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

The software company is planning to reveal the app at its annual Adobe MAX creativity conference in October, people familiar with the matter tell Bloomberg. The company is now going through a multi-year strategy-shift which involves transitioning its desktop apps to a cross-platform architecture.

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. While engineering delays could affect the release date, the app is now on track to arrive on the App Store at some point in 2019.

"My aspiration is to get these on the market as soon as possible", Belsky said in an interview.

Adobe already makes photo-editing software for the iPad, but Photoshop Express, Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Mix, and Lightroom Mobile are stripped-down apps that are designed specifically for mobile devices. It would certainly be a big win for Apple to get a full version of Photoshop on iOS.

Adobe's next-gen applications will also bring the ability to make edits on the fly. Also, Apple has been pushing the iPad as a laptop replacement for a while now-showing off a full version of Photoshop could help it further convince some users to ditch their laptops and opt for Apple's tablet. These modern apps will have mobile-friendly interfaces and will be delivered alongside the existing desktop versions of Photoshop at first.

A full iPad version of Photoshop seemed inevitable considering Adobe's push to modernize and the tablet's popularity. If Bloomberg's information is correct, however, we won't have that long to wait to see whether Adobe is about to make life easier for iPad-wielding creative pros. For years, Microsoft's Surface devices - especially the Surface Pro - undercut iPads like the iPad Pro by being able to run full versions of Adobe's Creative Cloud apps.
