After two years in beta, Adobe Photoshop will now be available on the web service starting September 27. The easy online version is a desktop photo editing app with popular tools like Generative Fill and Generative Expand.
Powered by the Adobe Firefly generative AI model, these features will be available for commercial use and allow users to quickly add, remove, or enhance an image using text-based descriptions in more than 100 languages. will
Photoshop on the web has the same features and tools as the desktop version, except with a redesigned layout for a more ‘smooth’ user experience. It will also include a contextual taskbar, added to the desktop Photoshop app this year, that suggests the most relevant actions to take in your workflow. Adobe plans to add desktop features like the Patch Tool, Pen Tool, Smart Object support, Polygonal Lasso, and more “soon.”
Photoshop for the Web will enable users to collaborate on projects with others by inviting them, allowing users to view and comment on files without an active Photoshop description. Web-based Photoshop is included in its paid plans starting at $9.99/month. The service will not be available for free to users at launch.
The company has previously said it hopes to offer a free version of Photoshop, but Adobe’s senior vice president of digital media, Ashley Steele, told The Verge that Adobe has “no immediate plans to offer Freemium” and New users can check out instead.
