With Photoshop on the iPad, be inspired to create and feel closer to your creative work than ever before.
Open up full-size Photoshop files on your iPad and automatically store them in the cloud as Photoshop cloud documents, without the fear of losing your work. You get the same fidelity, power, and performance no matter what device you're working on, even when you're designing with thousands of layers.
While working with Photoshop on the iPad, tap Create new () from the home screen to easily create a new cloud document.
In the New document panel that opens, you can type a name for your document, set the canvas dimension, change orientation, select resolution, and choose the background content. Currently, Photoshop on the iPad supports RGB 8-bit color mode. Also, you can explore common preset canvas options based on the field of usage: Print, Screen, and Film and video, and find the recently used canvas formats listed under Recent. Tap Create to create a new document and place it in the canvas.
Any document you create in Photoshop on the iPad is a cloud document by default. You can also choose to export your cloud documents in other file formats if required.
Cloud documents give you the ability to work on the go. With Photoshop on the iPad, you can:
Use the Save now and Rename document options to save and rename your document directly from the Edit workspace, while working with Photoshop on your iPad.
To rename a document saved on your iPad, follow these quick steps:

As a default, your documents get saved and synced after every 5 minutes, even if you exit the app, set it in the background, or even if your device crashes.
