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.

We currently have no plans to build a version of Photoshop for Linux.

There are literally dozens of threads for this, many receiving hundreds and thousands of votes and responses on each. Forums have been closed due to high popularity of the threads.

This is getting absolutely ridiculous. Your fans in Linux, and your users who wish to switch dont even care if its native or emulated. Just make it happen.

I would like to use hundrends of insults to your comment, but I should consider you don't understand. We are serious Artists that would like to use a real Operating System using FULL FUNCTIONAL. Of course we need it native, How do I will use my Wacom? Your comment is cleverless and . . . just leave it in ignorant and cleverless.

Forget Wine. Wacom Driver it can be usable if it's Native. I need it for 3D, concept and ilustration. A Wine instalation is not enough.

The Wacom compatibility layer would be provided by Linux (which has full support for Wacom, I'm using my Intuos Pro M right now) for the Wine application, so I don't see the problem 🙂

I got the response by mail but it doesn't appear here, so I will repond to it anyways. I didn't mean to provide support trough Wine, I mean that Linux has full native support for Wacom tablets, and you don't need to have it in Wine, since Linux will take care of that.

That's the point. Adding my comment is. Running Photoshop via Wine is useless for Ilustrators or concept artist. Even worse for 3D Artists. Wacom have support on linux, and thank to the native express keys configuration with gnome 3. Understand guys. Autodesk, and many other giants are passing to Linux as well, What's wrong with you Adobe?!

BTW - there are 2 threads for this: one here, and one on the defunct feature request forum on the forums.adobe.com site. And there are still less than a hundred votes. Exaggerating the demand is not helping your case (and you might want to look up the definition of the word "literally").

I think that the reality on such decisions looks inverese to the plain market oriented and profitability approach of marketeers.

I think Linux doesn't flourish because players like Adobe don't decide to support it properly. If Adobe decided to support it the plattform would get a big boost. So things are little different. If adobe pushed linux, it could go through the roof.

People are deciding against Linux (at least me) because their tools won't work with it.
Look over to valve or google. I'm sure at some point there won't be any more the question of supporting Linux or not. I'd love to see Adobe pioneering a little more ;-)

Never the less I'm sure we can safely trust the obvious fact that Microsoft is hiding their absurd incompetence when it comes to writing operating systems, or at least keeping up with their competition. There's parts of windows 8 which still seem to be relicts from Win 98 also no profound file-system and an ugly, slow, clumpy and big intransparent overall architecture. They're digging their own grave if they don't slim that beast down.

Two options:
1. Windows dies at some point and nobody notices because all people switched to more advanced competition.
2. Windows somehow faces its problems, slims that s#@t down and gets their system back on track. (still losing market share due to outstanding and advancing alternatives)

Both ways include happier customers and Adobe at some point reconsidering their Linux strategy ;-)

Big cheeers.

Thank you Micheal! I had no idea that Corel Aftershot Pro existed for Linux! I just tested the trial version and bought it right away... it works fantanstic on xubuntu 14.04!

As an IT Consultant, I've had so many complaints from many of my SMB customers about having a good viable commercial image cataloging & RAW format editing application for the layman on linux desktops, and now I have something to show them!

Cheers & Thanks Again!!!!

Would like to divorce myself from Windows and OSx entirely but I can't because CC only works with those OS interfaces. If CC can port the OSX version over to a gnome shell, we could build/buy more capable machines at a fraction of the cost to do some great things. Like get better lenses.

Mac vs GNU/Linux - 9,6% vs 5,3%

https://www.humblebundle.com/

Average Windows: $7.89
Average Mac: $9.91
Average Linux: $10.93

We are professionalists(most of us are coders), whose use professional operating system. We have high payment and we know how to buy software.

You can suport only Ubuntu like Valve.

Windows Phone 8 has 1,9% now but you bring them mobile PS 😉

Why not say adobe to place a pre-order for photoshop for linux to see how many people would buy it, and if they see for example 100'000 people would buy it, after they can develop it and pay their cost.

What do you think ? A kind like the ubuntu-phone has done

@dominique

That would be great, but i already pay 19,99 euro monthly for Photoshop and Lightroom and still cant install these apps on my favourite OS 'cause of Adobe politic. I understand that business is business, but how i can be loyal to Adobe company if they piss on my needs?

I use Aftershot Pro 2 instead of Lightroom 'cause Corel have made Linux version some time ago. If they port Paintshop on Linux i will drop Adobe products.

Lightroom-> Corel Aftershot Pro 2/Darktable(for regular user)
Premiere-> Lightworks
Photoshop-> Paintshop(?)

not trying to beat a dead horse here but thats basically what we have to do at this point to try and get ANY attention driven to this. its really sad that this topic is four years old and during AskAdobeCare this is where i got told to go. really adobe? four years old and you still havent seen that there is a fair amount of interest in having your product on an open platform. i would even be willing to pay a little more per month on my CC subscription if it meant i could have a linux version that was actively worked on. even if it didnt get the latest updates right away, just get a version working there. start with that. release a freaking trimmed free version to work out some bugs we all know that you are going to have. and let us help you develop the product we want.

While I would like PS for Linux, it seems clear to me there is not a large enough market for it. If so many people are willing to pay for it, why don't they just donate to hire programmers to work on GIMP instead?

because even if you poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into the GIMP project, it would still take several years to get it to where photoshop already is at. adobe i bet could port this in 6 months to a year.

We have no way of knowing whether it would be cheaper or take longer to update GIMP or port PS.

But PS Linux support has been requested for many years, so I would be surprised if Adobe will ever implement support. Even if the donations didn't get GIMP up to the level of doing everything that PS can, they might make it 'good enough' for your uses. Whereas telling Adobe that you want it for Linux and are willing to pay has no effect.

It is my understanding that GIMP also plans to implement node based editing (effectively the history of edits are recorded rather than the results of edits), which could actually put it ahead of Photoshop.

Windows 10 changes things... Forced upgrades and reboots remind one more of the failed communist era versus a progressively improving technology. As an aside, forced upgrades and reboots are also not sustainable--especially in the enterprise business where backwards compatibility is key. Ergo, Mircrosoft just f**d itself in a very hard way.

While Windows will surely become deprecated by its own volition, the question to have Adobe products on Linux becomes more relevant. I could make-do with a VM optimized version of Adobe CC, but only if it ran under XP as Windows 7 is being forced by Microsoft to upgrade to Windows 10. If XP support is not possible, then let's stop suggesting VM as a solution--as it is simply not realistic.

All of my servers are Linux already. They are integrated into AD and function just fine. I have a couple of steps left to go before decom'ing all of my remaining windows servers, but that's really neither here nor there. More importantly, I would love to drop Windows on the desktop, but things like Photoshop really stop me.

Adobe has a chance right now to seize on the moment before it becomes a tidal wave.

@markus Lankeit I'm pretty sure Windows 7 is not being forced to upgrade to 10. Do you have any source for this?
