Oh gosh! We recently wrote about how anyone can now paint photo-realistic landscapes using an AI platform, and here's another piece of news, which may be just as, or even more, interesting for those interested in the subject. According to a recent article in The Verge, Adobe is making perhaps the most popular of all graphics and image editing programs, Photoshop, to introduce the application to more users.
The company is already testing a free version in Canada, which users can access through a free Adobe account that they can sign up for. The freemium version will be available to anyone, in principle, with the basic features, but others will only be available in a paid version available for a paid fee.
As Maria Yap, Adobe’s VP of digital imaging says:
“We want to make [Photoshop] more accessible and easier for more people to try it out and experience the product. (...) I want to see Photoshop meet users where they’re at now. You don’t need a high-end machine to come into Photoshop.”
The exact launch date is not yet known, but in the meantime - after registering an Adobe account - it's worth trying Photoshop and Illustrator announced last October, which work on a similar principle while retaining essential functionality in the web version, and could be of good use to anyone who wants professional image editing services for free on an anytime online platform.
This is particularly useful now, in the summer, when even those who would otherwise work from a home office and need an unexpected situation, such as an image exchange, without the usual computer with all the graphics and image editing software available. The author of this article was in a similar situation just a few days ago - I would have been lucky to have heard about this news sooner!
