Photoshop Fix for iPad Pro now supports Apple Pencil tilt shading & pressure detection

Adobe’s recently launched Photoshop Fix app has been updated this week to add further support for Apple Pencil on iPad Pro. The image editing app already worked with Apple’s new digital stylus on the larger tablet with initial support introduced in late October, and the latest update goes beyond basic support by recognizing both pressure changes and tilt shading when editing with Apple Pencil.

The enhanced support works well and really makes the precision editing with Apple Pencil on photos more natural when using the new iPad Pro. As you can see in the example with the sharpen adjustments highlighted in red, Pencil can now fill in large spaces quickly and apply more or less of an adjustment by adjusting force without tweaking hardness or softness settings.
