Photoshop Mobile: Support for Samsung/Android tablet

The full photoshop and lightroom experience in a mobile format. Much like you've done for the iPad.

I noticed that the full Photoshop is coming to the iPad.  It seems that many of the Android Devices are more capable or equal to the iPad.  Is there a plan to bring full Photoshop to the android os?

My thought is that the cost that would have to be invested in doing a complete  rewrite to accommodate Android users would be a non starter for the company. You don't simply paint the barn doors to be able to do such a massive effort!  Cannot just port over to Android anymore than you could decide to start teaching US kids in public schools in Mandarin next semester. We are talking millions of bucks required for a minimal incremental return!

Just bought a brand new Samsung tab, (the most recently released one to be exact) and the Photoshop version for Android is not at all what was expected. Nor is lightroom. I'm very disappointed because I am not an Apple user I am not able to edit photos the way I want to on an Android device. I use overlays quite a bit and I'm unable to on any of these apps! Please make them compatible with Android with all the features the iPad has.

If image editing with Photoshop on your mobile device is important, you'll have to switch to iPad for the time being.  From the brief conversations that I've had with the Adobe teams, there are way too many variations in Android devices and the Android OS.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Just one question: Why not Photoshop on android?.

Hi, just one question: 
How about Photoshop on android?
Photoshop is available on IOS, but why not on android, I really don't understand...
Yes, maybe apple products are potentially better to do photo retouching for example with photoshop and pencil.
But why block, censor and do nothing more...
 You have to create a version of photoshop on android, lightroom exists on android, rush also so why not photoshop, there really needs explanations !

Thank you in advance for all your answers and we hope it will change !
Cordially
Arnaud Haenel

in French in case

Bonjour, juste une question : 
Que pensez-vous de Photoshop sur android ?
Photoshop est disponible sur IOS, mais pourquoi pas sur android, je ne comprends vraiment pas...
Oui, peut-être que les produits apple sont potentiellement meilleurs pour faire de la retouche photo par exemple avec photoshop et crayon.
Mais pourquoi bloquer, censurer et ne rien faire de plus...
 Il faut créer une version de photoshop sur android, lightroom existe sur android, dépêchez-vous aussi alors pourquoi pas photoshop, il y a vraiment besoin d'explications !

Merci d'avance pour toutes vos réponses et nous espérons que cela va changer !
Cordialement

Adobe Rush was code written for iPad, macOS, Windows and AndroidOS (not necessarily in that order).  It's not a port of Premeiere Pro.  Photoshop for iPad is a port of the Photoshop code base.  For that reason alone, we may never see an Android version.

Will Photoshop camera ever be available for Samsung Galaxy A71?

@ Kieran Andrews: Not going to happen because there are so many versions of Android on market and it would require a different version of Photoshop for each version.

It is already available on the play store, and the a71 is running the same version as Android as the latest S line, so doesn't make much sense as to why it isn't available

Do you mean Photoshop Mix?  That's a photo editing app that's in the family of mobile apps that share the Photoshop name, but it's not Photoshop for iPad which is... more or less... a start of the desktop version of Photoshop re-imagined for touch devices.

@Kieran: That says right on it that your device is not compatible.

@Dave I understand this, and the reason I came to this forum, as instructed to by the Adobe agent, was to try and find out the reasoning why it isn't compatible

@Warren, thank you for your help and useful information, I have just installed Photoshop for iPad to see how well it works for me

@Kieran: I would like to hear how Photoshop for iPad works for you on  your Samsung galaxy Android phone, as I have some customers who would be interested in knowing... Good luck! Hope you get it going

@Dave: I'm not sure if you are aware, however people are allowed to own both Samsung phones and iPad devices. I therefore have downloaded Photoshop on my Apple iPad device.

There are so many variations now (Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Camera, Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Express -- did I even get them all?) and so many devices that I kind of miss the days of Photoshop 2.5 where all you needed to worry about is if your Mac had enough scratch disk space.

It will be interesting if an App written to work on Apple's iOS actually works on Android, a different OS...

Please could you let me know when I stated that I would use Photoshop for iPad on my Samsung device? I didn't. Here's a picture of my iPad displaying Photoshop for iPad, taken on my Samsung device. I even turned the camera's watermark on, just for you

Sorry! The bulk of this discussion has been about your Samsung device; I missed the note you made about the iPad...

Be sure to get as many people as you can find to vote for this topic.  
Important note:  Photoshop for iPad does not have the full feature set of Photoshop for the desktop.

Also, cross-post this request in the Adobe Community Forum for Photoshop:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/bd-p/photoshop?page=1&sort=latest_replies&filter=al...

And... find as many existing requests as you can and reply with your support.

I totally support this idea. With Samsung dominating the Android tablet market, it makes it a sensible choice for the Photoshop app to be perfectly custom built for the Samsung tablet family. Also, would much appreciate the full support of the S-pen as I think it would be an amazing combo. Just wondering if this is the forum post which best represents the integration idea?

@ANAND KUMAR Samsung makes a great device, but Apple dominates the tablet market with the iPad.  If you look at just 2019, Apple did more than double that of Samsung. https://wallstreetexaminer.com/2020/10/apple-dominates-stagnant-tablet-market/

@warren_heaton Hi Warren, Thanks for your reply. Interesting figures. It makes sense for Adobe to be focussed solely on the Apple side of things judging by the market share they have. Although I have used both latest versions of the iPad pro and the Samsung Tab, the android offering looks competitive enough to win the benefit of the doubt. I guess Samsung needs to work hand in hand with Adobe on the development side of things rather than just offer complimentary prices on Adobe products.

Hi there, 

i am using products from Adobe on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+.

This tablet and nearly all Android tablets in the last 5 Years, have enough power to perform a Photoshop App on it.

Unfortunately there is only Photoshop Express for Android aviable

This version is not good enough for high end photography. 

Is there a plan to development of Photoshop mobile for Android tablets?

Currently on android there is a few different apps but non of them compare to the photoshop avalible on the ios devices. The iPad has a somewhat full version of Photoshop and this would be great for andoirds as well. Especially for the tablets and editing on the go. Is there any plans to bring this out. Thank you.

My Galaxy tab 7+ is more than capable of running photoshop. So there shouldn't be an issue making an app for Android.

No, your Galaxy cannot run Photoshop, only Photoshop Express which is NOT full feature Photohop.

Here's a quote: "The answer is both yes and no, depending on your tablet. A cutdown version of Photoshop, known as Photoshop Express, can be run on most tablets, and even some smartphones. To run a full-blown version of Photoshop, known as Photoshop CC, you would need a powerful tablet that runs Windows 10."
