Although Chrome OS has a bunch of good stuff, they have certain restrictions for accessing well-known software. For instance, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are on the Android app and are recently available for Linux Program. Meanwhile, Chromebook users had a restriction in using available software on the web. That indicates Chromebook users didn’t have access to a program like Photoshop and Illustrator. However, Adobe has announced the Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator released to the Chromebook & Web at its 2021 MAX conference. So, now it would be a blissful moment for Chromebook users to know that Adobe is dropping a web edition for photoshop and Illustrators that finally benefits chrome users. Because the Beta version of Photoshop and Illustrator will now be accessible via Chrome and Web Browse.

At first, it is essential to mark these web services are not attempting to displace traditional photoshop and illustrator at least for now. You would find Photoshop and Illustrator on the web are lighter versions with fewer features that can make quick edits through a few tools. In general deeper changes are made to photoshop. Meanwhile, web Illustrator is fruitful in operating graphics on the go. Furthermore, a pair of illustrator and photoshop will allow you to leave comments as a contributor if an artist shares their work.

Adobe only begins to examine workflows on Photoshop at this beta stage. However, you will see certain limited editing functionalities such as minimal layers, masking, cutting, and selection tools at initial. Adobe starts things with the most frequently used Photoshop features, like image replacement workflows. Furthermore, you can share the Photoshop document and invite others to edit the files. (If they have a Creative Cloud subscription). Similarly, you can send view-only links to make comments, shortcuts, and annotations.

How can you get access to the Adobe Beta Version?

Adobe has already announced Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator released to the Chromebook & Web. You can use Photoshop for the web on a public beta by:

  • Go to Creative Cloud web > Files> Your files.
  • After that, you can access Photoshop documents by clicking “Open in Photoshop on the web beta” while seeing a PSD file on your browser.

In addition, Illustrator requires you to join up though, a private beta. If this doesn’t facilitate you, there are still a couple of Chrome-friendly alternatives to choose from.


Having these limitations is still a great leap forward. Adobe’s Chief Product Officer, Scott Belsky, indicates that more features are a way to launch, with a footnote that “we won’t bring all features on day one” in a podcast with The edge’s Decoder. “It’s not sure whether it comes as fully feature regular Photoshop. Well, it might end up pretty close – after all, as it requires a Creative Cloud subscription. So, it’s not like it is free-to-use software but it’s just like other Adobe software that allows you to make quick update to a PSD or AI file, but Adobe probably doesn’t expect users to sit down and design some heavier work.”
