  • Your feedback and evaluation of Photoshop is important to us! We've implemented an in-app review for you to provide feature requests and immediate feedback to us on your experience.

Thank you for continuing to provide feedback and input - continue to do so by visiting our feedback forums on the web!

November 2019 (version 1.0.1) release

Thank you for support of our launch this week of Photoshop on the iPad! The team is excited about our shared journey ahead with all of you, as we look to shape the future of Photoshop on mobile. A key part of that journey is listening to all of your feedback, and responding to it with regular releases that include improvements, and in the near future, new features. And with that, we would like to introduce you to the changes in our first of many subsequent releases!
  • We know signing in can be one of the harder parts of using software, and so we have put some improvements in place that should help you better navigate your way into the world of Photoshop on the iPad!
  • Fixed issue where customers would see "We had a problem connecting to the Adobe servers. Please try again later."
  • Help is not very helpful when you can't actually tap on links or navigate backwards and forwards! We have again made help helpful by fixing our Photoshop User Guide, which you can find by tapping on the ? in the editor.
