Adobe Photoshop: the Free Web Version

added by Michael on 27 Mar 2008

Adobe announced today that their long-awaited free web-version of Photoshop, dubbed Adobe Photoshop Express, is now available as a Beta.

Members can edit and store up to 2 GB of images in their account.

From InfoWorld:

Photoshop Express allows users to store up to 2 gigabytes of images, make edits to their photos, and share them, all online.

It is a way for Adobe to compete with free applications like Google's Picasa, which have emerged over the last few years.

Since it's to be used by consumers, the company has put a lot of effort on ease-of-use. In a few clicks, users will be able to make standard edits, such as removing blemishes and red-eye, converting to black and white, cropping and resizing. No experience is required, Adobe said.

Users will also be able to integrate with social networking sites like Facebook.

Photoshop Express works with all major browsers, including Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari, Adobe said. It requires an Internet connection and Flash Player 9 to work.

The tool is based on Flex, Adobes cross-browser plug-in technology for multimedia.
