Preview the “real” version of Photoshop coming to the iPad

At long, long, long, long, looooong last, Adobe is releasing a “real” version of Photoshop for the iPad.

The news was first announced earlier in the year, but now we have a teaser giving us a brief glimpse at what can be expected from the app when it’s released in 2019.

Adobe calls the new step “a major inflection for the future of creativity.”

“We are unlocking a new level of creative potential by releasing more powerful tools, extending creativity beyond the desktop, and empowering creatives to thrive in new mediums like voice and augmented reality,” Adobe says. “[It delivers] all the power, performance, and precision of Photoshop reimagined for a modern touch and gesture-based interface.”

PSD files saved on the iPad version will be automatically saved in the Adobe Cloud, meaning they can be worked on across multiple devices. “No exporting, importing, converting to different formats, or fixing whatever didn’t properly convert. It all just seamlessly works.”

There’s no exact release date for the app at the moment, but it will be released sometime next year. Users who already pay for the Adobe Creative Cloud will be able to download it as part of their subscription.
