It seems they're separating out functions—Photoshop on the iPad does simple compositing (many layers, but still only simple functions to build them). Lightroom in the Cloud is apparently meant to be the stopgap for photo editing until they can build out those features. Fresco is for painting and drawing—until they can give us our brushes and other presets.

It's not the "full" Photoshop, but the "real" Photoshop. Here's hoping that having built the foundations for the "real" Photoshop, we see the bulk of the missing features arrive quickly over the course of this next year.

I feel you but I understand it is not that simple. Opening a camera RAW would require ACR engine.

The solution I have right now is to edit my RAW file in Lightroom which is basically like PS ACR exported to a stand alone software, then after editing in Lightroom go to Share icon > Open In > Copy to Photoshop

If Lightroom for iOS can do it then photoshop for iOS should also be able. Adobe just dropped the ball.

Same problem with my Olympus raw files. Hope they add support soon. Having to use other software to change the file type is time consuming.

Without RAW support Photoshop for the iPad is worthless to me. Have been looking forward to this for a year, very disappointing. Will this ever have RAW support? If so, when?

How is this possible? I can edit raw files in Lightroom on my iPad. I’m a professional. This is useless.

Agree. Photoshop without Raw support is plain silly.

Yes, I agree and, unfortunately, I have no confidence they will prioritize it on an upgrade roadmap. So I will migrate over to Affinity which disturbs my workflow no end.

I tried to import an .NEF file into Photoshop on my iPad, but was told it was an unsupported file format. How long before .NEF files become supported?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled PS on IPad Pro: Requested function: RAW-Converter.

Any plans when RAW-Converter will be available for PS IPad Pro App? For now I am using Affinity to convert my RAW-files and import the PSD to PS. Would be great if you could give an information if you put this function in the scope already. Thanks for feedback.

This is a major feature that’s been left out. I import my raw files directly from a camera via usb-c to my iPad for Lightroom Mobile editing all the time. Lightroom does not have any support issues. I do not see a use for photoshop mobile at this moment and hope they address this soon.
