Adobe plans a full version of Photoshop for iPad in 2019

Lightroom CC gives us an idea of how Adobe will approach a full version

Bloomberg first broke the news, reporting that the full Photoshop app is now scheduled to hit the iTunes App Store for the iPad sometime in 2019, but the app itself will be announced later this year in October at the annual Adobe MAX conference.

Confirming that his company is working on a new cross-platform version of not just Photoshop but other apps as well, Adobe's chief of Creative Cloud software Scott Belsky stopped short of confirming when we can expect to see any of them start to pop up in the App Store. Theres a lot required to take a product as sophisticated and powerful as Photoshop and make that work on a modern device like the iPad. Adobe is now developing a full version of Photoshop on the iPad, and the company plans to introduce it at its MAX conference in October. "We need to bring our products into this cloud-first collaborative era".

Although plenty of Photoshop alternatives already exist on the iPad, photo editors may finally be able to use the real thing next year.

Photoshop will be the first app to get a full version on the iPad, followed by Illustrator. Belsky also noted that previously mobile devices have not been robust enough to run the program; however, newer versions of the iPad Pro are now powerful enough.

While the news of these plans will be exciting for Photoshop diehards, it's not surprising.

By launching for the iPad, Photoshop could become the single dominant photo editing app on that device as it is for Mac and MacBook users.

Apple has been promoting the iPad as a full computer but the lack of full-power applications has left space for solutions from Microsoft, despite lacking most of the mobile applications available on the iPad. The forthcoming program would presumably allow users to do everything possible in Photoshop on a desktop on their iPad.
