Photoshop Online.. Online photo editing is now available directly from Adobe

In a move that many have been waiting for, Adobe has made Photoshop online available to make photo editing available directly from the Internet without the need to install the program, but you must be a Creative Cloud subscriber to use Photoshop on the web.

In addition to providing Photoshop online, Illustrator is also available on the web, allowing you to make changes to images and documents stored in the cloud without having to download them and open the application.

Using Photoshop and Illustrator is a great step for users of these two programs, but it's also a very small step at the moment: these aren't full-featured versions of Photoshop and Illustrator .

Edit photos online directly

With updates to Photoshop and Illustrator, you can manipulate layers, leave annotations and comments, and perform basic image adjustments with tools like the eraser, point brush, and freehand selection. But you still have to open the app to make any substantial changes.

They won't offer all the features on day one, Scott Belsky, Adobe's chief product officer, said, but they want to gradually allow basic tweaks, which are now best made in the browser and shared with anyone you work with. Belsky describes the online version of Photoshop as offering a limited level of editing and working with "real PSD" files.

The point of Photoshop and Illustrator for the web is to make it easier for the people you share files with for review—a client, editor, or friend—to work with you on edits. Previously, they could make annotations and comments on the document. But now, if they're given permission, they'll also be able to make some basic changes pretty quickly.

How do you use Photoshop online?

Adobe is also adding a panel to Photoshop for desktop to review comments people have left. It adds a new hub on its website to allow teams to organize assets and create collaborative mood boards.

You must be a Creative Cloud subscriber to use Photoshop for the web, which will be available as a trial version starting today. Illustrator for Web runs as an invite-only trial, accepting subscriptions starting today as well.

There are a few other new features coming to Photoshop as well. The Object Selector is getting more and more powerful in the app, automatically showing exactly what you can highlight as you hover over the objects in the image.

There are also new basic filters: Landscape Mixer lets you remix your scene with a different setting or season; And new color transition and color coordination filters let you put the look of one image or layer over another.

Adobe also says that it improved on last year's Depth Blur filter (the basic version of Photoshop for picture modes) to create a "more natural background blur".
