Photoshop for iPad Gains Content-Aware Fill, Remove Background, and More

Adobe today announced new features for Photoshop for iPad, including Content-Aware Fill, Remove Background, and Select Subject Portrait, all features that continue to bring the iPad app more in line with the desktop version of Photoshop.

Content-Aware Fill is designed to allow users to take any selection and use AI to fill the contents based on the surrounding image, and it is a quick way to get rid of distracting elements in the background of a photo.

The Remove Background tool is designed to be a one-click option for removing the background from an image non-destructively, and Select Subject Portrait lets users select the people in an image and refine details like wisps of hair and edges of clothes. Other new Photoshop for ‌iPad‌ features include a font browser and auto-tone, color, and contrast.

Along with an update to Photoshop for ‌iPad‌, Adobe is also updating its Fresco drawing and painting app with a Liquify for distorting images, Magic Wand for selecting a colored area, and new Accessibility features.

Adobe Photoshop for iPad and Adobe Fresco can be downloaded from the App Store. Photoshop for ‌iPad‌ is available for $9.99 per month as part of Adobe's Photography plan, and Fresco is also priced at $9.99 per month.

... but what kills the whole experience is still the lack of a real file system in iPadOS.
Not sure what is missing from FILES. USB-C on my iPad and iPadOS 15 really seemed to fix any issues I had with the "file system". And having DropBox, OneDrive, shared/SMB, iCloud and local storage all in one place. I can zip, unzip, share and manage most of a file's properties. Having multiple FILES windows open, copy/paste, drag and drop between apps and computers, the update has been a dream.

I do not like subscriptions but the Adobe subscription gives the most value for the $ out of any that I am aware of except maybe Drafts.

Fantastic to see content aware fill. Photoshop on the iPad along with another upcoming app is letting me import RAWs from my Z9, process, fully edit, and then export or publish my photos with little to nothing lacking from their desktop counterparts. I could see myself wanting a bigger iPad in the future for photo work instead of a desktop, especially now that I can reliably process 5K images on the thing as well as I could on my Mac Studio.
