Adobe has started rolling out a free version of photoshop online and plans to make the service more widely available.
The company is currently testing a free version of the popular photo editing software in Canada, where users can access Photoshop by signing up for a free Adobe account.
Adobe says the free version will include its basic “core features,” like the ability to refine edges, curves, and convert Smart Objects. The advanced features are exclusive to paying subscribers who wish to receive them more from the software.
“We want to do it [Photoshop] more accessible and easier for more people to try and experience,” Maria Yap, VP of Adobe digital image editing said.
The “freemium” version will only run on Chrome and Edge browsers. Its compatibility means Chrome users no longer have to rely on Photoshop Express to edit photos.
Users who want access to all features of Photoshop must sign up through Adobe. The company offers a tiered plan that starts at $9.99 per month with 20GB of storage.
