Full Version of Adobe Photoshop Set to be Available on iPad in 2019

Since it debuted in the 90’s, Photoshop has undergone a innumerable advancements. Since it was initially sold with Barneyscan-branded scanners, it was almost named Baneyscan XP, but that all changed when Thomas and John Knoll sold it to Adobe Systems. 30 years later, Adobe Photoshop is so popular that it’s become a verb used by many when referring to photo editing. The latest advancement in the pipeline? A full version of Adobe Photoshop on iPad.

On the other hand, Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Inc. introduced the iPad with the ultimate vision of it replacing laptops. Unfortunately, there was a reduction in the growth of iPad sales over the last few years, but the recent introduction of Pro models has sparked interest in the product again. While these models have the same capabilities of a notebook, some things are still amiss, most notably: the full version of Adobe Photoshop, so it goes without saying that giving iPad users access to the full version of Adobe Photoshop will give Apple a huge push in achieving Steve Jobs’ vision.

According to anonymous sources, Adobe plans to reveal the full version of Photoshop for iPad at the annual MAX conference in October this year and plans to make it available during the course of 2019.

This bold move is a win-win-win situation. It’s awesome news for photo and image editing enthusiasts and professionals, because only mini-versions of Photoshop are currently available on Apple’s App Store. For Apple Inc, this advancement is a step towards Apple Inc’s plans for their operating platform iOS11 to mimic the functionalities of desktops. For Adobe Systems, having the full version of Photoshop available to iPad users will meet the requirements of professionals needing to work away from their desktops, while satisfying the more casual Photoshop users.

When approached by Bloomberg to comment on the rumours pertaining to these plans, Chief Product Officer of Adobe, Scott Belsky confirmed that Adobe is, in fact, working towards a cross platform version of Photoshop and suggested that this would be the case for the other Creative Cloud apps as well. However, he made no mention of a timeline. During his interview, he stated, “My aspiration is to get these on the market as soon as possible. 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.”

Previously, Adobe released new versions of Lighroom CC, offering feature equivalence across all desktop and mobile platforms for iPad, iPhone, Mac and Microsoft Windows. Not only do these apps sync their libraries across all devices, recent updates make it possible to sync editing presets, providing users with a seamless editing experience across all platforms too.

Augmented Reality Just Got Real With Adobe’s Project Aero

Augmented Reality Just Got Real With Adobe’s Project Aero

Earlier this month, Adobe released the preview of their new AR (augmented reality) authoring tool and multi-platform system called Project Aero. Using immersive technology, this interface blurs the line between the digital/simulated world and the physical world, creating the sense of immersion.

Adobe has been transforming the ways in which people have been creating for print, web and mobile devices for more than 35 years, and the ability to design using immersive technology will unleash forms of creative expression, business models and overall customer experiences beyond our imagination.

Apple is in the process of developing a leading augmented reality platform, so it should come as no surprise that Adobe, known for continuously pushing creative limits and constantly innovating to be able to support exciting new mediums, announced that they will be working with the developers and designers of Apple to create these phenomenal augmented reality experiences.

Adobe are also collaborating with Pixar and Apple by adding support for USDZ to Adobe Creative Cloud apps and services. Creatives will be able to create and design AR (augmented reality) content from creative tools like Creative Cloud’s Dimension CC and Photoshop CC and convert their assets to USDZ that can be incorporated into the Apple ecosystem. Here’s a peek as to what we expect from Project Aero:

Augmented Reality requires pivotal re-thinking of what it actually means to be able to create with new technologies, tools and interactive models, so every Adobe business group is thinking about, planning, conceptualizing and working towards this awesome new medium of design.

Since the development of AR content requires a combination of both creative and technological proficiency, Project Aero will be delivering a platform for both creatives and developers to build simple augmented reality experiences and scenes using Apple’s ARKit. Immersive content created by designers can be brought into Xcode for any further development and refinement.

Adobe teamed up with fifteen artists for The Festival of the Impossible, a 3-day festival held in San Francisco from 8 – 10 June 2018, showcasing artwork that explores the impossible at the first-ever largescale immersive art exhibition, as a prelude of what we can look forward to.

This is the start of Adobe’s journey towards extending the digital experiences of users beyond the screen, and we can’t wait for the next Adobe Max conference later this year to see more of what this remarkable company has in store for us.
