Photoshop on the Web is now available in beta with limited features

For the longest time, Photoshop has been the household name when it comes to image editing and digital painting software. While it now has a bit more competition, it's still the de facto standard in the creative industry, despite and in spite of unpopular changes Adobe made to how it distributes the software. Its cloud-centric business model, however, may have its benefits, and one of those makes Photoshop nearly universal, by some of the app's functionality available on web browsers.

Adobe expands Content Authenticity Initiative tools to fight misinformation

Photoshop now runs natively on Windows 10 on ARM with a big catch

Photoshop now runs natively on Windows 10 on ARM with a big catch

Whenever a new kind of computing device comes out that is targeted at professional work, one of the most common questions that come up is whether it can run Adobe Photoshop. That software, after all, has become the gold standard for professional creatives and has also become the measure by which those computing platforms are rated against. That has once been the question about the iPad Pro and even the new M1 Macs, both of which run on ARM processors. Now almost a year after promising it, Adobe has fully released a native version of Photoshop for Windows 10 on ARM, with some caveats, of course.

Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

ARM-based computers, including the iPad Pro, have long been in existence but one thing that has held them back is the lack of familiar software and tools that people have come to rely on for work or personal use. To some extent, software like Adobe Photoshop has become a sort of litmus test and its absence has discouraged consumers from investing in these new devices and platforms. With Apple diving into the ARM world, however, Adobe can no longer really ignore this new wave of computing and has finally brought Photoshop not only to ARM-based Apple Silicon but, finally, to Windows on ARM as well.

Do we depend too much on “free” big tech services?

In the tech services world year it became clear that the free ride is over. We're talking about everything from email to music streaming, photos to files.

Photoshop, Illustrator on iPad gets live streaming feature

Photoshop, Illustrator on iPad gets live streaming feature

For years, it seemed that Adobe was mostly ignoring the rising popularity of Apple's iPads as creativity tools even when the first iPad Pros came out. Its apps for the large slates paled in comparison to its popular desktop software and has allowed competitors like Procreate to become household names in that market. It is slowly but surely trying to make up for lost time by adding what has become a rather popular feature among digital artists, the ability to stream their work to an online audience.

Here’s how Adobe plans to make digital art theft impossible

In addition to all of the product announcements it made today at MAX, Adobe also revealed new details for its Content Authenticity Initiative. This is still in the prototype stage, but the idea is to make it so photographers and artists can be properly attributed to their work through tamper-proof information attached to each image. If you’ve ever had someone steal your work without proper attribution, this could prove to be a very useful tool.
