The good news is that Adobe's new Photoshop on iPad would not be a watered-down version of the desktop application, but a full blown one that supports all features. This isn't a subset of Photoshop features with a touch interface; it's a full-featured Photoshop with touch interface and Creative Cloud sync support so you can edit documents on your iPad or desktop computer.
Adobe XD, the all-in-one UX/UI solution for designing websites and mobile apps, now features new capabilities leveraging recently-acquired Sayspring technology to empower designers to prototype experiences and apps for voice-powered devices like Amazon Echo.
"Cloud PSDs, when we ship Photoshop on the iPad, will also run and automatically show up on your desktop".
In its news release, Adobe said that Photoshop for the iPad has been redesigned for a touch experience, implying that users will be able to use gestures to manipulate their images.

"Recently, two Photoshop engineers proposed this insane idea to try and run Photoshop on the iPad using the real Photoshop code", Pam Clark wrote for the Adobe blog. The new Photoshop version will also be compatible with Apple Pencil, which means editing or creating new files is going to be a breeze. If this proves to be successful for the designers, it might also eliminate the need for laptops. But it's only recently with the beefier power of devices (tablets and phones) that we were able to turn this into a real experiment inside Adobe.
