Adobe is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Photoshop by adding new features to the iPad and Mac app. For Mac users, perhaps the biggest UI improvement is the addition of Dark mode. The mode will adhere to the system-wide theme so if you enable Dark mode on your Mac, Photoshop will also automatically switch to a dark theme.
Adobe, one of the world’s most popular brands for photo editing applications, is now offering “Sign-in with Apple” option for its Creative Cloud as well as for its various other apps.
The first version of Adobe Photoshop for the iPad was released earlier this month with huge fanfare, only to disappoint users due to the lack of a few essential features. Following extremely poor user reviews of its image editing app on the App Store (an average of two stars), Adobe has unveiled via its blog that it will roll out new features to Photoshop with upcoming updates.
A report from last week claimed that Adobe still intends to launch Photoshop for iPad before the end of this year. It further claimed that the app was rudimentary in nature and not a full-fledged replacement of the desktop version that many users were hoping for. John Gruber from Daring Fireball has provided more information about Photoshop for iPad and how it is the real deal.
Last year, Adobe had announced that it was bringing full-fledged Photoshop CC to the iPad in 2019. Since then, the company has been mum about the app, though it did start accepting beta applications for it in May this year. A new report confirms that Adobe is on track to release Photoshop CC for the iPad in 2019.
Adobe has made its first major app available on the Mac App Store: Adobe Lightroom. The app is a part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud Suite and while it is free to download, one will have to subscribe to Adobe’s CC suite to use the app once the trial period ends.
Last year, Adobe announced that it would be releasing the full version of Photoshop to the iPad in 2019. Now, the company is sending out emails to Creative Cloud subscribers informing them that they can sign up to beta test Photoshop CC for iPad.
The sweet spot for most subscription services seems to be between $5 and $15 per month. Of course, that can differ depending on the service and what’s included. And while price hikes (and price drops) do happen, most users can expect a bit of a warning before it goes into effect.
Earlier this month, it was reported that a bug within Adobe Premiere Pro software was causing some MacBook Pro speaker units to blow out.
Adobe will be showing off a full version of Photoshop for the iPad at its annual MAX creative conference in October this year. The app has been in development for 3-4 years and will be released in 2019. Adobe is making this move under its new strategy that will see it bring many of its other apps to the iPad as well.
