Adobe Photoshop is considered the most versatile and popular image editing software par excellence. However, it is anything but a bargain. However, this could soon come to an end, because the Adobe Photoshop Web version is to be available for free in the future. Even if not with the full scope.
Adobe Photoshop Web version starts to test
The possibility of using Adobe Photoshop via the browser is not new. Since the fall of 2021, the manufacturer has also offered a Web-based variant of the image editing program. The range of functions of the tool has been continuously increased since then. Meanwhile, the web version offers, for example, the possibility to work with layers, brushes or other selection tools to use.
All you need is an Adobe account. Currently, however, you are still asked to pay. However, that should change soon, because now Adobe is testing a free version of the web application.
Adobe Photoshop Web will be free
As the magazine The Verge reports, they are already testing a free version of Adobe Photoshop Web. Albeit exclusively in Canada for now. There, users with an Adobe account can access the program for free.
Adobe itself describes the application as freemium. Means that some features will be made available only to paying customers. AI tools, fill tools and more are only available in combination with a subscription.
In combination with the already not quite complete scope, this is a good way to promote the desktop application. For beginners and those who use only the basic functions of Adobe Photoshop anyway, still a good and especially free option. And that without having to call a powerful computer his own, because the calculations are done entirely in the cloud.
If and when the free Adobe Photoshop Web version will also be offered in Europe is currently still unclear. However, the free tool is interesting and offers a scope that could be sufficient for most hobby users.
