How to Install and Run Photoshop on Chromebook

Adobe Photoshop is so far the industry-standard editing tool for Windows and macOS. It is considered to be the best editing software in raster graphics editing and even in entire digital art. Photoshop, being a high performing software, the workload it puts upon a system is extremely high. This is where Chromebook users struggle. Due to Photoshop’s high demand for power, Chromebook so far is never going to withstand the tension it creates.

In addition to this, Chromebook also fails to handle .exe files, which means that the full-fledge version of Adobe Photoshop simply won’t work on Chromebooks. However, Chromebook’s power is sufficient for Adobe’s lighter siblings of Photoshop such as Photoshop Express, Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Fix, etc.. So for everyone looking to install and run those software on a Chromebook, our guide on how to install and run Photoshop on Chromebook will help.

How to Install and Run Photoshop on Chromebook

  1. To start with, open up Applications on your Chromebook OS
  2. From there, head inside Google Play Store
  3. In the search bar, type in Photoshop and search for it
  4. This will give you the list of all Adobe applications that are lighter than the full-fledged Abode Photoshop. Some examples are Photoshop Express, Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Fix, etc. From the list, you can choose to download whichever Adobe program you want
  5. Moving on, simply choose a program of your choice and Install it
  6. Finally, in order to run them, simply open Applications and you’ll find the installed Photoshop programs there. Just click on it and it will open the program.

Since Chromebook isn’t a device that can effectively contain the actual Adobe Photoshop, installing and using the non-desktop version of Photoshop’s lighter siblings is our only choice. However, until Chromebook brings about major changes regarding this matter, the Adobe clients on the Play Store will suffice.
