According to a story published by Bloomberg, a Adobe should release a full version of the Photoshop for iPad as part of a new strategy to make their products intercompatible across multiple devices and, of course, increase sales.
The giant would be planning to announce the new app at the conference Adobe MAX, which happen in October. People familiar with the matter told the Bloomberg the app is expected to hit the market in 2019, but no date has been set as there may be delays in product development.
Scott Belsky, director of products for the Creative Cloud website, confirmed the information obtained from the website and added, saying that the company is adapting other applications for multiplatform versions, further integrating software and devices.
My aspiration is to get them to the market as quickly as possible. you need to have a product as sophisticated and powerful as Photoshop and make it work on a modern device like the iPad. We need to bring our products to this collaborative era in the cloud.
Adobe already offers basic versions of Photoshop for the iPhone and iPad, such as Photoshop Fix apps for basic touch-ups, Photoshop Express for simple photo editing and collage creation, Photoshop Sketch for drawings and Photoshop Mix for creating images with multiple layers.
With the new versions of Adobe apps for iOS, users will have access to the full versions of these software (as on the desktop) via the iPad. In addition, it will be possible to start editing on one device and continue on another device.
The novelty is even more welcome for users who have already begun to migrate from notebooks to tablets. Microsoft Surface owners, for example, already enjoy the full version of Photoshop, since the device runs the desktop version of Windows; as the iPad runs iOS, it was never possible to run the full version of the software like on macOS.
As indicated by the MacRumors, the application is likely to be called Photoshop CC and should be made available for free on the App Store. However, as Lightroom CC (which is already available), you may need to purchase a Creative Cloud subscription to access all features, including syncing between devices.
Creative Cloud subscription plans range from R $ 35 / ms, for the most basic version, up to R $ 280 / ms, for the version that includes all Adobe suite creation apps. In addition, teachers and students have a special offer, in which all apps, in addition to access to their own portfolio website, special fonts and 100GB of cloud storage, cost R $ 71 / month.
