Wed 22 June 2022:
Software giant Adobe has begun testing a free-to-use version of Photoshop on the web in order to make the service available to everyone.
The Verge reports that the business is currently evaluating the free version in Canada, where customers may access Photoshop online via a cost-free Adobe account.
The service is referred to by the software giant as “freemium,” although eventually some functions will be gated off and only available to paying users. To carry out what Adobe deems to be Photoshop’s basic functions, there will be sufficient free tools available.
Adobe first released its web version of Photoshop in October, delivering a simplified version of the app that could be used to handle basic edits. Layers and core editing tools made the jump, but the service did not come anywhere close to including the app’s full breadth of features, the report said.
Instead, Adobe framed it primarily as a collaboration tool — a way for an artist to share an image with others and have them jump in, leave some annotations and make a couple of small tweaks, and hand it back over, it added.
