When Adobe launched Photoshop for the iPad last year but users were less impressed with its limited features and functionalities – to say the tablet version of the software was a pared-back take on the desktop standard was something of an understatement. However, Adobe was quick to reassure digital artists that updates were on their way, and today several new features added and they have rolled out with some fresh set of features and updates.
The biggest news for Photoshop on iPad is the much-anticipated arrival of Curves — a core feature of the standard Photoshop experience that lets users make specific adjustments to the tone and colour of an image. The first version includes adjustments of tonal curves for all channels, multi-node selections, and useful built-in app recognition of the way you want to tap and drag a node with your finger or pencil or select it. It’s still not quite up to speed with the desktop version, though, and a numerical input function, along with eyedropper tools, will ship in a future release.
