Adobe Inc., Photoshop's manufacturer, said some of its applications had been knocked offline by "significant" technical issues Wednesday.

There were four major issues, down from 13 earlier, and 12 minor issues affecting Creative Cloud, Experience Cloud, Adobe Services and the Adobe Experience Platform as of 2 p.m. in New York, the San Jose, California-based company said. Adobe’s engineers were also trying to resolve other potential issues in progress.

"We are urgently working to get back online as soon as possible," Adobe told users on a tweet. A spokesperson said the technical problems are not linked to security.

Big public-cloud providers Google reported no support issues with Amazon.com Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Alphabet Inc., and the problems tend to be associated with the tech business. The shares of Adobe fell 1.6 per cent to $370.76. This year, the stock gained 14 per cent through the closing of Tuesday.
Adobe 's innovative and document apps depend on millions of users. The business said it has downloaded its Creative Cloud software 376 million times, and last year users opened 250 million PDFs through an Adobe application. Many businesses are using Adobe's marketing, advertisement and analytics tools, which have been hampered by the technical issues.
