You can install Photoshop on Linux using PlayOnLinux using a new script. The script will install Adobe CC apps correctly on Ubuntu and other Linux distros.
We're all aware The GIMP is the best free alternative to Photoshop — but is there a way to make it look like Photoshop, too?
Earlier today we brought word that Adobe's CS2 suite of apps were, rather suddenly, free to download and install. It now transpires that we were misinformed. Adobe employee Dov Isaacs took to the Adobe forum earlier this evening to say that Adobe are 'absolutely not' giving away free copies of Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS2 or any other part of the Adobe Creative Suite - CS2 or otherwise.
Adobe have apparently made Photoshop, along with several other Creative Suite 2 applications, free to download. And the best bit? Photoshop CS2 will even run on Ubuntu.
The on-going campaign to persuade Adobe to release (at least parts) of their 'Creative Suite' software on Linux is beginning to resemble a game of tic-tac-toe: One second it appears to be going one way and then, slam, a big fat 'X' falls down, and the game is off in a different direction.
An employee at Adobe has stated that "the request [for Adobe Creative Suite] is now most definitely on the radar of our engineering teams, so it can be considered for future development" in reference to the staggering demand for Photoshop on Linux.
