At Adobe’s MAX event, the company revealed that Photoshop for iPad would soon be able to instantly erase the backdrop from pictures as well as other distracting items.
You simply need to highlight the background, keep the subject secure from removal, and replace it with something completely different, similar to how you do on a Mac or Windows PC. Additionally, the new iPad option is a part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud membership and is accessible on the App Store.
Furthermore, in the upcoming weeks, Photoshop for iPad will also get more beneficial features including automatic color adjustments to help you find the correct balance for your projects and greater refinements for hair and clothing edges when you need to shift these subjects to a different background.
Additionally, all of these add to what you can already do on an iPad with Photoshop, increasing the prospect of using an iPad instead of a Mac or PC, but we’re not quite there yet.
Due to its lack of fundamental capabilities, Photoshop’s iPad release in 2019 didn’t receive the best reviews. Besides, Adobe had to use solely touch controls at the time because Touchpad capability wouldn’t appear on iPadOS until mid-2020. Therefore, this required a lot of rethinking from Adobe to add features that had been a part of Photoshop for a long time.
Moreover, in 2022, even though a Magic Keyboard with a built-in trackpad is available, Adobe improved its features to the point where you only need to tap twice to get the backdrop gone. And this is possible because Adobe found ways to make a number of its potent functions simpler.
Hence, there are many user bases and needs that will appreciate these new features. Besides, long-term users of Photoshop on macOS have yearned for more desktop-class tools to come to the iPad Pro for those last-minute fixes everyone occasionally needs.
So, thanks to the announcements made at MAX, the iPad version of Photoshop now almost completely satisfies the requirements for this. Additionally, since the release of Photoshop on the iPad, users have been asking for the pen tool. And now that background removal features are available, they may be the next great iPad feature.
