Adobe is finally taking the plunge and offering a web app version of its creative products and it starts with Photoshop and Illustrator.
During its main Adobe MAX 2021 livestream, the company rocked a ton New things to come in the Creative Suite over the next few months, including squeeze updates across the board, cloud services collaboration tools, neural filters, a landscape mixer, and more.
However, the ad that caught the eye the most was perhaps the one that involves the use of a less resource-intensive version of Photoshop and Illustrator in the future.
Starting today, Creative Cloud subscriptions will be eligible to try Photoshop via the web in beta, while Illustrator rolls out by invitation-only over the next several weeks. To get an invitation for the web version of Illustrator, CC subscribers can register here for the private beta.
As expected, the web versions of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator will be a little less powerful than their desktop counterparts. The incomplete version of web apps will allow users to navigate layers, comment and annotate, use simple editing tools, hide and more through Chrome and Edge browsers.
If the web isn’t your thing, as previously mentioned, Adobe has announced a multitude of other features and partnerships that will enhance your creative output, such as capturing edits in Photoshop, automatic downloads of Adobe Stock assets, cryptop account logins, content credentials for Behance work, expansion of l ‘Partner Ecosystem, New iPad Tools, New AR Experiences, New Animations in Adobe XD, Improved Audio and Video Search in Adobe Stock, All One-Click Mask, Color Transfer, Harmonization, Depth Blur Filter, Gradients improved and much more.
As one of the best-optimized Windows authoring suites, it’s great that content creators can use these new tools, features, and collaborations on their devices starting today.
