Photoshop and Illustrator, two of Adobe’s most iconic products, are coming to the web. The American company has made this important announcement during Adobe MAX 2021, the annual conference where it usually presents many new features related to its creative tools.
The leap of Photoshop and Illustrator to the web, however, has one condition: it is, at least for the moment, a light version, reduced, that allows minor adjustments; not the full version. The idea is that a subscriber, in addition to making the aforementioned edits, can view their projects on the website, comment on the creations of others or even allow an external person, who does not even have a subscription to Adobe CC, to review the document in question.
What’s new for the Adobe suite
Beyond the above, Adobe has also announced multiple new features for the company’s other products. Among the most important are the following:
- The new Creative Cloud Spaces and Canvas allow, on the one hand, to create repositories with files that you can share with your team to speed up collaborative work; and, on the other hand, to show ideas or developments in a much simpler and visual way. All this, directly from the web browser.
- Masks are easier than ever in Photoshop. A new option allows you to select objects from an image in a much simpler way, in addition to being able to apply one of the many intelligent filters supported by Adobe Sensei.
- After Effects now features multi-frame rendering, which significantly improves the application’s performance (Adobe promises an increase of up to x4). In addition, Adobe has released the beta version of this app for Apple Silicon chips.
- Lightroom’s selective adjustment system is now much more intuitive, making it easier to apply specific edits to specific portions of an image.
