Full Photoshop for the Apple iPad? Apparently in October say “Sources”…

We have always maintained that the iPad (I refuse to simply call it “iPad” without the “the” – same for THE iPhone) is a beast designed for consuming data, not creating it.

The same goes for Android based tablets by the way in my view.

But Adobe apparently thinks differently and rumours abound that the full Adobe Creative Suite will be ported by 2019, starting with the venerable Photoshop in October of this year (presumably announced at the annual Adobe MAX conference).

Of course this will not hurt subscription sales one bit, and indeed should boost them hugely.

Adobe Creative Cloud CPO Scott Belsky confirmed the development of a cross-platform Photoshop (and other Creative Cloud apps) to Bloomberg without providing a timeframe, saying: “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.

Of course, having full Photoshop would bring the iPad more in line with Microsoft’s Surface, which runs full Windows 10 and can already the desktop version of Photoshop. The fact that even iPad Pro tablets only run iOS  has limited the iPad’s potential for photography professionals.

It will be an interesting scenario and I look forward to seeing the outcome. I for one do not relish the thought of a small screen and stylus operated editing of video. Images may work. We’ll see…
