Photoshop TouchAdobe has announced that it will remove Photoshop Touch for iPhone and iPad from the App Store and other platforms on May 28. The software company says it will be focusing its mobile efforts on other apps in the Creative Cloud suite, including Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Comp CC, Adobe Shape CC, Adobe Brush CC and Adobe Color CC. In total, the software maker has over 50 apps on the App Store.


Adobe also announced that it is working on a new retouching solution for mobile devices called Project Rigel that is expected to be available in late 2015. Adobe product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes shared a teaser video of the software through an iPad simulator today, demonstrating retouching features and filter effects such as warping, puckering and bloating, reconstructing, recoloring, brightness and contrast.

That's okay. I already switched to Pixelmator anyway.

This is why subscription software is not a good idea.

What if the software is part of your workflow? Sorry.

Yep, no more keeping an old machine around with old software just in case you need to work on old projects. Just tell your customer sorry, you have to pay to have everything created again from scratch.

I decided long ago never to invest any time or energy into anything from Google or Adobe. Every time I read a news story like this - and that's fairly often - I pat myself on the back for that decision.

Their attitude toward this app matches their attitude toward desktop Photoshop:

"We already HAVE your money! We should we give up some of that money actually fixing/improving things?"

I pay Adobe a ton every year, NOT for quality software (which they used to offer and I loved it). No, I pay almost ENTIRELY for the privilege of exchanging files with OTHER Photoshop users. We're all miserable, bugs linger, new features are gimmicks, the installer/updater/anti-piracy junk clogs your Mac and makes your Guest account throw up errors... and we're all paying just for file compatibility.

Way to build loyalty.

Also, I have to say, I thought PS on iPad was a really nice app. Either for edits in a pinch when my laptop is away, or as a companion to Procreate. (But Procreate has since gained more layers power, and stands alone better these days.)

Ah, well, they got my $10.

I'm going to be naiavly optimistic and hope that this is because a version that rivals Windows and OS X versions is coming to iPad (launching with the iPad Pro).

I'll see myself out.
