It used to be that if you wanted to use software, you would have to download it onto your computer. However, the problem is that this means that if you’re using a different computer, you’ll need to download that too, which can be troublesome if that computer isn’t yours. This is why web applications exist, for that convenience.

The good news is that if you need to make some image edits, Adobe has announced that they will be bringing a version of Photoshop to the web. It won’t be as powerful or feature rich compared to the desktop version of Photoshop, but it should be good enough for users to make some quick edits that go beyond just cropping and resizing of images.

According to Adobe, users who are interested can try a beta of it. “In it, you can try out the commenting workflow and test some early Photoshop editing features we are piloting on the web. You and your collaborators can now open and view Photoshop cloud documents in the browser, provide feedback, and make basic edits all in one place without having to download or launch the app.”

Right now it seems that Photoshop for the web will only be supported in browsers such as Chrome and Edge. It’s a pretty interesting approach and we have to wonder if we’ll start seeing more traditional desktop applications find their way onto the web as well.
