(Pocket-lint) - Adobe Photoshop for iPad has now been officially announced by Adobe and you can download it from the App Store now.

The app is a free download and will work unabridged for 30 days. You will need an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription to continue afterwards, though.

A Creative Cloud photography plan, that includes access to Photoshop and Lightroom, costs £9.98 / $9.99 per month. It also covers use of those apps on Mac and Windows.

Apple iPad devices that support the full Photoshop experience are as follows:

Unlike former light versions of Photoshop that have been available for iOS, the new edition can be used to edit PSD files, with layer support, selection tools, gradients and more. Other features will be added in time, including masks, smart selections and other features that are also coming to the desktop version.
