The planet’s most popular photo editing app has finally arrived on the world’s most popular tablet. Yes, you can now use your beloved iPad to Photoshop on the go. With Photoshop on iPad, Adobe promises that PSDs will look exactly the same “whether you’re working on your desktop or a mountain top.” Working on projects from different devices should be entirely seamless—provided you have an Internet connection—since everything is saved to Adobe Creative Cloud.
As Adobe points out, the iPad version of Photoshop isn’t as fully fledged as the desktop software. This initial release “focuses on compositing features and workflows,” but the company promises “much more to come.” That means the app offers basic adjustments, layers, “sophisticated” selections, masks, brushes, spot healing, clone stamp, and a handful of other tools and features. Various features are coming soon, including rotate canvas, select subject, refine edge, and more brushing options.
To run Photoshop on iPad, at a minimum you’ll need an iPad Pro, fifth-generation iPad, iPad Mini 4 or iPad Air 2—running iPadOS 13.1 or newer. The app is included alongside regular Photoshop, Lightroom and Lightroom Classic if you have a 20GB Photography plan or get it before January 31, 2020. It’s also available as an in-app purchase for $9.99 per month, or included with various subscriptions to the desktop software—the Photoshop Single App plan, 100GB Photography plan, and All Apps plan. You can try out Photoshop on iPad for 30 days for free.
