Adobe today announced that Fresco (previously also known under its codename Project Gemini), it’s long-awaited next-generation drawing and painting app, is now available on the iPad. If you’re a Creative Cloud subscriber, you should be able to download it right now, but unlike some of Adobe’s other products, Fresco will also come in a free version that has some limitations, but should still give you access to the overall experience of using the app. You’ll also be able to purchase Fresco as a standalone app.

As Adobe’s Kyle Webster notes, one of the areas the team really focused on was the variety of brushes that are available in the app, including all of your favorite Photoshop brushes. Given that Webster sold his company KylesBrushes to Adobe in 2017, that doesn’t come as a surprise. Similarly, the fact that Fresco makes good use of the Apple Pencil is very much expected.
