Google has announced plans to partner with Adobe, bringing Photoshop to its line of Chromebooks.

The program has been dubbed Project Photoshop Streaming, and is currently still in beta and will be available to select Creative Cloud subscribers to start.

The company is set to offer the special cloud-based version of Photoshop to students and teachers who use Chromebooks in their classrooms.

Both Adobe and Google have also revealed that the streaming version will carry similar functions of the desktop version, but will be entirely cloud-based.

In a blog post, Google wrote: “This streaming version of Photoshop is designed to run straight from the cloud to your Chromebook.

“It’s always up-to-date and fully integrated with Google Drive, so there’s no need to download and re-upload files – just save your art directly from Photoshop to the cloud.”

It will be available first to U.S based Adobe education customers with a paid Creative Cloud membership.

This news comes after Adobe announced its acquisition of Aviary, bringing photo editing tools to mobiles.
