Adobe Photoshop streamlines power and precision for the web; now includes widely popular Adobe Firefly powered features
Introducing Photoshop on the web
Today we are releasing Photoshop on the web as part of all Photoshop plans, complete with newly released Adobe Firefly generative AI features including Generative Fill and Generative Expand. This is a major milestone since we introduced Photoshop on the web as a beta experience, where we started with an early preview of image editing capabilities. We have collaborated with our community and received valuable feedback from thousands of users in more than 40 countries. With this release we are starting with a focus on the needs of creators who are new to Photoshop with a streamlined user experience. And, of course, existing Photoshop users, who want access to tools like Generative Fill from any web browser, will also benefit from Photoshop on the web.
With Photoshop on the web, you now have more ways to access the power of Photoshop and can get started in just a few clicks with no download or installation. You can start new creations from scratch or pick up where you left off on any Photoshop document on the web and if you prefer, you can jump back into the desktop app with the click of a button. You can also invite others to collaborate with you - even if they do not have a Photoshop subscription - by sharing a link.
A look at what’s new
Since we launched Photoshop on the web in beta, we have brought the majority of the most commonly used Photoshop tools to the web and have streamlined the user experience, to make it easier for newer users to navigate the app. For example, tools in the toolbar are grouped together based on workflows –to make it easier to retouch a portrait, select an object in your image, or to apply a quick action and more. We have also added tool names to the toolbar for users who are not yet familiar with Photoshop tool icons. Users who prefer an interface that is more like the desktop interface can easily hide this view to work in a way they are most familiar.
Generative Fill and Generative Expand now on web
In addition to Photoshop's most commonly used tools, we have also brought the magic of Adobe Firefly, a new family of creative generative AI models, to Photoshop on the web. Generative Fill and Generative Expand, which were recently released in Photoshop desktop, are available in the browser. These features allow you to add, expand, or remove content from your images non-destructively, while magically matching perspective, lighting, and style of your image to deliver truly mind-blowing results. You can do all this with simple text prompts in over 100 languages and achieve realistic results.
With generative AI natively integrated alongside Photoshop's powerful editing tools, you can create in new ways while also ensuring you are in control of every last detail, all from your browser.
The Contextual Task Bar and what’s next
Created in Photoshop on the web by Anna McNaught
We have brought the wildly popular contextual task bar, first introduced in June in Photoshop desktop, to the web. The Contextual Task Bar is an on-screen menu that recommends the most relevant next steps in several key workflows, reducing the number of clicks needed to complete a project, and makes the most common actions more easily accessible. For example, save steps in common workflows like replacing the background of an image or adjusting the lighting and tone of your images.
Photoshop on the web does not have all the features from desktop but you should expect to see more of your favorites like the patch tool, pen tool, smart object support, polygonal lasso, and more soon.
We can’t wait to see what you create!
