Adobe is trying to make Photoshop more accessible by introducing a free Photoshop service, that will be limited to the web. It will be actually freemium as in the core Photoshop functions will be free while some other features will be locked behind a paywall. That’s one thing but another catch is that the free Photoshop for the web is available in Canada only. That too is in testing although soon the stable release will be out and in time make its way to other markets.

Coming to how to get Photoshop Free on the web, currently, users in Canada just need to sign in to the Photoshop beta program (after filling a short survey). You should be able to use the free version now.

Adobe Photoshop Web Free: What to expect

The early iteration of this free Adobe Photoshop Web was first shared in October with just some basic editing features. This includes core functions of Photoshop and layers but was still far from the full scope of Photoshop repertoire. 

That was more like a collaboration tool for artists to work together on an image with others, make some changes, and annotate others.

However, this new version of Photoshop free plan is beyond a collaborative tool and can be logged in from anywhere with just a free online Adobe account. Its new features include:

Refine edges
Create curve layers
Dodge and burn 
Convert Smart Objects. 
Mobile support for reviewing and commenting on images
Neural Filter for AI-based color restoration to old yellowed photos

Going forward we are likely to see more features added to this free Photoshop.

“We want to make [Photoshop] more accessible and easier for more people to try it out and experience the product. I want to see Photoshop meet users where they’re at now. You don’t need a high-end machine to come into Photoshop,” said Maria Yap, Adobe’s VP of digital imaging while announcing the new Photoshop experience.
