Adobe is updating Photoshop for iPad with two key features today

Adobe is updating Photoshop for iPad with new key features today. Photoshop for iPad gets curves and Apple Pencil improvements with more flexibility for the Pencil stylus and the addition of curves. Photoshop will now let you do adjustments with its pressure sensitivity when using the Pencil stylus. This feature should make it easier to control the width of each brushstroke when using Photoshop. The application increases the size of the stroke. This can be done when you press down harder, but Adobe says some people found the system to be too sensitive. So upon the update users will now be able to adjust how quickly it transitions between thin and thick brushstrokes.

Another big change for the iPad is the addition of curves. This will give users a fantastic way to adjust contrast and color channels. Curves is a standard feature in pro image and video editing apps, and the tool’s unavailability in Photoshop for iPad was one to take note of. At last now it is here, Adobe says you’ll be able to make tone adjustments for all channels and create multinode adjustments to dial in more specific changes. Numerical inputs for more specific adjustments and an eyedropper tool for making selections straight from the image will be available “soon in a future release.”

Photoshop for iPad was introduced in November 2019, however it had some criticism from users who thought and found the App not as powerful as they expected the giant image editing app to be. So Adobe responded by promising fast feature updates. It then added some features one at a time such as the handy Subject Select tool and improved Adobe Fonts integration.
