Chromebooks have long been touted as great machines for users who “don’t need anything more than a browser.” But as time has gone on, the machines have gotten more powerful, with more program options are available than ever before. If you thought editing photos from a Chromebook wasn’t possible, it’s time to give it another look.
Now, I’m not suggesting you’re going to replace your Windows PC or Mac with a Chromebook for graphic design work, because that just ain’t gonna happen. What I am suggesting, however, is that for light-to-moderate photo editing jobs, you might be remiss to not at least consider a Chromebook. There are more options out there than you might think, and as long as you keep your expectations in check, you can have a great image editing experience on Chrome OS.
