According to statements made by Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen in an interview published on News.com, the company plans to publish a modified version of Photoshop as a web application within an estimated six months. The announcement comes shortly after the company announced its intention to publish video editing tools online in association with the PhotoBucket.com website.
The online version of Photoshop will be free and aimed at home users, and they hope to make a profit from advertising revenue.
Chizen has described the plan as an attempt to offer these types of services before Google does, which has already revealed that these types of services would be part of the company’s future products.
The service will offer high-quality tools compared to other alternatives, as Chizen has stated, although it also warns that network bandwidth and latency could be a disadvantage for some users.
