So far I’m liking the app. True, it’s not in parity with the desktop Creative Cloud version of Photoshop. It’s pretty suitable for my needs. (Though I do look forward to smart object compatibility). Pricing will make or break Adobe’s presence on my iPad. I’m fine paying for a subscription but I encourage exploration of bundle pricing or lower cost pricing. As it stands I feel I have to decide between Fresco or Photoshop (each $9.99) —and then apparently Illustrator is around the corner. I’m assuming that will be another $9.99. I implore Adobe to make these products cheap enough that I don’t need to decide. Look at Apple Arcade —everyone I know feels that Apple made that a great value. Thus I’m paying for Apple Arcade even though I don’t play that many games. BUT it’s inexpensive enough that I don’t think about it. Or Microsoft’s model: for $6.99 a month you get the entire Office Suite and 1TB of storage. I’m not saying Adobe needs to go that low but you can see how that kind of pricing is very inviting, especially to amateur hobbyists.
As a product manager and designer myself I do sympathize with this kind of reaction to a major release. But it wasn’t unavoidable. It was waaaay easier to spend the last year thinking that an iPad version of photoshop that had feature parity with the desktop version was coming. Many of the outlets reporting on the announcement left out the caveat about v1, and even the official Adobe announcement article only had a single bullet point mentioning it. Most people who read about it walked away with the impression of “full” and “real” photoshop, not “a limited feature v1 that will grow overtime”. From an announcement hype standpoint that’s fine. From the standpoint of expectation setting, that was precisely what led to the blowback currently manifesting itself as one star reviews. The optics and narrative mistakes of the whole thing aside, what y’all have shipped in this v1 is really solid. It’s obviously limited in functionality, but everything that did make the cut is smooth, easy to pick up with knowledge of desktop photoshop, and just feels really good to use. If future functionality is added with the same care, I’ll very much look forward to trying it out.
BLUF: Overpriced, there are other programs (even from Adobe) that do it better and it’s not ready for prime time. Adobe, I’m not sure what you were thinking with this other than “hey, I’m sure we can dupe some poor suckers into paying monthly fees because we call it ‘Photoshop,’” but I hope you’re wrong on that. You’ve waited so long to bring full programs to the iPad that we’ve all found alternatives we like. Hell, for true photography editing, I use your Lightroom on iPad. When I want to do photo illustration, I use Procreate (and so do a LOT of other people), which is awesome. So you’ve got to bring your A-game if you want us to go back to Photoshop. But you didn’t. You released another half-baked program, gimped out without all the features of the desktop, and you want us to pay a subscription fee? I want whatever you’re all smoking, because apparently it’s good stuff. For years we’ve heard you tell us “tablets aren’t powerful enough, there are too many limitations with iOS to create apps like you’re asking.” Weird that other companies have managed it. Just like Quark failed to adapt and died, so will you. The first company that comes up with good pagination software for a iPad gets my money, and I’m betting it’s not you, judging by Comp and your “full version” of Photoshop. Which is too bad; I used to love your programs.
I’ve been using PS desktop since 1995 so I’ve been really looking forward to this. The hype said we would get the full version of Adobe PS on iPad Pro. Some people even bought the iPad Pro in anticipation of this. I don’t think anyone really thought it would be a perfect mirror of the desktop program, but this is a disaster. It’s more like a “sample” and it feels like a slap in the face. This is not by any stretch a full version. I’ve only played with it a few minutes but I’ve been frustrated. I can’t add custom brushes. There appears to be no magnetic lasso or polygon lasso in selection tools. Transform function is severely limited. Super limited filters, no layer effects. The list goes on and on. Artstudio or MediBang or Affinity Photo are all better alternatives. Heck they could have just copied Artstudio and labeled it PS and the reception would have been better. Since I’m now working more on my iPad than my desktop its likely that I will cancel my adobe subscription. Huge disappointment. If you’re just starting out or don’t already use the desktop version, this isn’t worth the monthly subscription. There are better alternatives. I really hope Adobe gets their act together with this, but I’m not holding out much hope.
This is a great app and I think as the development continues it will only get better with time! The fact that I can open large PSD files is a win for me. The tools that I’d like to see on the iPad app would be all the filters and layer styles. These are a must for me, I found myself feeling very limited without these tools. If all the tools from the desktop app are transferred to the iPad over time, I believe this will be the best piece of artwork Adobe has ever made. When Photoshop Touch first came out I was so excited for the possibilities and now I’m more excited than ever because this is the closest it’s ever been to a full desktop experience for iPad. I want to thank the developers, please know that I’m happy with the efforts you all are putting into this project and please don’t pay any attention to those who are writing negative reviews. Keep up the good work, I’m impressed with everything so far and can’t wait for the next updates to come!
