Photoshop goes online, free
Adobe today announced an online, free, version of its popular Photoshop application. The Flash-based Photoshop Express application is a stripped down version of Photoshop allowing users to manipulate and store their images online. And because Photoshop Express is Flash-based the application will run across most operating systems including Linux, Mac and Windows.
Many of the advanced features of Photoshop, such as layers and adding text, are not included in PE which is geared at everyday users that simply want to make their photos look better. PE makes it easy to crop and rotate pictures, add highlights, correct exposures and adjust hues among others manipulations
Registering for an account on the Photoshop Express site gives users access to up to 2GB of free storage space in a style similar to Flickr. The storage space syncs with Facebook, MySpace and Picasa meaning users can pull pictures from those albums and edite them directly. Flickr syncing is apparently due within a few weeks.
