The wait is over! You can finally download Adobe Photoshop iPad app from the App Store right now on a compatible device.

It’s important to note that Photoshop for iPad is available for devices running iPadOS only and not iOS-running iPhones. For iPhone, Adobe recommends using the old Adobe Photoshop Express version of the app.

If you are a Adobe CC subscriber, the good news is that Photoshop for iPad is included as part of that subscription. For non-subscribers though, Adobe is making Photoshop for iPad available as a free 30-day trial after which you will need to subscribe to a qualified Creative Cloud (CC) membership, either via in-app purchase, or directly via Adobe.

The main features of Photoshop for iPad includes:

Create with full PSDs:
Create on your iPad with the Photoshop features you know and love, from retouching and compositing to spot healing and blend modes. Layers? They’re all here. Resolution? No difference. Your PSDs are exactly the same, whether you’re working on your desktop or a mountain top.

Familiar tools, fingertip control:
Work with your Layer stack and Toolbar tools just like you do on your desktop. Swipe, pinch, tap, scribble, slide — you’ll feel closer to your work than ever before. And with the context-aware UI, only the core tools and panes are displayed, so you can focus on your canvas, not the clutter.

Work anywhere:
It’s simple to keep your PSDs in sync across devices because now you don’t have to. Your documents are automatically saved to Adobe’s cloud as you work and available on any device running Photoshop.

Compositing:
Make precision selections with the Quick Selection tool, Lasso tool, and advanced selection options such as feathering. Use the paint brush to mask in and out certain parts of your image to create sophisticated composites.

Retouching:
Edit and enhance images and remove unwanted elements with features such as spot healing and clone stamp.

As mentioned in an earlier report, the first version of Photoshop for iPad is missing some key features but Adobe promises to bring them in near-future versions via app updates:

This first version focuses on core compositing and retouching tools designed to work best on the iPad with Apple Pencil and touch. And we’re just getting started. For future versions, we’re looking at enhancing our tools used for brushes, masks, refining edges, and selecting smart subjects. Plus, we want to make it easier to access your brushes and fonts in Creative Cloud.
