Adobe has today taken the wraps off two new updates with Fresco and Photoshop for iPad both receiving new versions and new features.
Both updates come with their own blog post which details all of the changes that we can now take advantage of.
Starting with Fresco (opens in new tab), Adobe continues the constant improvement that began when the app first arrived back in September of last year.
Improvements include the arrival of Capture Shapes, allowing creators to truly set their imagination wild and build some awesome imagery.
Adobe has also added Mixer brushes to Fresco with no fewer than twelve of them added by default. Users can also now use Photoshop Mixer brushers for the first time.
There's a ton more gone into this update, too. The Adobe blog has all the details (opens in new tab).
Moving on to Photoshop for iPad, Adobe has gone all-in on adding features that users have been asking for. The first of those is improved Apple Pencil support with pressure sensitivity now included for the first time. I'm no artist, but that sounds like a game-changer to me!
This update also adds Curves to the mix, making it easier than ever to adjust the color and tone of an image while doing it all in a non-destructive way. Again, Adobe has more details in a fresh new blog post (opens in new tab).
You can download both Adobe Fresco (opens in new tab) and Photoshop for iPad (opens in new tab) from the App Store now.
