The iPad is finally on its way to receiving the world’s most popular photo editing software as a new report indicates that Adobe Photoshop is on the way.
According to a report from Bloomberg, Adobe will make an announcement at its annual MAX creative conference in October that it is finally ready to launch Photoshop on the iPad. This has floated around for years as a rumor, but many were skeptical if this was truly a possibility. The main concern has always been the number of resources it takes to run the program, but thanks to cloud computing, things are always changing.
Scott Belsky, Adobe’s chief of Creative Cloud software, said that the company is indeed working on a new cross-platform version of Photoshop, but would not give any information as to when it will be released. Photoshop is not the only app being worked on at this time, but Belsky would not reveal which other ones are on the way.
“My aspiration is to get these on the market as soon as possible,” said Belsky. “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. We need to bring our products into this cloud-first collaborative era.”
While Adobe already offers slimmed down versions of its software, apparently the new version would even allow you to start a project on one device and then continue it on another.
Currently Photoshop for iPad is expected to launch in 2019, but we should learn more this fall.
