This Might Sound Far Fetched. But I hope someone here knows...
Is it possible to apply a Photoshop effect on an image via a remote workstation?
Longer Explanation / Hypothetical:
Let's say I wanted to take Image.JPG and apply a Threshold filter on it. I don't have PS on my computer, so instead, I would upload it to a Dropbox folder that is shared on a remote workstation that has PS installed on it. I would then use Apple Automator to watch the Dropbox folder, open Photoshop, and run an action to apply the Threshold filter and save it back on the Dropbox where I have access to it remotely.
A real-life example:
When you upload a file to a site like [removed by moderator]. It auto applies your image to a bunch of mockups, all via the Interwebs. I'm dreaming of a system like this. Where I can have a team of people, who don't know PS to be able to upload any given image and apply specific PS effects / actions by only clicking a button.
What I know / What I don't:
I also understand I would need a dedicated workstation with PS installed, that is fine.
I'm curious how this would break the licensing agreement?
Let's say my team / organization has enterprise-level CC where everyone with the @organization.(com) email has access to the Creative Cloud. Not everyone has the knowledge capacity to execute even simple tasks, so this would help mitigate that issue.
Were they still making remote-access apps? I distinctly remember there being one (several?) for mobile devices but haven't even touched them in ages. You could set up something that way *but* you'd have to deal with any lag and deal with the UI of said remote-access app.
Also, heed what jane said: Even if you have enterprise, no one else but you (other than a trusted administrator) should be touching your machine. I say this not only from a legal perspective but also a practical, secure perspective.
I could have sworn I remember hearing there was going to be a version of Photoshop that ran in the cloud, on Chromebook, if I recall, but that ended...I think. I'm not sure; I don't use a Chromebook. xD
