I believe Adobe announced that PS for iPad would not be a completely full version right away. They are working to create as many PS features as they can with the limitations of the iPad. I have no idea when, if ever, it will become as full featured as the desktop version.
Moving post to Photoshop Mobile forum from the Photoshop forum.
Just be patient. Big things are coming. They had to rebuild Photoshop from the ground up and its taking them a little time to add feature. But they are coming.
Checking back in in 2022 to ask "when?" as well.
Yes. I agree Photoshop for iPad is utterly disappointing.I can create more with other apps that don't require a subscription and they have greater functionality. I understand Photoshop for iPad is a "work in progress" but Adobe has had Photoshop for years. It's an amazing program and people have come to expect a certain level functionality from it. Releasing it on iPad created a huge stir. If the full program isn't yet ready for release on iPad, maybe don't charge an exhorbitant subscription for an app that won't produce a quarter of what other available art programs do for a one-time purchase fee.
Did you ever cancel your subscription? I'd like to know how to do that.
I tapped About - Adobe has 75+ folks assigned to Photoshop iPad and since 1/1/20 we have Curves, Apple pencil improvements, some Font fixes and some Bug fixes. I am not trying to be critical but something is wrong here. Correspondingly, Serif who markets Affinity Photo is a tiny tiny company compared to Adobe but their feature set rollout velocity compared to Adobe is legion. Why is that?
Completely agree. And yet Affinity charges a one-time fee for their product.
I just completed the survey on the main page of this board and told them all about my disappointments with Photoshop for iPad. I suggest you do the same, @pjglad
I HATE this version of photoshop. I have no shapes an missing other tools, effects and settings I use frequently. The interface is confusing and different from the desktop. Dont know where 'snap to' is etc. With the M1 chip I thought I could get photoshop and premiere desktop version working on it, so I could work while traveling. But this is just [removed by moderator] - should have gone for mac air I guess... 😕
Agreed. Big beast, big market share. Would expect better. Effects for Pete's sake. Magic keyboard a big part of the equation and no quick keys for basics things like working with layers - seriously? It's preferences, not features; just implement the common sense preferences choices of desktop please!
The feel of the apple pen is pretty sweet though and sketching is nice - good work on that piece.
So much of the basics slows production down but maybe it takes getting used to - big question mark on that one.
I purchased PS for my new totally tricked out $1,300 iPad and I have to say that it hasn't been a good product, crashes frequently, locks up in the middle of working on an image. I have had the Adobe PS app for a year now and I will not renew.

Can you clarify "totally tricked out"? In Settings > General:
Before I buy ipad or photoshop for ipad, I'm trying to find out if the iPad version has liquify tools like the desktop version?
FREEZE AND THAW mask like the desktop version.?
