Same Code as in Desktop
“You needn’t worry about conversions, compressions, imports or exports. Photoshop on the iPad supports large files and many, many layers, just like Photoshop on your desktop and preserving your data across devices. The edits you make, whether making layer adjustments, masking or spot healing, will produce the same results across devices because the app is powered by the same desktop engine,” Pam Clark who is in-charge of Adobe Photoshop said in a blog post.
How Good Is The Experience?
Present version of Photoshop for iPad can be described as basic considering the features that will be added. Now, it has functions like compositing, masking and retouching. The Photoshop toolbar is on the left and has been designed for touchpads. Layers are on the right goes well in the small screen. A slew of additions is planned soon after Max 2019, a conference that will be convened this week. The additions will be included based on how customers use Photoshop on the iPad initially. Photoshop on the iPad can seamlessly be connected to Photoshop on the desktop with integrated Cloud documents system.
Cloud Documents Improve Access and Editing
With Cloud Documents, one can access and edit the same Photoshop document across surfaces without unnecessary imports, conversions, quality loss or exports.
