Adobe has released Photoshop 25.2 and Photoshop on the iPad 5.3, the latest versions of image-editing software and the tablet edition included free with Photoshop subscriptions.

Photoshop 25.2: workflow improvements in the Layers panel
Photoshop 25.2 iself is a small update, improving workflow in the Layers panel with customizable options in its flyout panel, and new right-click options.

The changes are intended to reduce time spent searching for commands in the panel.

Photoshop on the iPad 5.3: new AI-powered Generative Fill feature
Photoshop on the iPad 5.3 adds Generative Fill, the generative AI-based background-editing feature introduced in the desktop edition of the software earlier this year.

It lets users replace part of an image by typing in a text description of the content they would like to create in its place, with the new imagery generated non-destructively in a new layer.

Pricing and system requirements
Photoshop 25.2 is available for Windows 10+ and macOS 11.0+. In the online documentation, it is also referred to as the November 2023 release or Photoshop 2024.1.

The software is rental-only, with Photography subscription plans, which include access to Photoshop and Lightroom, starting at $119.88/year.

Single-app Photoshop subscriptions now cost $34.49/month or $263.88/year, Adobe having raised the prices of many Creative Cloud subscriptions earlier this month.
