Adobe Is Bringing Photoshop to iPad
The move marks a change of stategy for Adobe, which now wants its software to run everywhere.

(CCM) — Adobe is developing a full version of its flagship Photoshop image manipulation software which will run on Apple's iPad, Bloomberg has revealed.

The move is part of a shift in strategy for Adobe, which now intends to make all its software products run on as many devices as possible in order to maximize its subscription revenues, the report says.

Adobe will unveil the new iPad app at its MAX creative conference which will be held in Los Angeles in October, but iPad users will have to wait until next year at the earliest before the app is launched. The delay is due to the complexity of porting an app of this complexity to iOS, people with knowledge of the plan said in the report.

Scott Belsky, an Adobe chief product officer, confirmed that Photoshop and other applications will be made to run on the iPad. "My aspiration is to get these on the market as soon as possible," he said in an interview. "There’s a lot required to take a product as sophisticated and powerful as Photoshop and make that work on a modern device like the iPad."

Once the iPad version is complete, users will be able to edit images on their tablets and then continue working on the edits on different devices such as laptops or desktop PCs running Photoshop, the report added.
