After what has been months (in fact years) of waiting Adobe has finally announced that they will be launching Adobe’s Photoshop program on Chrome OS, allowing users of Chromebooks to finally edit photos in style, instead of using on of Google’s cloud based applications.
The version of Photoshop will however be a little different from the usual Photoshop program, and Google say that it will be a new streaming version of the program that will work with Google Chrome.
The app will also be fully integrated with Google Drive, allowing users to save new files, and changes to old ones to the cloud, meaning that users won’t have to download or re-upload a file every time they make a change to it.
Google said the following about the app in there announcement post:
“Chromebooks are fast, easy to use and secure. They bring the best of the cloud right to your desktop, whether that’s Google Drive, Google+ Photos or Gmail. Today, in partnership with Adobe, we’re welcoming Creative Cloud onto Chromebooks, initially with a streaming version of Photoshop. This will be available first to U.S.-based Adobe education customers with a paid Creative Cloud membership—so the Photoshop you know and love is now on Chrome OS. No muss, no fuss.”
You should probably note that this isn;t a full version of the app, and a few features that are included in the desktop app will be missing from the Chrome OS version due to hardware limitations.
