Adobe is developing a full-fledged Photoshop for the iPad. It will be presented in October this year at MAX, which is annually conducted by Adobe, according to Bloomberg.
Despite the fact that Photoshop for iPad will present this fall to download it will be only in 2019. Exact date is unknown because it can be postponed due to problems with development.
Director Adobe Creative Cloud Scott Belsky confirmed that the company is working on cross-platform Photoshop.
“It is necessary that the product was as refined and powerful as Photoshop for computers. Clients Adobe, especially in media and entertainment, and increasingly work with tablets, not desktop computers. They asked us to provide the ability to edit on the fly your creative projects,” said Belsky.
With the new Photoshop, the company sets two objectives — to satisfy professionals and attract new users. The app will get optimized interface for mobile devices, and not just a full copy of Photoshop, told Bloomberg people familiar with the project.
Probably Photoshop will support Apple Pencil. The way the full Photoshop for iPad could be a threat to Affinity Photo and Pixelmator, which managed to occupy a niche professional photo editor on a tablet.
