This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop CC 2018: Do you plan to include Device Preview?

I've updated to photoshop CC 2018.
Since the update, I cant seem to be able to connect photoshop to the preview app on my phone. I can't even find the "Preview" window in the windows panel

Hi,

The Device Preview functionality has been removed from the October 2017 release of Photoshop CC. Additionally, the Preview CC iOS app is no longer available for download or actively maintained as of October 2017. If you have a previously-downloaded version of Preview CC on your iOS device, you can continue to use it on an as-is basis with earlier versions of Photoshop.

HTH
Thanks

This was an unacceptable decision, guys. Why did you do it? I'm scratching my head over here.

My experience with Photoshop CC 2018 has actually been pretty awful overall. Solid downgrade to be frank. It's almost like Adobe WANTS to lose customers.

Thats very sad to hear, as this was a key feature in our work.As designers we want the ability to see our work live on the same screen that our users will.
Not only when designing UI element but also when editing photos, compositing or creating effects.
Going back to  to exporting images dropbox or using outside plugins for such a basic need seems obsolete.

I will definitely start looking for alternative programs outside of the adobe suit for me and my design team, as adobe clearly started to think of us as ATM's instead of users.

I dont understand this decision either... I design newsletters, and this feature helped me a lot along the work process.

Why do you still use Photoshop for Screendesign?! There's XD for that – with native Mobile Preview ;-)

Joely Tafanalo - LOL! Xd is not a solution for EVERYONE who needs to tweak their Photoshop layers so the advertisement or logo, or illustration or whatever they're designing will also look on a phone. Heck! I don't even design websites.
