According to today’s report from The Verge, Adobe plans to release a stripped-down version of their renowned photo editing application Photoshop only for the web.
A freemium version of the app is currently being tested by the company in Canada, but it will soon be made accessible to more people.
Now, anybody in Canada with an Adobe account may use the browser-based version of Photoshop for free.
Adobe has been contacted by Engadget, and we will provide an update as soon as we get a response.
Because of its monthly subscription charge, Photoshop has long been the industry standard for image manipulation.
As a result, applications like Pixlr, Canva, and Photopea — all of which provide both free and freemium versions — have become popular among non-professional photographers.
It has been reported by The Verge that Adobe is making some of its most basic picture editing tools accessible for free in order to reach a wider audience.
Since the business promises to provide more sophisticated capabilities on the web-only version that can only be accessed via a subscription, Adobe hopes that some freemium Photoshop users will become paying customers.
You may recognise this since Adobe recently debuted a web-based version of Photoshop and Illustrator for subscribers, which had limited capability but allowed for rudimentary editing and commenting on projects among team members.
It is now possible to start new projects and access more complex colour corrections and editing capabilities with this new free online edition of Photoshop.
