Adobe offers simplified Photoshop on the web

Adobe has offered its Photoshop and Illustrator programs on the web, allowing users to edit documents in the cloud without having to download and run the application.

This is a really fascinating step forward for the two mentioned programs, but still small for now because they are not full versions of Photoshop and Illustrator, not even close. Users can leave notes and comments and perform basic editing using tools such as an eraser, spot healing brush, and lasso tool. Some significant changes will require you to run the application.

Not all features will be available from day one, but we really want to unlock basic editing options,” said Adobe CEO Scott Belsky. He said the web version of Photoshop offers a “mild level of editing” that supports “real PSD” files.

The goal of Photoshop and Illustrator online is to make it easier for people who work with the user to get involved in editing or customization. They used to be able to leave notes and comments on the document, but now, if the user gives them permission, they can “jump in” and make some basic changes themselves.

Adobe is also adding a panel to the desktop version of Photoshop designed to view comments left by people. It also added a new hub to his website so teams could organize and create collaborative boards.

In order to use Photoshop on the web, you need to be a Creative Cloud subscriber. The online Illustrator is in beta and is available by invitation.

Photoshop gets a handful of new features including an even more powerful object selection tool, which will show exactly what it can automatically highlight as the user jumps over objects in the scene. There are also new neural filters, a landscape mixer for mixing scenes with different environments or seasons, new filters for color transfer and harmonization that allow the appearance of one image or layer to be applied to another.

Adobe also improved last year's Depth Blur filter (essentially Photoshop's version of portrait mode) to create a "more naturally blurred background."
