In a blog announcing the upcoming release, Pam Clark, who is in charge of product management for all things Photoshop at Adobe, said "This is real Photoshop on the iPad, the same underlying code and algorithms you rely on every day, with a reimagined user experience to take advantage of the uniquenesses of the device". Features like auto-ducking for music over dialogue, motion graphics templates for professional-quality titles, and export presets for the most popular social media aspect ratios make Premiere Rush a one-stop shop for promotional video content.

There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details on the Photoshop CC availability for the iPad next year.

Adobe is also presenting a production version of its new augmented reality program, called Project Aero. It's available today on Windows, Mac, and iOS, and an Android version is coming to the Google Play Store in 2019. The paid version of the video editing app is available for $9.99 (roughly Rs. 700) per month for individuals, $19.99 (about Rs. 1,500) per month for teams, and $29.99 (around Rs. 2,200) per month for enterprise customers.

There's also a free Starter plan which gets you the Premiere Rush software along with three exports per month.

Photoshop on iPad will make use of the same multi-layered PSD files while offering the same set of tools familiar to long-time desktop users. You're also able to move across devices (mobile or desktop) with Premiere Rush CC.

Adobe revealed at its MAX event that a new Photoshop would be coming for iPads - and not just any old defrocked mobile version. It combines raster graphics, vector drawing, and the Photoshop engine into a single application designed for artwork and illustration.

It also allows access anywhere, enabling users to create compelling video projects - optimized for social distribution - on one device and publish from another with a consistent user experience across desktop and mobile.

A new app created to accelerate drawing and painting workflows across devices, Project Gemini, coming first to iPad in 2019, combines raster, vector and new dynamic brushes into a single app experience built for drawing. Adobe's announcement of Photoshop CC on iPad was part of a number of software developments rolled out. Scott Belsky, chief product officer of Adobe's Creative Cloud, told Bloomberg he was hoping to have the product out as soon as possible.
