Adobe is planning to make Photoshop’s web version free to everyone in the near future. Anyone with an Adobe account may soon be able to download the web version of Photoshop for free. According to a recent source, Adobe Photoshop’s web client in Canada is currently experimenting with a “freemium” strategy. Take a look at the details down below!
Adobe Photoshop may become free to use in the near future.
Adobe is testing a free version of Photoshop on the web, which will allow users to acquire the most popular picture editing application with a free Adobe account, according to The Verge. Despite the fact that some parts of the software will not be available for free, Adobe claims that customers will have access to enough free tools to complete the main operations of the software.
It’s worth noting that, according to the report, the free version of Photoshop is presently only available to users in Canada. However, Adobe is anticipated to expand the Photoshop freemium model to more regions in the future.
Adobe Photoshop for the web is a relatively new technology that was published late last year by the firm. Even if the Photoshop web client lacked certain tools of the core application, Adobe has gradually introduced additional functions to it over time. Curves, refine edges, ‘doge and burn tools,’ and the ability to convert Smart Objects are all now supported.
One of the most appealing features of the web edition of Photoshop is the ability for several users to collaborate on a single image. As a result, Adobe anticipates that by making it free, more users will be able to legally test out the capabilities and advanced image editing tools of Photoshop before committing to the subscription model. Users with a subscription will also have access to more editing and effect options than those with a free account.
“We want to make [Photoshop] more accessible so that more people can test it out and get a feel for it.” I’d like to see Photoshop adapt to where people are right now. “You don’t need a high-end machine to use Photoshop,” said Maria Yap, Adobe’s vice president of digital imaging.
Adobe has yet to announce a precise date for when Photoshop will be available for free. So keep tuned for more information and let us know what you think about Photoshop going free-to-use in the comments section below.
