Want to do some serious image editing on a Chromebook? Now you can… maybe.
Adobe and Google have announced that Photoshop can now run on Chromebooks.
There are a few catches though.
Adobe Photoshop will be available to folks using Chromebooks if:
- They’re located in the United States.
- They’re Adobe education customers.
- They’ve paid for a membership to Adobe Creative Cloud.
If you meet those requirements you can apply for access to the Photoshop Streaming beta project so you can use an internet-based version of Photoshop which offers all the same features as a native desktop version of Photoshop… plus a few bonus features. Since the software is cloud-based, it’s always up to date. You’ll never need to install a software update.
Second, it’s integrated with Google Drive. You can save your Photoshop files directly to cloud storage so you can access your images from any machine.
