There is a blooming good news about Adobe Photoshop users, the web software is going to launch its free version soon. The software’s license fee is an interruption for the users leading the users to utilize free or other alternatives.
The free web version of Photoshop is now undergoing its testing in Canada. Adobe, a part of a broader effort for its users, keeps no stone unturned for tool accessibility. Still we are not sure when the free version will be rolled out more globally, but we expect it to be soon.
Maria Yap, Adobe’s vice president said, day by day photoshop is getting “more accessible” fetching more people the chance to try out and experience the product.
Once Adobe’s free version goes live globally, all you need to access its account which costs nothing. Previous Photoshop’s editing features will now become accessible that were limited to the paid desktop version and cost at least $10 per month (About Rs 780 approx) including adjustment layers, mask creation, resizing tools, healing brush, etc that were already used in the free version.
Still Adobe will not let go of every feature, keeping some of them behind subscription. Company’s strategic policy is under-works behind this free version; wanting their users to get addicted to their free software later, planning to opt in for a paid subscription to enjoy more advanced features.
The reason behind launching the web version of Photoshop last year for PCs and some Chromebooks is because of a stripped-down version of the desktop software providing a limited set of features like share and comment on files via a web browser. Adobe was essentially meant to be collaborating than real editing; but the upcoming free version will be upgraded.
