Today Adobe just announced on its blog the new, upcoming iPad drawing and painting app which will be called Adobe Fresco (formerly known as Project Gemini). The app is set to arrive sometime towards end of this year and will be available for purchase via the Apple App Store on iPad.

Fresco is a term that brings the meaning from the Italian Renaissance-style painting technique of applying water-based pigments to wet plaster. Adobe Fresco’s main selling point is its Live Brushes, which mimic the way paint would mix and blend in real life. Scott Belsky, Adobe’s chief product officer, writes that Adobe’s AI platform Adobe Sensei will heavily be integrated with the Live Brushes feature to recreate how oils and watercolors bloom and react with each other.

A visually fluid interface that allows for seamless editing and designing.


Adobe Fresco app also brings other advantages such as it allows artists to draw with vector and raster brushes, combining the features of the Adobe Illustrator Draw and Photoshop Sketch iPad apps and even support Photoshop files across Creative Cloud, as well as exporting to PDF for editing in Illustrator.

The app’s UI and toolbar layout will take a lesson from the upcoming Photoshop for iPad app which Adobe has hinted that it will also be arriving this year. Combining both Photoshop’s and Fresco capabilities will allow you to use Fresco to import all your Photoshop brushes directly into the app so you can draw and paint with the brushes you’re used to and most comfortable with.

If you want to try out Fresco before it’s officially out, you can apply to be in the prerelease testing here.
