    Little too late, already dumped Adobe for all things Serif and very satisfied.

    I’ll be amazed if they pull this off without cutting the iPads battery life by about 80%.

    I love how every single comment here sounds like "I don't care fuck Photoshop".

    Maybe 1 exception.

    I'm actually pretty stoked about this. Will wait to see the reviews to see how stable and how "full" it is, but this sounds like a reason to purchase an iPad to me.

    Remember people, it's just a tool, and has its uses.

    if they bring their subscription pricing along with it then they’re not going to convince me to switch over from Serif

      I guess they would. In my opinion, however, the more useful services they add to the subscription, the more the costs are warranted. Admittedly, for people only using 1 app it's too expensive ... but I think they also have that PS/AI-only tier?

    They should do illustrator instead, Photoshop is just a hammer.

      Illustrator is coming too. (source: macStories if I recall correctly)

    Cool. I barely use photoshop anymore, but it would be pretty rad on an iPad pro.

    They’ll churn out whatever and call it “full Photoshop”.

    I'd prefer they focus that energy on allowing me to export Adobe Comp layouts on iPad to Adobe XD on desktop.

    What I want to know is if they are bringing Photoshop to Android / Chromebooks. I love my Chromebook, and I'm completely happy with Figma, Atomic, Gravit, Polarr, etc. BUT more tools is always better. I can't repeat it enough, but kids are not using Apple / Windows, etc. (I'm sure this depends where you live.) My son, and all of his friends are Chromebook users. They think Apple and Windows devices are for old people. I even love the Chromebook experience. If you aren't entrenched in OS specific hardware, and using Figma...give it a go.

      That may change if they end up with jobs in the pro industry. Chrome books, from my experience are toy like. Could it be that kids have them because they are cheap machines with lots of free software.

        That's an interesting thought, but the fact is that generationally they are using them. And with time that generation will be in the workforce. Will they graduate to Windows or Mac OS? Or will they adapt the tools they grew up with?

      The current version of ChromeOS’s interface looks almost exactly like Windows 10. Except its a little bit faster than your average Windows machine and more limited in what you can do.

    In my company, the Adobe suite is a pretty ubiquitous tool, and it surprises me how many people here are knocking the product. I'd be interested to know the ratio of freelancers vs agency people here holding these views, because I'd be willing to bet the biggest gripe people really have is the pricing model.

      True, companies like where I'm working at still uses Adobe product. It also still uses slow Enterprise products that shouldn't be used anymore. Reason being, our network (I work for a global company with hundreds of companies around the world) is still getting pretty deals from companies like MS and Adobe. I still uses Adobe because it is installed on my work laptop but I prefer to use Affinity Photo and Designer. It's just faster, reliable and a delight to use.

      I've got nothing against photoshop, I just don't really need it for 95% of the stuff I do. I only really use it for placing mocks (PSBs) and making shitty gifs that i post to dribbble.
