Adobe will release Photoshop CC for the iPad next year. The company announced the new app during its Creative Cloud technology conference, saying it, “reinforces the company’s commitment to delivering high-performance apps that work seamlessly across surfaces.”

Photoshop CC for the iPad has been redesigned to take full advantage of the touch surface and the Apple Pencil stylus. Crucially, the app supports native PSD files, allowing iPad users to open and edit existing Photoshop projects.

In addition to Photoshop CC, Adobe will also release an app currently known as Project Gemini. The drawing app lets designers sync and use their own Photoshop brushes, and works in conjunction with Photoshop CC.

These two join a cross-device tool for augmented reality creators called Project Aero, and Premiere Rush, a tool for video creators. There are no firm release dates for any apps yet, but Adobe promises Photoshop CC and Project Aero will be available in 2019.
