Photoshop: Provide support for Linux

I was wondering if Adobe released any Photoshop versions for Linux? Because I looked everywhere in Adobe's site but I could not find any information.

I did, and couldn't find anything. All I found were articles on how to force Windows 7 to update to Windows 10 (not sure why there would be articles on how to do that if Windows 7 is forced to be upgraded to Windows 10 anyway), and how to disable forced updates from Windows 10 (i.e. how to prevent additional updates after you've already installed Windows 10). I didn't see anything about there being a forced update from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

What someone is being confused about here is that Windows 10 (once installed as a free upgrade) forces the user to receive security updates. There's no way to disable the automatic security updates in Windows 10.

However, there is no forced upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10.

Since Windows 10 is more Mickey Mouse (telephone) OS, many people need possibility to use Photoshop on PC under more serious operating system.  How about Photoshop for Linux?

Why is Photoshop not supported on Linux machines? Many apps are, including games, but not Photoshop.

As a web frontend developer. The only reason I have to use Windows is Photoshop.

Same question here. Would love to see Lightroom for Linux. I'm a professional photographer and webdesigner and left Windows and Apple years ago. I won't ever go back, so at the moment I have to be satisfied with Darktable and Aftershot Pro. Provide it, and I will buy it and use it, and I know a lot of other people will too.

Adobe Sales Management;

As you are aware, PC, Laptop, and Mac/Apple sales are diving across the American horizon. People just are not falling for the Microsoft Dog and Pony show. Even Dell has laptops under the $160.00 mark and these are Windows 10 Machines. Ubuntu and other Linux distros to include the crushing armies of Androids are storming the gates. There is even an Android version for the Intel PCs and Asia is working on a full-blown Android OS that will encompass and integrate Google as Android does now. This is built upon Linux.

You have to be seeing this.
You have to be aware of the fall of Microsoft.
Do you guys even look at sales? 

You will be forced to make a Linux-Based suite whether you like it or not. You will have to do so to survive.

According to Stackoverflow Survey 2017, Linux Desktop is the second most common platform used by developers: https://insights.stackoverflow.com/survey/2017#technology-platforms

It is also the most loved: https://insights.stackoverflow.com/survey/2017#technology-most-loved-dreaded-and-wanted-platforms

I know that me and my developer collegues would buy Photoshop if it would be available for Linux.

I will run Photoshop and Illustrator in a VM for eternity ... or until you make them native on linux. I think there's a ton of devs waiting for this, because Windows is a caveman O/S, and Macs are overpriced.

@ Oscar: and Macs are overpriced... and annoying and egocentric and ugly (imho). Currently I'm using Aftershot Pro and Gimp which work very well for me as a photographer. As a webdesigner I'm using Inkscape + Gimp, and that combination also works for me. Using a Linux convertor I can even deliver cmyk files to a print service or publisher, never had any complaints.

I'm going to have to take a look at Aftershot Pro. Being that I'm a long time Photoshop user (and paid Adobe a lot of money for all the upgrades over the years), I've really felt like moving away from it is only worth it if there's something that is at least as good. My experience with Gimp was that it wasn't. Even something like a clipping mask, which is easy in PS is just not possible with Gimp (or it wasn't the last time I tried). I use clipping masks a lot, so it's a must have feature for me.

Same thing goes for Illustrator. I haven't tried Inkscape, but I will. I can tell you one thing for sure, if Adobe doesn't make native Linux versions of their software, I will never be there customer again. I may someday be forced to use Gimp. I moved away from other operating systems a couple years ago, and with the exception of Photoshop and Illustrator, everything else I need is available for Linux. Most of it for free, as you know. I'm never going back to Windows or Mac (unless I'm paid a lot to do it).

You are right ofcourse, I remember I used clipping masks a lot when exporting eps files for publishers. Because I don't do a lot of desktop publishing anymore I can do without Photoshop and Illustrator. Gimp took me a while in getting used to it, and except some things I miss, like simply Ctrl-click on a layer with transparency to select the object in that layer, clicking the mask tool and voila..., I even like working with Gimp more than I did with Photoshop.

By the way, I only use Aftershot Pro for raw converting, but since I use it, I barely touch Gimp. And when I have to, I can click on External Editor to open Gimp and there I can edit the image as a tif image. The only thing is that Gimp can't handle 16 and 32 bit images just yet, only the new development version and upcoming version 2.9.

So you are absolutely right about the advantages of Photoshop and Illustrator. I just coped and got used to the current limitations, which gave me one big win: I don't have to deal with the frustrations of working with Windows or Apple ;).

I'm also photographer from Russia, and using Darktable/Rawtherapee/Aftershot for editing RAW files. But if Adobe will do Lightroom and Photoshop for Linux, its will be very cool.
Shut up, and take my money :)

We as a company install and support Linux for our customers. One of our oldest client is a magazine publisher, whose whole infrastructure runs on linux. only for proof checking images they have a windows box in a vm for photoshop. They sure would pay for a photoshop on linux license, but not for windows os.
So please adobe people port PS to linux and cash in...

Hello,

If theres something I would love to use on my Linux machine it is the Adobe Suite. A large amount of us, the linux users, are involved with the web technologies and videogames. You may understand that in the process of development we need some tools for our graphical content, and the Adobe Suite excels for this kind of work.

As many other people, I stopped using Windows long time ago - more than 2 years -. I have a Mac and a Linux. The only great benefit I see from using the Mac, it is because there are more programs than on Linux. For the rest, even the terminal and the Graphical UI are very similar.

That said I end up suggesting you to port your Adobe programs for Linux. By doing it, I am sure the market share will really increment and then you could earn a lot of money.

Think of Linux. It is free so anyone can use it. Ubuntu for example is pretty straightforward to use, and Windows for example has lots of problems with viruses.

I am sure you use Linux in your servers - unless you have a deal with Microsoft in which case it all is self explanatory. Give us all the joy of having great software on this great OS ecosystem of Linux.
