Creative Cloud is Optimized for Apple’s iPad Pro
Creative Cloud and the iPad Pro: two great technologies, and two outstanding tools for creating the best multimedia content whenever, wherever you are. The Creative Cloud harnesses every bit of horsepower packed into Apple’s new iPad and puts that larger touch screen to best use. And with CreativeSync, you stay connected to your assets, so you can begin creating in one app and pick up your work in another, on another device. (CreativeSync now functions beautifully with our mobile and desktop products, so whether you’re in the office or on the road you’ll be able to create and edit with ease. Scroll below for more on CreativeSync.)
Below is a breakdown of how our Creative Cloud mobile app family has been optimized for Apple’s latest and largest iPad – with new usability capabilities and features that take full advantage of the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and iOS9. Before you read the details, check out what some of the great creative people said about the new tablet when they got their hands on it at Adobe MAX 2015.
Adobe Photoshop Fix
Photoshop Fix gives you the power to retouch, restore and improve images on your mobile device. Using Photoshop technology, you’ll be able to get the exact result you’re going for in an intuitive touch screen environment.
Now imagine doing all that on the iPad Pro’s big, beautiful touch screen. With 12.9” of real estate, the iPad is a more practical and enjoyable tool for photo editing than ever before. Photoshop Fix also provides full support for the new Apple Pencil, if you prefer to retouch photos with a stylus in hand.
iOS 9’s new Split View capability allows you to work simultaneously with two apps at once, so it’s now easier than ever to retouch photos on the fly while working in other apps.
Adobe Photoshop Mix
Photoshop Mix allows you to quickly transform your photos with ease. Cut out, combine and blend multiple images to creative impressive multilayered photos. The whole process is intuitive and easy on a mobile device.
Photoshop Mix, like Fix, is completely optimized for the iPad Pro’s new, larger screen. That means extra space for photos and editing, especially useful when working with multiple images at once. Compositing is also made easier by iOS 9’s new split view option, allowing you to multi-task between Photoshop and other apps in a more fluid way. Mix also supports the new Apple Pencil.
Adobe Photoshop Sketch
Speaking of Apple Pencil, you can put it to great use with Photoshop Sketch because Sketch mimics the same visual effects you get painting and drawing on paper, so having the pencil in hand as you draw on the iPad Pro means realistic pencil shading.
Photoshop Sketch also gives you highly realistic watercolor painting in a digital environment. Use the Apple Pencil to paint with a variety of watercolor brushes and take full advantage of technology that gives the same water and blending effects you get on paper. The end result is a soft and stunning visual effect.
The faster processing speeds and 12.9” screen give you the ideal drawing surface to create more expressive works of art in Sketch than ever before.
Adobe Comp CC
Comp CC on the iPad Pro means even more space to explore your layout ideas for print, web or mobile designs. The enlarged screen and Split View capability perfectly compliments Comp’s ability to edit across multiple apps and work with real assets like professional fonts, images and graphics.
Adobe CreativeSync is our secret sauce
The power behind seamless workflows is CreativeSync, and you’ll notice it more than ever when you work on the iPad Pro. As you create and edit images, you can easily access assets from other Adobe apps. Creative Cloud Libraries in Photoshop CC, Dreamweaver CC, Adobe Muse CC and Flash Professional CC are now all connected through CreativeSync. This means you can take your desktop content with you wherever you go and work with it on Apple’s largest touch screen yet.
It works the other way around too: begin editing a photo in Photoshop Fix on your iPad, then head back to the office and open that image in Photoshop CC on your desktop to take full advantage of its powerful editing tools. It gets even better if you work on multiple mobile devices: send an image from a Comp CC layout to Photoshop Fix or Photoshop Mix for retouching and see those edits appear in Comp, right before your eyes.
Go forth and conquer, creators. With Adobe Creative Cloud on the new iPad Pro, the sky’s the limit.
