Photoshop web version will be free for everyone


While being tested in Canada

Adobe has begun testing a free version of Photoshop on the web and plans to open the service to everyone.

The company is currently testing a free version in Canada, where users can access Photoshop through a free Adobe account. In the future, however, Adobe intends to remove some features from the free version and provide them only to paid subscribers. Freely available, however, will be enough tools for basic image editing tasks.

Adobe first released the web version of Photoshop in October. Over the past months, the company has made several updates to the service. Unfortunately, Adobe hasn’t given a timeline for when the free version will be rolled out to a wider range of users.

Adobe also introduced today a new neural network-based filter that can automatically remove scratches from an old yellowed photo and restore some of its color.
