On Thursday, Adobe announced that it will release a free, online version of Photoshop within the next six months. The version will be a bare bones variant of the program’s full version according to an article on CNNMoney.com.
Though unconventional, the move is part of a larger effort to draw users toward the program, enticing them to purchase the full packaged version as well as to lure online advertising dollars.
Last month, Adobe announced an upcoming partnership with online image and video hosting site Photobucket to provide free access to its online version of Photoshop to the site’s 35 million strong user base.
The firm has also announced that it will announce similar partnerships with other Internet-based companies in the coming months to attract additional users towards Photoshop.
Adobe Photoshop CS2, the current version, currently retails for US$649 for a full copy and US$169 for an upgrade version of the program.
Stay tuned for further news on this when Adobe launches the site.
