Adobe launching the Photoshop app for the iPad should ideally have been a moment for the ages. But it did not pan out that way. Though most iPad users are happy as they can create illustrations and designs wherever they are, some feel that there are major differences between the standard and mobile version of Photoshop. Adobe has, now, said that it will bring important updates for iPad users over the next year, trying to match it with the desktop version. According to a blog post by Adobe, by the end of 2019, iPad Photoshop users will be able to "Select Subject" which uses the Adobe Sensei AI machines learning technology and will allow users to select the subject of an image to fasten up complex selections. "There is no other iPad app on the market with this type of powerful yet easy to use selection capability," it said.
Cloud documents are also expected to become faster from present and it will help users save documents between Photoshop on iPad and desktop. What Adobe Photoshop iPad users could see in the first half of 2020:
Refine Edge Brush
