As far as creative apps go, Adobe seems to be on a roll.
During the Adobe MAX conference in October, we were given a glimpse of some really cool stuff they are planning in collaboration with Microsoft.
We also got some really innovative, touch-friendly live demos of some really powerful enhancements to Photoshop and Illustrator. This also included some of their upcoming tools – Animal for a character animation and an updated “Project Context”, an in-person collaborative tool which was also showcased during last years event.
Finally, this week we got the news that Adobe’s collaboration with Google to bring a streaming version of Photoshop to Chromebooks is now in beta. They have achieved this by making the application available via the Chromw Web Store and then streaming a copy of Photoshop running on a remote server to the browser. It is similar to using a Remote Desktop connection to access software installed on another computer. It also runs fully on the crowd and could potentially pave the way for a version of Photoshop that runs on any browser. More details about this can be found here.
