Adobe opens Photoshop for iPad beta signups ahead of 2019 release

“In an email to Creative Cloud users tonight,” Miller reports, “Adobe is prompting customers to apply for the Photoshop for iPad beta program.

Adobe’s Photoshop move is yet another stamp of legitimacy for iOS and iPad Pro, the combination of which has for some time now, even before Photoshop, equaled “real computing.”MacDailyNews, October 17, 2018

We find that there are many older users longing to make iPad work like a laptop, because that’s what they know.

Take a look at a twelve-year-old who’s only really ever used an iPad for personal computing. It’s an eyeopener. It’s like looking into the future.

The answer isn’t to try to make the iPad into a MacBook. The answer is to provide all the tools possible in iOS for developers to make robust apps that can take advantage of the multi-touch paradigm. — MacDailyNews, May 16, 2017

  1. 🤣🤣🤣 Left Adobe forever, even InDesign lately. All m job is now done with Affinity: no monthly (and perpetual) ransoms, but a more than reasonnable buying price.

  2. Sorry, MDN, I disagree. Do you have children in school? I’m thinkin’, no. They need the skills of a computer, too, kids that have only ever used mobile devices, their skills are nothing to brag about, and that is across the board. Also, this isn’t actually the ‘full’ Photoshop. Pixelmator already exists for more casual users; I don’t know why a pro would opt for a neutered version of PS full of the compromises of a small device, and yes, young people that want to pursue these professions are going to need a full skillset. The iPad is great, but it’s only great for what it’s great at.
