Adobe has revealed the results of its efforts with Google to get Adobe Photoshop working in the Chrome browser.

They say that the version they have now is effectively a full-fledged version of Photoshop being streamed remotely to the browser. Javascript sends the user’s commands back to the virtual machine running the software.

According to The Verge, you can do everything you would practically be able to do in a local copy of Photoshop, only with one omission – Photoshop’s 3D features which require a GPU.

The obvious obstacles Adobe has to circumvent are to do with latency, something that is dependent on both Adobe’s server infrastructure and individual user’s internet connections.

Subsequently there’s no word on a public release date yet, but Adobe is launching a limited trial for educational institutions that wish to take part, in an attempt to solve any issues people may encounter.
