Introducing Photoshop for the iPad

Greetings, dekeItariat. This week’s free Deke’s Techniques episode features one of the latest updates to the Photoshop 2020 ecosystem: Photoshop for iPad.

We’ve seen a lot of “Photoshop” labeled apps come along over the years, so I had to call Deke (who is recording episodes in California this week) and interview him on what made this one different, aside from the fact that they’re actually calling it Photoshop and not Photoshop-Insert-Cool-Sounding-Last-Name-Here.

What makes it different from the apps of the past? Well, according to Deke, the main difference is that it’s a really good app. For more on the features, check out the video.

All I know is that this one seems here to stay, even if it is definitely a 1.0 version of the software. I know this because Deke is threatening that Santa Claus might need to replace my first generation iPad mini from 2012 (beloved, and courtesy of Bruce and Lynda) with something that will let me play along (and ask insightful questions) in the months ahead.

If you’d like to see what this app can do, but are sticking to Photoshop proper for the time being, I’ve attached Deke’s sample composition below so you can check out the file for yourself.
