The Adobe Photoshop version includes all the tools that are currently paid for!
According to The Verge, Adobe plans to release a stripped-down, web-only version of its popular photo-editing tool Photoshop. This new freemium version is currently being tested with users in Canada, but it will eventually be made available to a wider audience.
Adobe account can access Photoshop’s free
For the time being, anyone in Canada who creates an Adobe account can access Photoshop’s free, browser-only version. Engadget has contacted Adobe to inquire when the tool will be available to users worldwide, and we will provide an update once we receive a response.
Photoshop has long been the industry standard for image editing, but its monthly license fee is likely to scare off most users. Meanwhile, free or freemium photo-editing apps such as Pixlr, Canva, and Photopea have embraced casual users.
while becoming more sophisticated in their offerings.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because Adobe released a web-only version of Photoshop and Illustrator for subscribers last fall, though their functionality was limited to basic editing and sharing comments among project collaborators.
This new, free web version of Photoshop significantly expands the available tools and allows users to begin new projects while also accessing more advanced colour correction and editing tools.
First Release: Adobe
Adobe first released a web version of Photoshop in October, providing a simplified version of the app that can handle basic editing. Layers and core editing tools did make a difference, but the service fell short of the app’s full feature set. Instead, Adobe designed it primarily as a collaboration tool—a way for an artist to share an image with others, have them jump in, drop annotations, make some minor changes, and then hand it back.
Adobe rolled out a few updates to the service over the coming months, and that collaboration began to expand beyond use cases as well. Previously, a document could only be shared on the web from the desktop app, but now any Photoshop customer can log in and start a new document directly from the web.
