On the eve of the Adobe MAX 2019 conference, Adobe has quietly released its Photoshop app for iPad in the App Store. The software is expected to be announced at the conference, as per a report from Bloomberg last month.
Photoshop for iPad was first announced by Adobe just over a year ago, saying it would bring a full version of its photo editing software to Apple’s iPad, sometime in 2019.
The version of Photoshop for iPad is a free download and comes with a 30-day trial. After that, it will cost $13.49 CAD per month to use Photoshop on the iPad for Canadians. If you already have a qualifying Adobe Photoshop monthly membership, it’s free to use; you just need to log in.
Here’s the app’s iTunes description:
The world’s best imaging and graphic design software is at the core of just about every creative project from photo editing and compositing to digital painting, animation, and graphic design. And now you can harness the power of Photoshop on your iPad to create anything you can imagine, wherever you’re inspired.
This first version focuses on core compositing and retouching tools designed to work best on the iPad with Apple Pencil and touch. And we’re just getting started. For future versions, we’re looking at enhancing our tools used for brushes, masks, refining edges, and selecting smart subjects. Plus, we want to make it easier to access your brushes and fonts in Creative Cloud.
