Adobe says editing app Photoshop CC and drawing app Project Gemini are bound for the iPad next year


During today's Adobe MAX conference in Los Angeles, Adobe demonstrated versions of editing app Photoshop CC and drawing app Project Gemini for the Apple iPad. Both will be coming to the iOS powered tablet in 2019. Adobe says that Photoshop CC for the iPad is redesigned to work on a touchscreen while delivering the "power and precision" of the desktop version. Using Creative Cloud, iPad users will be able to start editing work on the tablet and finish it on the desktop.

According to Adobe, Photoshop CC on the iPad will allow users to open and edit native Photoshop Document files (PSD) and includes the Photoshop layers panel. The Project Gemini app "combines raster, vector and new dynamic brushes into a single app experience built for drawing. Project Gemini enables artists to use and sync their favorite Photoshop brushes and works seamlessly with Photoshop CC."


Adobe just disseminated a new video today, showing Photoshop at work on the iPad. You can check out the brief clip, which can be found at the top of this article.

Still sounds like it'll be a stripped down version of the real deal and mostly just adapted to make better use of the touchscreen.

"Adobe's upcoming version of Photoshop is "not watered down" and is version of Photoshop with all of the assets and tools needed to create the same projects you can make on the desktop on the iPad. According to Adobe, Photoshop for iPad would not have been possible without the company's close work by Apple and the power of the iPad Pro." Sounds like it's full version.

From promotional video above, it's a stripped down version.

Video shows a new touch interface designed with a smaller screen in mind, I see nothing indicating it's a stripped down version. Other news sources on this explain that better than phonearena.com did.

i feel like a mouse is very important need to properly utilize Photoshop, it would be like using AutoCad 2019 on the ipad.

That's why they redesigned the whole software to suit for touch use.

Stylus is better than mouse, wacom is popular among professional Photoshop users.

I find a mouse terrible for photoshop, I bought a Wacom tablet a good decade ago for a reason, and that was Photoshop.

If this does bring a much better touch interface than they've had in the past I hope it becomes an option on windows devices.
