I purchased a 12.9" iPad hoping to be able to work on my photos on it and then found out that there isn't a complete Photoshop version for the iPad. If I subscribe to the cloud, can I use the iPad that way/

Yes, perhaps, maybe, but not with Photoshop on the iPad. Depends on what you want to get out of your workflow.

There is a variety of tools available for the iPad Pro in a photography workflow. Photoshop is not one of those options but other tools include: Lightroom Mobile (fast and syncs edits back to your desktop via the Adobe Cloud), Affinity Pro, Apple Pencil, Photoshop Mix and Fix plus a host of other 3rd party apps.

See if this brief overview by Tony Northrup gives you some ideas

For iPad OS, you can use Adobe Illustrator Draw, Adobe Capture or Adobe Photoshop Sketch.

Adobe mobile, iPhone, iPad, Android apps | Adobe Creative Cloud

To use the full scale version of Photoshop however, you need a desktop.

Photoshop Sketch works on iPad.  Download it from the Apple App Store.

Thanks for answering Nancy,

but really, even if Adobe Photoshop sketch is a nice little application (within the cloud of nice little apps developed by adobe for ipad), it is far from matching what a professional photoshop user expects... Even for drawing and painting it is far below Procreate and the recent evolution of Mangastudio (can't recall the name) or other independant solutions like paintstorm, basically a copy of Photoshop, what Adobe could have offer us at least...  Adobe Sketch compared to these ? Well it is just a nice little sketch app...

And it's really a shame that Adobe didn't take that turn seriously by providing a professional application considering the ipad pro is really a pro machine for graphists and digital painters, and Photoshop is definitely The profesionnal application for graphists and digital painters as well as photographers...

I use photoshop everyday for work. I wish I could use it on ipad pro but I sadly had to move to Procreate  and Paintstorm to keep working professionnaly when using my ipad pro.

I wish Adobe would grant us with a real Photoshop version with most of its functionalities but redesigned for the ergonomie of the ipad pro, instead of developping a dozen of small apps which are more widgets than pro apps... Not meaning the developpers of these small apps did a bad job, but there is real lack in Adobe's policies towards ipad pro's users who are also Adobe products pro users at the same time ...

Well some day in the future may be ( ipad pro 12.9 inch has been released in 2015, thats only three years now...)

Seems the apple pencil would be the ideal tool for Photoshop.  Selecting pixels is the most time consuming task. Could be so much easier with a pencil than a mouse.

Yes I agree. The obvious and significant demand from iPad users is not being understood or met by Adobe. Be careful guys, or you will lose your market position.

Yea, it sucks Adobe doesn’t see the potential. They have been letting smaller companies like Affinity/Serif  and Procreate, along with all the different Vector programs eat their food.

Also, for sketching, look at Autodesk’s Sketchpad, it’s free and makes “photoshop Sketch” look like an amateur’s first program.

All these little fragmented programs that all handle a different task are ridiculous. It would be ok for non paying memebers just to get them hooked on creative cloud, but for those of us that pay, we should have fully functioning programs and not have to go to third parties. Luckily most third party programs can export to PSD files.

Also, I haven’t tried it yet, but there are programs like AstroPad Studio that mirror you Mac on your iPad so you can control it over WiFi. But that’s another expense and still not perfect like iPad optimized versions of photoshop and illustrator. There are other options for Windows also.

But, Adobe has done a great job with Lightroom on the iPad, so hopefully that’s a sign of things to come.
