Adobe releases web versions of Photoshop and Illustrator

Adobe is working on web versions of Photoshop and Illustrator. The Photoshop web app is already available in open beta, but the beta of the Illustrator web version is still closed. The company has also released new features for several Creative Cloud apps.

Adobe reports that the web versions of Photoshop and Illustrator will be available to all Creative Cloud subscribers in due course. These are simplified versions, which do not contain all the functions of the regular app. Users of these web apps can share Photoshop and Illustrator files with others via a URL. Recipients do not need a Creative Cloud subscription to view and leave comments, but they do need to be subscribed to make “minor tweaks.”

The company will also be adding new features to its CC apps on Tuesday, including the desktop version of Photoshop. Photoshop gets a hover auto-masking feature, which uses Adobe Sensei, the company’s AI engine. Users can automatically mask an object in an image by moving the mouse cursor over it. There will also be new Neural Filters, which also use Adobe Sensei. Such filters can, for example, mimic the sky colors of a sunset in a landscape photograph.

The iPad version of Photoshop will receive support for raw files, including Apple ProRAW. Illustrator for iPads is getting a preview version of “Vectorize,” which allows users to convert any image into a vector image, and the desktop version of this application will include enhanced 3D effects. Adobe Lightroom will also receive an AI function with which objects and backgrounds can be edited separately from each other.

In terms of video editing, ‘Multi-frame Rendering’ has been added to After Effects, which Adobe says makes better use of processors with multiple cores. The company claims that previews are “up to four times faster” as a result. Rendering speed should also be higher. Premiere Pro has better speech-to-text and a Simplify Sequence feature that automatically cleans up users’ timeline. For example, unused audio and video tracks are removed and holes in the timeline are removed, writes XDA Developers. Adobe InDesign is getting native support for Apple’s M1 chips, and the company is also releasing an After Effects beta for Macs with Apple Silicon chips.
