Adobe Launches Photoshop on the Web: A Complete Image Editing Tool Now Easily Accessible

Photoshop on the Web service, a simplified online version of the renowned Adobe’s desktop photo editing application, was officially launched to the public on Wednesday, September 27th, after spending close to two years under beta testing. It has gone live with the exclusive features, the Generative Fill and Generative Expand tools, that were recently introduced to the desktop iteration.

The groundbreaking AI model by Adobe Firefly powers the aforementioned generative tools, making them accessible for commercial purposes. These tools give users the capability to conveniently expand, add to, or eliminate aspects from an image using text-based instructions in more than 100 languages. Notably, they are also programmed to maintain similarity with the origin image’s perspective and lighting conditions.

Photoshop on the web encapsulates much of the desktop version’s popular tools, dispensing a more streamlined user experience primarily designed for new users, altering the traditional layout. This includes the Contextual Task Bar, a feature that suggests the most suitable actions in your workflow, a functionality that was embedded into the desktop-based Photoshop application earlier this year.

Additionally, tools that possess related workflows, like those required for retouching images and selecting objects, are conveniently grouped and named together on the toolbar. This results in an organized and easy-to-navigate software for users. However, for advanced users who prefer the traditional appearance, Adobe offers an option to disable this view. Adobe also assures fans that other desktop features like the smart object support, pen tool, patch tool, and polygonal lasso, among others, will be incorporated soon.

In conclusion, Adobe’s highly anticipated web version of Photoshop is now a reality. The improved layout, straightforward UI, and dedicated features make it a compelling choice for both beginners and seasoned users. The addition of sophisticated AI-powered tools further enhances the editing experience. It is evident that the triumphant entry of Photoshop on the web will pave the way for a new chapter in web-based image editing.
