Photoshop Mobile: Please add Shapes and Shape Tool

What is this? For a year they have told us this would be equivalent to a desktop version of Photoshop. Not at all. Where is the shape tool??? I’m so sad :(

I suspect the choice was: roll out an in-progress version, or delay it another 3-4 years until every feature was crammed in.

Did you honestly think that Adobe could built an iPad app in one year, that has the same functionality as the desktop has accumulated in over 25 years?

I expected them to do a lot better. How do you not include the shape tool???

There are lots of tools in Photoshop, and what you use most is very personal. To me the shape tool would not have a high priority, because most of the work I do is compositing of photos. So for me Select & Mask would have a much higher priority, for example. Adobe simply can’t satisfy us all so quickly.

Adobe made $11billion in 2019.

I remember arguing with someone claiming to be an Adobe dev on a major gaming forum in 2018, about the viability of Adobe producing a full Photoshop app given they discontinued and refused to support the previous version. They were adamant this app would be the full Photoshop.

Photoshop for iPad has been out for one year and has received a small number of feature updates in that time. At this rate it'll be a decade before it has the functionality of Photoshop 6.0 let alone CC 2020. I fully expect at some point Adobe will suspend updating these apps and instead focus on a new version which will definitely(!) be the "full-fat Photoshop".

Meanwhile, the Procreate team made estimated $40-50million in 2019 and has more PS drawing features than Adobe's own app.

I understand, but what they've put out is not a stand alone app. One must still have a computer if they want to use photoshop. They should have been upfront about it being a companion app.

I don't care one iota about the shape tool. I see a post complaining about importing custom brushes and I don't care about that either. I have other needs, and I suspect that everyone will have their own priorities. You'll either have to be patient or buy something else.

Shape tools (and vector paths) and Scripts are important to me, too. I don't see them on the roadmap, either. https://theblog.adobe.com/photoshop-reimagined-for-ipad-the-journey/

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop Mobile Shapes iOS.

Why no shapes on iOS version?

Can you create preset SHAPES in any other Adobe mobile app is the next constructive question for all of us?

It’s February of 2021 and Photoshop for iPad still has no shape tool. 😂🤦🏽 This is unbelievable. Anyone making excuses for this is a troll and cares more about earning forum badges than getting what they paid for. I can’t mark up a basic screenshot image in my “pro” image editing app that I pay a hefty subscription for monthly. Let me delete this trash. Smh
