Adobe Photoshop in a web browser

Adobe have announced a plan to deliver their flagship industry standard bitmap editing product Photoshop as an online hosted application.

The online release will probably be a scaled back version compared to the desktop version.

With Google already going down the online application path, its only a matter of time before they try to muscle into Adobe's dominant market share. It would appear Adobe have preempted this action before Google and other competitors beat them to it.

It will be interesting to see what sort of model they deliver, especially with regards to licensing, when you consider Google are renowned for making (or acquiring) great applications and releasing them for free.

I can't see this being of much use. Photoshop is a professional application with a niche market. I use it daily in my job and regularly deal with files tens or hundreds of megabytes large. Imagine that over an internet connection?

They would have to scale it back to popular functionality, but then Google's Picasa already does that and its free.

This is going to be the future of software deployment. A lot of apps are already useable in a browser Google has already demonstrated with">online documents and spreadsheet office. Oh and its free. Microsoft might not feel threatened now but Google have some smart people working for them.
