Adobe Releases Fresco for Windows

Adobe released Fresco part of its Creative Cloud back in June as a dedicated drawing and painting app. While the app was first unveiled as iPad exclusive, the company has now announced that the app is coming to Windows.

While the news is certainly exciting, you should note that the app will be available for selected number of devices at the start. Although the company will release the app to more windows devices in the future, Adobe said that Fresco will be supported for Surface Pro 4, 5, and 6; Surface Book 1 and 2; Surface Studio 1 and 2; Surface Go; and Wacom MobileStudio Pro 13-inch and 16-inch.

In case you are wondering, the app features similar functionalities to the app for iPad. However, some of the features are missing at the moment and Adobe intends to bring the missing features in future. In the meantime, users of the aforementioned devices will have access to Fresco’s vector and raster tools, along with the brushes that were ported over from Photoshop.

In addition to this, Adobe also unveiled cloud documents which will allow users to sync their PSD files across iPad and Windows versions of Fresco as well as both versions of Photoshop and Adobe Aero. Given that the users are asking for a dedicated drawing app for a long time, the latest addition of Fresco will help Adobe to meet these needs going forward.

At the moment, it’s unclear when Fresco will start supporting more Windows devices. However, as Windows users have access to Photoshop and Illustrator, the lack of Fresco shouldn’t be a major problem. In case you are interested in trying out the latest app and have access to a supported device, you can head to Windows Store to install the app on your device.
