- iPad for Photoshop will be launched later this year.
iPad’s Photoshop is expected to appear by the end of 2019. However, beta testers have been seen complaining about its lack of features. Adobe has refuted these claims saying that the beta version obviously does not include all the features that will naturally be added to the shipping version of Photoshop. In addition to that, Adobe also shares that the company will continue developing the app.
It’s been a year since Adobe and Apple announced the introduction of Photoshop to the iPad. Around six months after their announcement, Adobe started accepting beta testers. Currently, the official release of Photoshop for the iPad is still on schedule by the end of 2019. That said, a few beta testers are complaining that the software of Photoshop for iPad is extremely basic and lacks some important key features. They have also claimed that even though Adobe says that Photoshop for iPad will be a full-blown version instead of the initial iPad apps that were scaled-down, certain core functions of the app are still missing.
An unnamed tester even shares that feature-wise, the app fails like a beefed-up version of the existing iPad apps. Moreover, it does not look like real Photoshop, which contradicts the advertisements released by Adobe about the app. This unnamed tester even went on to say that although it is understandable that the app is based on the code of desktop of Photoshop, it does not feel all that advanced right now. In response to these complaints, Adobe has shared that the beta test version of Photoshop for iPad lacks a lot of features because it is just a test version, and it was not possible to deploy those features at this stage.
Explanations Of Adobe Regarding The Rudimentary Photoshop Version For iPad
Adobe’s Chief Product Officer, Scott Belsky said that the first official release of the app will contain all these unspecified features. Still, it would not be a complete version of the desktop Photoshop. He went on to say that if Adobe decides to launch all the features of Photoshop for iPad that have been accumulated over the span of 25 years in one day, then it would not really serve their customers as well as their needs in the best possible manner. Adobe also added that this is just the first version of Photoshop for iPad, and they plan to develop it significantly in the future.
Belsky went on to state that this product is the absolute best in the world when it comes to specific workflows. Hence, they do not need to apologize for the lack of certain features in the beta version because it’s what their customers need right now. He even said that he is super proud of their achievements so far, and their customers will see the quality of the products by themselves once it is launched in the market.
