The promise of fully-powered portable editing software from Adobe is coming true. A full version of Photoshop will soon be available for the iPad, according to a report from Bloomberg.
The addition of a dedicated iPad Photoshop program is part of Adobe’s strategy to expand its software across all platforms and devices. The report says that the iPad version of Photoshop won’t be available until sometime in 2019, however the company is expected to make the announcement at the annual Adobe MAX conference in October.
While there are currently Adobe photo editing products available for tablets such as the iPad (Photoshop Express and Lightroom Mobile), they often lack the full functionality of Photoshop that prized by pro shooters.
“My aspiration is to get these on the market as soon as possible,” Adobe Creative Cloud CPO Scott Belsky told Bloomberg. “There’s a lot required to take a product as sophisticated and powerful as Photoshop and make that work on a modern device like the iPad.”
Many working photographers remain tied to their Macbook laptops; but perhaps this new version of Photoshop will mark a shift to the lighter, more portable iPad when in remote locations.
