Photoshop turns 30 today, and to celebrate this massive milestone, Adobe is rolling out some handy new tools for the iPad version of its app.
The latest update brings an Object Selection tool and Type settings. They help bring Photoshop for iPad a little bit closer to the desktop version, and they’re part of Adobe’s mission to deliver a “continuous stream” of new features.
There are some nice additions for Photoshop on desktop, too.
February 19, 1990: Adobe ships the first commercial version of its soon-to-be-iconic Photoshop photo editing software.
Released exclusively for the Macintosh, the groundbreaking software debuts for Mac System 6.0.3. Priced at $895, Photoshop quickly becomes the standard editing tool for graphics professionals. Whether they work for advertising agencies, news organizations — or, frankly, anywhere else — Photoshop users take advantage of the program’s digital darkroom tools to seamlessly manipulate images.
A promised update to Photoshop on iPad debuted today. A notable new feature employs artificial intelligence to enable users to easily select the subjects of images. The latest version also makes accessing cloud storage much faster.
This is the first in a planned series of improvements for the iPad version of this professional image-editing software
It’s no secret that Photoshop for iPad is unfinished. A lot of fans have accepted that and are enjoying it for what it is. But others are not, and they’ve forced one Adobe chief to defend its current state.
Scott Belsky, the company’s chief product officer, took to Twitter this week to explain Adobe’s process — and to promise that Photoshop for iPad will get better.
Adobe’s creative apps are the industry standard for all kinds of visual creative professionals. But being so powerful, they’re also super-complex. And they can be pretty intimidating to learn. That makes this massively discounted bundle of Adobe Creative Cloud lessons extremely enticing.
