While there are positively creatives who take a shot at iPads, they commonly need to swing to applications like Pixelmator that (in the same class as they are) don't fit effectively into an Adobe-driven work process.
Software giant Adobe is porting its iconic Photoshop programme to the tablet with a dedicated app for Apple's iPad. Instead, there have been lightweight versions like Photoshop Express, or apps that focus on specific Photoshop features, like retouching.
That's about to change, however, as Adobe on Monday announced Photoshop CC for iPad, which will feature a revamped mobile-friendly interface designed specifically for a touch experience.
Though Adobe has been investing heavily in mobile apps for the last several years, there hasn't been a full version of Photoshop available for iOS.
In related news, Adobe is also previewing "Project Gemini", a drawing app for iPad and other platforms.
Scott Belsky, chief product officer and executive vice president of Creative Cloud at Adobe, said the new apps deliver meaningful value to its users by transforming creative workflows across devices and platforms.

Adobe is launching a suite of iPad apps for graphics pros, including a full version of Photoshop. With Photoshop CC coming to the iPad in 2019, we could see Apple start a transition to custom processors in the Mac in 2020.
Adobe is also hyped about augmented reality, so they're rolling out Project Aero, a way for creators to bring their AR ideas to life.
To sum it up, Adobe believes their Creative Cloud release will better attune itself with user requests.
Photoshop CC gets a new Content-Aware Fill workspace that gives users greater control when working with images.
New Freeform Gradients in Illustrator CC that enable the creation of natural gradients. For example, with the new frame tool, you can create image boxes to insert images in specific sizes and ratios, just like it is done in InDesign. In addition, we announced that we will sync PSDs and other content across an ecosystem of new creative applications. And, will it be made available as part of the Photography subscription level Adobe offers.
