Adobe’s Photoshop on the Web Now Accessible on Google Chromebook Plus Devices


The web-based version of Adobe’s photo editing software, Photoshop, is now accessible to users of Chromebook Plus, enabling creators to utilize a wide range of editing tools directly through the internet

Adobe’s recently unveiled web-based version of Photoshop is now accessible on Google Chromebook Plus devices. This development enables creators to utilize select Photoshop tools directly on the new Google Chromebook Plus devices, eliminating the need for the Adobe Photoshop desktop application. Additionally, Adobe is introducing its creative application, Adobe Express, to all Chromebooks, including Chromebook Plus devices. These tools will harness the power of Adobe Firefly, the company’s cutting-edge AI mode that seamlessly integrates generative AI with its creative suite.

For those unfamiliar with it, Photoshop on the web is the online iteration of Adobe’s renowned photo editing platform, offering popular features such as core editing tools, quick actions, presets, and more while simplifying the overall editing process for creators.

The incorporation of Adobe Firefly brings further enhancements to Photoshop on the web, including Generative Expand and Generative Fill features. These capabilities empower users to intelligently modify images with precision, allowing for content augmentation, extension, or removal while preserving perspective, lighting, and style. Moreover, these features are compatible with text prompts in over 100 languages.

The web version of Photoshop also introduces the Contextual Task Bar, an on-screen menu that intuitively suggests the most relevant next steps, thereby streamlining the editing process and reducing the time and effort required to complete tasks.

As for Adobe Express, it serves as a companion platform for Photoshop, enabling users to create more efficiently with Photoshop design assets right within Adobe Express. Chromebook Plus users can seamlessly transition from editing in Photoshop to Adobe Express, choose from a multitude of professionally designed Express templates, generate custom images and text effects with Firefly, and simplify one-click tasks with quick actions, such as background removal, image and video resizing, GIF conversion, and more.

This announcement aligns with the Adobe-Google partnership, where both companies have collaborated to make Adobe Express available on some of Google’s most popular devices and platforms, including Chromebook devices for K-12 students and teachers across the US. Earlier this year, Adobe and Google also revealed plans to integrate Firefly into Adobe’s family of creative generative AI models for Google’s conversational AI service, Bard.

These new tools are now accessible to all Chromebook Plus users, and starting from October 8, Chromebook Plus users will also enjoy a three-month free trial of Adobe Photoshop on the web and the Adobe Express Premium plan, powered by Adobe Firefly.
