Google announces partnership with Adobe to bring Photoshop to ChromeOS

Chromebooks are an extremely powerful tool under a lot of circumstances, but for graphics work, they can be slightly underpowered. Web-based services such as Pixlr do a decent job for basics, but for professional image manipulation it’s Adobe Photoshop that people want and so far it’s been out of reach for ChromeOS users. But today, Google has announced a partnership with Adobe which will bring Photoshop to ChromeOS devices via the Creative Cloud suite.

Beginning with education partners in the US, Adobe will start streaming their Creative Cloud products to Chromeboooks, beginning with Photoshop, but moving further afield in the future. Called Project Photoshop, the streaming will include :

  • Creative tools: Streaming access to Photoshop with other products coming soon
  • Access from any Windows device with a Chrome browser or from a Chromebook
  • Learning tools: Access to Adobe Education Exchange learning content and an in-app Learning panel called ‘Learn Now’
  • Project Photoshop Streaming Feedback and Forum support

Because it’s being streamed, there won’t be any app to update (who hates Adobe updates?), Photoshop – and other apps in the future – will just be streamed through to your device.

It shows a lot of promise (except for the US-only and Education customers clause) but it will roll out for general use in the future. Head over to the Adobe website to check out pricing for Creative Cloud subscriptions.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Blimey, with Adobe’s raging pricing the Photoshop subscription alone will cost more than the laptop!
