I have installed the first version version of Photoshop on my iPad Pro.
The first time i try to open a raw file, i get an error message saying that this type of file is not supported.
Up to now i use Affinity Photo and i have no problem with raw files.
I have RAW images which I try to upload to Photoshop to edit, but the Photshop app says 'Unsupported file format'. Is this how it's gonna be or Photoshop on iPad will begin to support RAW files in future? Is there a workaround to this? What's the best I can about it?
This has been questioned at length on various forums. Photoshop for Mobile does not support raw files. Its format is a special .PSD file type. You may do one of the following: open the file(s) in Photoshop 2020 on your computer and Save as... to the Document cloud (not the same as Creative Cloud). Now your photos are available in Photoshop for Mobile so long as you have an Internet connection. OR: import to Apple's Photos App or the Files App and import into Photoshop for Mobile from there with the Import and Open button ar lower left (see below). There may be other ways, but I'm new at this, too, and this is what I know to date.
Are you talking about the Photoshop mobile app?
I'm not sure how similar it is to the new iPad application of Photoshop.
Don't they say it's Photoshop on iPad and not Photoshop for iPad? 😕
PS: Importing to Photoshop from Photos app or files on iPad doesn't help because again, they're RAW files.
Thanks for answering. 🙂
Adobe has problems with naming its apps. I thought that I would be clear by using the name of the sub-forum: Photoshop for Mobile. I refer to the Photoshop app for iPad that was released on 4 November, 2019.
As for importing raws, it just got weird for me. Please see my new post "Raw Import: It Just Got Weird."
Raw file import is not currently supported on Photoshop on the iPad. Thank you for letting us know what features are most important to you. You can add your vote for this feature here: RAW support for Photoshop on the iPad
The two things that are most important to most pro photographers are RAW and having the ability to control export size. Having the ability to control the size like 800x600 or any other size is very important when shooting for different clients. PLEASE ADD THOSE your customers will be trembly happy
Adobe, if you're listening, you've gotta fix this. I can't read any RAW files directly in Photoshop for iPad AND the file structure/workflow is a hot mess.
I naively assumed I could ditch my laptop in the field and replace it with my iPad + Photoshop Mobile. I assumed that I could roughly simulate a typical workflow albeit under iOS's already tricky file structure. But currently, I cannot do any of that. I'm thoroughly confused and disappointed.
Do you want me to edit my RAWs in Lightroom Mobile first then open them in Photoshop? I can't really tell because there's no clear path. So it looks like I'm still lugging my laptop around for now.
To be fair, once I've imported my RAW file as a PSD file (via my Mac), Photoshop for iPad works as expected and the output appears completely faithful to that of my Mac.
Anyway, the fundamental act of being able to open a RAW file directly in photoshop should have shipped in this first version.
In version 1.0, supported file formats for placing photos in Photoshop are - PSD, PSB, TIFF, JPG, and PNG. Raw file import is not currently supported.

Hi, I have subscribed to iPad photoshop. I wonder when it would be possible to use Photoshop for canon raw photos.
I also am waiting on .cr3 compatibility in Photoshop CC iPad
This thread is in the Lightroom forum, and is about Lightroom Mobile.
I've gone ahead and branched this part of the conversation, and moved it to the Photoshop for Mobile forum.

I was so excited to start editing images on my iPad. Is it truly possible that raw images are not supported or am I doing something wrong? Just downloaded the app today. Do I have to edit on LR then pop into PS? If so how? Or export a jpeg from LR (still can't choose the file size though) and open in PS?
Same thing not working for me. PLUS it won't even work to edit in lightroom and the add to photoshop. LR says the file is corrupt or unsupported and PS says the file-format module cannot parse the file. SO frustrating. I'm so behind on editing!
