It'll also work with pencil devices, allowing you to have precision when working. Anything you do … [Read more...] about Adobe announces Photoshop for iPad, major updates to Photoshop CC
You might have seen an article by Bloomberg that came out earlier this month, discussing Adobe's plans to create a full-fledged version of Photoshop for iPad tablets. This won't be like Adobe's current Photoshop app offerings for iOS — instead, you'll be able to do everything you can do in the desktop version of Photoshop CC, right on your iPad. It's supposed to be revealed at the Adobe MAX Conference this October, with a release date sometime in 2019. But this is really just the continuum of Adobe adapting for smaller, touch-screen … [Read more...] about Photoshop CC is coming to iPad in 2019
Holy crap. I caved. I really bought an iPad. Not just any iPad, the newest 9.7" iPad Pro! I'm not new to the iPad world. I deal with them every day I work!

In what certainly counts as the least surprising Apple keynote in recent years, the company teased two new products on Monday that shrink existing products: a new 4-inch iPhone and 9.7-inch iPad Pro. While the phone is aimed squarely at new customers, the iPad seems to answer many of the complaints existing Apple devotees had of their massive 12-inch iPad Pro which hit the streets six months ago. The new more svelte iPad Pro packs almost all of the processing punch of it's bigger sibling into the more hand-friendly 9.7-inch form factor 200 … [Read more...] about There’s a New, Smaller iPad Pro.

Not long ago, Adobe released an app for the iPad. But with their most recent update to the Creative Cloud, Lightroom Mobile just got a whole lot better. Since the update, I have been playing with the apps on my iPad and iPhone, and wanted to share some of my findings. I downloaded Lightroom to my iPad as soon as it was announced a few months back.

But now, with some new … [Read more...] about Lightroom Mobile for iPad and iPhone
