Adobe Photoshop has only ever been available as an application on either your desktop or iPad. 

However, that’s about to change as at the Max Conference on Tuesday Adobe announced all their new plans including their plan for a web browser version of both Photoshop and Illustrator. 

So what is Web Browser Photoshop?

Web Browser Photoshop will be a slimmed-down version of the original software.

Its main purpose will be to allow people to share PSD documents with other collaborators in order to gain feedback and give feedback to others. 

It will have a comment and review section where people can share their thoughts and feelings on a person’s piece of work in order to help them improve or celebrate how good their creation is.

As well as this it will have basic editing tools for minor edits and these tools can be used without opening the desktop app.
