Proproductive on the tablet: Photoshop is coming to the iPad
Now there is Pro-models of the iPads already three years. The devices that are intended to replace your own laptop. But proper software like Photoshop never existed. Until now.
Many will now say that Photoshop is already in the App Store. That's true, at least in part. Because this is just Photoshop Express, a heavily trimmed version of the actual software. So she was for professional purposes quite useless, which is why a fully-fledged version of Photoshop for the iPad is now in the starting blocks.
Release may not be until next year
According to Scott Belsky, the chief Product Officer for the Creative Cloud at Adobe, Photoshop for the iPad is said to be part of the company's multi-platform strategy. However, it can still be a long time before the finished app ends up in the App Store on the iPad. This is because it takes time to adapt a full-fledged and rather complex software to the iPad. In addition, Adobe wants to make it possible to work synchronously on all devices, which is not something that just came out of the blue.
It is therefore assumed that Photoshop on the iPad will not be able to be used on the iPad until 2019 at the earliest. The presentation for this should take place in October this year at Adobe's annual MAX conference.
According to Belsky, the app should then be accessible to all customers as quickly as possible. It is not known whether the apparent time pressure is due to the growing competition from the Affinity Photo app. You also have to keep in mind that delays are always possible.
You can already use Photoshop on the iPad today
However, there is a workaround on how you can use the full version of Photoshop on your iPad today. For this you need a Mac or a MacBook and software that allows the screen content to be mirrored on an iPad. Duet Display and Astropad are particularly well-known here because they also support input with an Apple Pencil
Disadvantage of the whole thing: You always have to have your MacBook with you everywhere. There would be a full-fledged version of the photo editorprogram directly on the iPad much more practical.
