Hi All!!!!
I've been considering purchasing a Google Chromebook, to use just for scrapbooking. Is there anyone that is already using Adobe Photoshop on a Chromebook?? I just wondered if anyone is already using it and can give me the thumbs up - or thumbs down.

Thanks for all your tips and advise!!

Lisa :)

I've not heard of this, now I'm going to have to go check it out. :)

edited to add:

Interesting, that's for sure! In a quick search, it appears that only the Samsung Chromebook 550 has a memory card slot which would be a must-have for me, to transfer photos from my camera.

I'll watch this thread to see what others have to say. Thanks Lisa!

I'm not completely sure, but I think at least some of the Chromebooks are designed to use only for web-browsing and other Google-based apps. You might want to double check that there is a way to install Photoshop on one. I know the Mac store has PSE as an app, maybe the Google store does, too?

I have a Chromebook and you can not add any programs to it. Everything runs off the internet (Google Chrome). You can use picmonkey and make layouts. You can add your digi files as layers in picmonkey. The sizes are funky though. I am still playing around on it.
