Finally, Chromebook users now access Adobe Photoshop on Chrome OS. It’s a good news to all Chromebooks users. Google has teamed up with Adobe to offer a special cloud-based version of Photoshop to students and teachers. The project is dubbed as Photoshop Streaming and it is currently in beta.
According to a blog post,
“This streaming version of Photoshop is designed to run straight from the cloud to your Chromebook. It’s always up-to-date and fully integrated with Google Drive, so there’s no need to download and re-upload files—just save your art directly from Photoshop to the cloud.”
Initially, the app will only be available to users in the US and will require a paid Creative Cloud subscription. In future updates, Google is adding more power to Chromebook in order to make it main stream. Already, earlier this month Google added four Android apps – Vine, Duolingo, Evernote and Sight Words to Chromebooks.
Project Photoshop Streaming includes:
- Creative tools: Streaming access to Photoshop with other products coming soon
- Access from any Windows device with a Chrome browser or from a Chromebook
- Learning tools: Access to Adobe Education Exchange learning content and an in-app Learning panel called ‘Learn Now’
- Project Photoshop Streaming Feedback and Forum support
