Edit Photos Just Like In Photoshop: You CAN Do That On A Chromebook! ~ makeuseof | Chromebooks at School | Scoop.it

by Daniel Price

 

"Chromebooks are fantastic machines. As the quality of the apps in the Chrome Web Store improves they’re becoming increasingly capable of doing everything that your primary PC or Mac can do, but for a fraction of the cost. Their security, ease of use, and portability is rapidly making them a popular choice for schools, businesses, and university students – all of whom are taking note of their advantages.

 

"In the previous piece in this series we looked at how, contrary to some people’s opinions, Chromebooks can play Google Play movies and television shows when offline. The latest installment in our mini-series looks at the wide choice of high quality photo editors that are available to all Chrome users."
