
What was announced nearly a year ago is finally here. Say, hello, to Photoshop on iPad.
To help support the true mobilization of Photoshop, Adobe has facilitated the transcendence of the PSD into the cloud. As of today, PSD files will now sync across devices through Creative Cloud as otherwise identical PSDC files. All that's left to do is open them up on your iPad and begin editing. That's not to say, however, that an internet connection is at all necessary to work on any files already locally stored on the iPad.
While also adding support for Apple Pencil, Adobe reworked the entire Photoshop not only into simply a touch interface, but even into a more limiting single-panel tablet interface. Considering the challenge of providing all the capability of a screen, mouse, external tablet, and keyboard shortcuts within just the screen, they've done a pretty good job. Certain aspects of the interface are so clean, it makes you want an iPad-like workspace on the desktop when you're in the mood for a more minimal, immersive workspace.
Yes, some features will still have to come over time. But for now, check it out and see what you think. Photoshop on iPad is available for anyone with a Creative Cloud subscription that already includes Photoshop, which was also updated with additional improvements today.
