Adobe Photoshop for Chromebooks coming soon
Adobe Photoshop is a large and resource-intensive piece of code, and that is probably the main reason for not being available on Chrome OS until now. Fortunately, the suite that includes Adobe Photoshop is headed for Chromebooks in the US. According to the official blog post announcing this event, Creative Cloud "will be available first to U.S.-based Adobe education customers with a paid Creative Cloud membership—so the Photoshop you know and love is now on Chrome OS."
The Adobe Photoshop version for Chrome OS "is designed to run straight from the cloud" and is fully integrated with Google Drive. Considering its design approach, users of this software can easily save their work directly to the cloud. Adobe Photoshop for Chrome OS also offers excellent flexibility for institutions with large networks, such as universities. "For IT administrators, it’s easy to manage, with no long client installation and one-click deployment to your team’s Chromebooks," reads today's official piece of news.
Chrome OS users who already own a paid Creative Cloud membership simply need to go to Adobe.com and apply for access. Unfortunately, other requirements need to be met, such as North American residence, at least 13 years of age, member of the Adobe Education Exchange and more.
