At Microsoft’s special event from New York which ended a few minutes ago, we didn’t get to see the Surface Mini, as it was previously rumored, but instead we got the Surface Pro 3, an improved version of the Surface Pro 2 which comes with a bigger sized and improved performance. Besides talking about its hardware specs, Microsoft’s Panos Panay and its partners have talked about special upcoming apps and features and one of them which we got to see demoed is Adobe’s Photoshop CC. The above screenshot depicts the app in action on the Surface Pro 3.

Adobe to release Windows 8 app version of Photoshop CC

The upcoming edition is said to be designed specifically for use with a touchscreen and stylus, so it either could be exclusive at its launch for the Surface Pro line of devices or it could be used by any Windows 8 touch user who attaches a pen to it. But we know that such a software would require quite a machine to be able to run it, so it could be exclusive to the Surface Pro 3, which could constitute another reason to buy the tablet-laptop hybrid, of course.

The Surface Pro 3 comes with a bigger size than your usual Windows 8 tablet, so this could be another reason why we’re seeing Photoshop CC on a Windows touch device only now. The icons and other elements of the user interface have been doubled in size so, which means you can use your finger and gestures like pinch-to-zoom much easier. At the moment we don’t know whether it will support mouse input, as well.

Michael Goff from Adobe said that “there’s more on the way”, and by that he’s probably referring to his company’s plans with regards to the Windows platform. And by that, he probably refers to more Adobe CC apps, which, by the way, appeared on the start screen of the Surface Pro 3 during the demo. We’ve managed to get a glance of the following – Adobe Bridge CC, Adobe Incopy CC, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom S4 and Adobe Illustator CC.
