After a long wait and many questions, the Photoshop for iPad finally reached the App Store earlier this month. The launch, however, was controversial: even with Adobe’s prior notice that the application would not have all the features of its desktop counterpart, users criticized the new product for its supposed simplicity and inability to perform simple tasks, very common in Photoshop for macOS or Windows.
Because Adobe seems to have taken the criticism seriously: the giant today published on its official blog a preview of resources that are about to reach the application, noting that user feedback has been a “critical part of the process” of developing the company’s products. company.

According to the giant, there is no iPad app with such a powerful and easy to use selection tool.

Photoshop users for iPad will get, for example, their own version of the feature Refine Edges (Refine Edge), which gives you total control over a selection and allows fine adjustment to complicated elements, such as hair or animal hair.
In the first half of next year, the application will also gain the brushes sensitivity adjustment and rotation Canvas, as already seen in Adobe Fresco. We will also have integration between Photoshop and Lightroom on the iPad, for those who use both tools.
