How to Use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator On Web

The Adobe Max 2021 virtual conference marked a milestone for Adobe by bringing Photoshop and Illustrator to the web; two of the most popular tools graphic designers cannot imagine their day without. Users can now directly view, edit, and export files through their web browser without installing the native apps on their system. Sharing files is now as easy as copying the web link; much like we do for Google apps such as Docs and Sheets. Who would have thought that it was even possible to make a web version of such heavy apps? But Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator have proved us wrong. They have also launched the Creative Cloud Web which consists of Creative Cloud Spaces and Creative Cloud Canvas for ease of project collaborations via the web. Besides saving storage space on your hard drive, let us see what Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator web versions have to offer.  We will discuss How to Use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator On Web. So, without any further ado, let’s get started.

Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator On Web Features

While the web versions of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are a bit toned down than the native apps, they are by no means infant. Users can get a lot done with all the basic necessary tools such as lasso, quick selection, eraser, magic wand, paintbrushes, neural filters, cropping, and more. For many Photoshop and Illustrator users, this covers much of their work unless you are into highly intensive designing.

Attached below are some sneak peeks into the web versions of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator which have made editing, commenting, sharing and collaboration within teams much easier. Owing to remote working amid the pandemic, this move might be a game-changer for Adobe. 

The primary motive of launching Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator for the web was to cover the needs of the masses for daily tasks. At the same time, making things easier for all users who will access the file. For example, as a client, if you are reviewing a file made with the traditional Photoshop App, you can simply open it in the web browser to view it and note the edits even if you are not a Creative Cloud subscriber.

Adobe Creative Cloud web

Since this newly launched feature is available only in the beta version, you must be a Creative Cloud subscriber to enroll in it. If you are one, you can access it right this instant by heading over to Adobe’s official website and logging in with your credentials. Since the beta version is invite-only as of now, you will need to sign up for it. As of this moment, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator web versions are only limited to two browsers – Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
