Adobe announces full Photoshop for iPad, coming in 2019

Adobe announces full Photoshop for iPad, coming in 2019

The target demographic for Adobe Premiere Rush is YouTubers and other web content creators.

There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details on the Photoshop CC availability for the iPad next year.

If you work with video at all, you probably know all about Adobe Premiere Pro. It's intelligent enough to automatically lower and raise the volume of music when speech is detected, and fully integrates with Premiere Pro for further editing. Photoshop CC on the iPad will officially launch in 2019, but Adobe and Apple gave a demo of what creators can expect on this front during the Adobe Max keynote in Los Angeles.

We first heard about Premiere Rush over the summer, when it was called Project Rush.

Announced at Adobe's Max conference on Monday, the app will bring the power and functionality desktop users are accustomed to. If you start editing on your desktop and need to hit the road, for example, you can continue your project on your phone. Rush uses Audition to auto-detect the audio in your videos, so you can duck with one click, and offers easy ways to improve sound quality and reduce background noise. On computers, it requires decent specs, tons of RAM, tons of storage, and some know-how on how to make it work.


Microsoft has made a concerted effort to attract the Adobe heavy creative types with its Surface Studio and Surface Pro devices by leveraging its deep partnership with Adobe and tweaks both companies have made to support one another's efforts. Moreover, you can apply the same effects and filters as you would do on a desktop. At the end, you can directly export your finished product to various social media platforms, including YouTube (naturally).

Premiere Rush CC is available for $9.99/month to individuals, $19.99/month to teams and $29.99/month to enterprise customers.

Adobe has finally delivered what many photographers and artists have wanted for years. You may be a woodwind player in an orchestra or a guitar player in a rock band.

Photoshop for iPad will be available free to all Creative Cloud subscribers, but there's no word now on whether a standalone purchase or iPad-only subscription will be possible. The software, which has been rumored for some time, will be available in 2019.
