Adobe may soon introduce NFT support for Photoshop
Although the concept of “non-fungible tokens” (NFT) for artworks is attractive, it does not seem to properly solve the problem of “theft prevention”.Recently, however, it has been reported that Adobe is planning to build a special system for Photoshop to help prove that the content creator and the NFT seller are the same person.It is said that through so-called “Content Credentials” (Content Credentials), sellers can associate Adobe ID with their cryptocurrency wallet.

Of course, this mechanism still needs the compatible support of the NFT market in order to show buyers a trustworthy certificate to prove the authenticity of the source of the artwork.
During a Decoder interview, Adobe Chief Product Officer Scott Belsky talked about “preparation for NFT.” If all goes well, Photoshop will open the preview experience at the end of this month.
Belsky pointed out that the attribution data created by the content voucher will be stored on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS).
As a decentralized file hosting method, it entrusts the responsibility of keeping data safe and available to a network, rather than just a company (somewhat similar to the way the BT system works).
The first batch of NFT markets that support the integrated display of Adobe ID attribution information include platforms such as OpenSea, Rarible, KnownOrigin, and SuperRare.
Considering that art anti-theft has always been a major problem in the NFT world, and anyone can easily create NFT content (even if they do not own the copyright of the original work), the construction of a blockchain corresponding to the copyright is quite necessary.
In addition, Adobe hopes to use this NFT system to test other uses, such as showing which parts of the file have been edited through Photoshop software, and adding relevant marks to Adobe’s image library.
