At MAX 2019 today, Adobe announced an impressive expansion of its products. For one thing, full Photoshop is now available for iPads, something that was announced a while back and is now generally available. Version 1.0 focuses on "top workflows", and Adobe says that it will expand the product as it learns how people use Photoshop on a mobile device.
It does have a redesigned UI, since an iPad is a different type of device from a PC. Clearly, it's meant to be more touch-centric. You can open and edit your PSD files from anywhere, and connect it with your PC via Adobe Cloud.
Photoshop for PCs is also getting an update today, with Sensei AI and machine learning. There are new editing capabilities, and so on. The update will arrive via the Creative Cloud app.
Other apps generally available today are Adobe Fresco and Aero. Fresco is available on both Windows and for iPad, and on Windows, it supports ARM64 PCs. While Fresco is a drawing and painting app, Aero is made to create mixed reality experiences. With Aero, you can turn layered PSDs into augmented reality.
But that's not all, because Adobe also announced that Illustrator is also coming to the iPad, although that won't be here until next year. You can sign up for the private beta now.
