Adobe is making the web version of Photoshop available for free, beginning with a pilot programme in Canada, in an effort to make its photo-editing software more widely available. According to The Verge, Photoshop's free version will eventually become more widely available.
According to an Adobe spokesperson, the free, web-based version of Photoshop is available, and "all editing features are available." However, the service is said to be "freemium," implying that some features may require a paid subscription or upgrade in the future. The free version will include enough tools to "perform what Adobe considers to be Photoshop's core functions." This is a significant improvement over Adobe's previous web version of Photoshop, which only allowed users and collaborators to share and comment on documents through a browser.
