Photoshop has been a paid application for a long time. It's a very handy tool for designers, and it keeps getting better with each update since Creative Cloud was introduced. However, there's one catch: you can only use it if you've installed it on your computer.

The idea of a web version of Photoshop was initially quite thrilling for some folks. Now, it's no longer in the testing phase, and there are a few differences compared to when it was first introduced.

You can now use Photoshop on the web, and it's designed to be user-friendly. While it looks a bit different from the desktop version, it still has most of the same powerful features, including the cool AI stuff like Generative Expand and Generative Fill. These features let you play around with images and make them bigger or fill them in creatively. Plus, there's a handy floating Contextual Task Bar to help you out. So, it's pretty much like having Photoshop on your computer, but right in your web browser.

There's an important difference compared to the original idea for Photoshop on the web. Initially, there were discussions about offering a free-to-use web version alongside a paid "freemium" option. However, Adobe has changed its stance on this and currently has no immediate plans for a free-to-use version. Now, to access Photoshop on the web, you need to subscribe to one of the paid Photoshop plans, which starts at $9.99 per month. This means that if you already have the desktop version, you also get access to the web version. This might not be very appealing to some users because, in that case, they might prefer using the more robust desktop version on their computer, unless they're on a platform like ChromeOS where the desktop version isn't available. It's a bit disappointing, indeed.

The online version of Photoshop is becoming available for Creative Cloud members. You can try it out to see how it works and how it stacks up against the computer version.
