Adobe on Tuesday delivered a new bundle for iPad users that provides access to its Photoshop and Fresco apps for just $9.99 a month. That’s half the price users would have paid for both apps before.

In addition, Photoshop on iPad now has the ability to automatically find and update missing fonts in your work, and there’s a brand-new coloring book to enjoy.

For many creatives, Photoshop and Fresco go hand-in-hand. They work great together, and allow for artwork that just wouldn’t be the same without both apps. So Adobe is making them more affordable.

Its new bundle, open to everyone, gets you both Photoshop and Fresco for iPad for just $9.99 a month.

Bag Adobe’s new Photoshop bundle today

You can bag the bundle by subscribing to Photoshop for iPad, or by upgrading to Fresco premium through the App Store. Creative Cloud customers who buy Photoshop through are also eligible.

What’s more, Fresco premium is available to early Photoshop for iPad adopters who already have a Creative Cloud membership at no additional charge.

So, not only do you get two terrific Adobe apps for the price of one, but you get monthly feature updates, Adobe Fonts, more than a thousand additional brushes, and lots more.

For some inspiration on how to use Photoshop and Fresco together, check out Adobe’s blog.

Adobe Fonts auto-activation

In addition to the new bundle, Adobe today updated Photoshop on iPad to add Adobe Fonts auto-activation. When you load PSD files that contain missing fonts, it will automatically fetch and install them for you.

A new Adobe Coloring Book featuring artwork from Rob Biddulph, Martina Heiduczek, and Andreas Preis is also available today. It’s part of Adobe effort to roll out new books every week this spring.

This, as well as past Coloring Books from the series, are available on Adobe’s website.
