Adobe to Offer Photoshop Online
Adobe Systems have announced that they plan to take the image editing software Photoshop online soon. But it is still not known whether the version will be free for online users or not . According to reports , it is part of a move to introduce ad-supported services online to complement its existing product and services and broaden its reach into the consumer market.
The company intends to offer entirely hosted products as well as ‘hybrids’ through which Adobe will use the web to introduce features to its desktop products such as Adobe Photoshop lightroom . As it introduces more online multimedia features and products , the company may combine Photoshop and Premier Pro with Macromedia .
However it will take around six months for this to materialize . The likely competitor to challenge Adobe will be Google’s Picasa as it offers hosted media editing applications . Adobe is still weighing its options with regards to how it will deliver the services.
