Adobe Creative Cloud unveils next generation of CC apps

None of these, however, can match the functionality provided by the desktop-based Photoshop CC, with Adobe crediting its arrival on iPad to the "beefier power of devices". Judging from a preview the company gave to the press, it looks impressive, with the sort of deep support for image tweaking and layers that have always defined Photoshop on Macs and Windows PCs. While Adobe has offered various Creative Cloud mobile products over the years, including Express, Sketch, Mix, and Fix, these only bring some Photoshop features to iOS users.
This version of Photoshop CC for iPad incorporates "natural touch gestures", as indicated by Adobe. Further, there also is the Photoshop toolbar as well, which means long-timers with the app will have it really easy with the iPad Pro version of the same.

One of the designers behind the app is Kyle Webster, who first came to prominence developing a suite of brushes for Photoshop that was so popular, Adobe hired him and made his brushes free to subscribers, he told Business Insider.
Adobe is bringing Photoshop CC to the iPad. With new iPad Pro models expected to be announced in the coming weeks, and a reported focus on significant iPad features coming in iOS 13, there's no time like the present for the full power of Photoshop to make its way to Apple's tablet. Yes, the same one you use with the Apple Pencil, most likely. Adobe Unleashes Wave of Imaging Innovation Photoshop CC for the iPad, Project Aero, Project Gemini, Dimension CC 2.0 and a major update to Photoshop CC. Photoshop CC has been redesigned for a modern touch experience and will now open and edit native PSD files, while the latter combines raster, vector and the ability to draw with dynamic brushes into a single app built for drawing.
It's going to start with the iPad, but Adobe is planning to include other operating systems and computing devices as soon as the technology is ready.
For app creators, Adobe is excited about the enhancements to its XD app. The desktop version of Photoshop CC, meanwhile, now has an expanded Content Aware Fill workspace (below) among other revisions.
