Photoshop Compatibility Guide: Chromebook, Big Sur, Ipad…

Is Photoshop compatible with Chromebook?

No, the full Photoshop program is not compatible with Chromebook. This is because the hardware can’t support running a heavy program like Photoshop and because .exe files can’t be installed on the Chrome OS. However, Chromebooks can access Android apps through the Google Play Store so if you wanted you could get other Adobe image editing apps such as Photoshop Express on your Chromebook.

Is Photoshop compatible with Big Sur?

Yes, the latest version of Photoshop is compatible with Big Sur. However, there are still some glitches that Adobe is working on resolving. The latest version of Photoshop runs on Big Sur but users have reported issues such as Photoshop freezing on startup and when saving a File for Web, crashing when using certain filters, and issues with the Pattern option.

Older versions of Photoshop are unfortunately not compatible with Big Sur and Adobe recommends that if you’re in the middle of a project it’s best to finish it up and get a backup of all your data before updating to Big Sur.
