Photoshop Express : Adobe Online Image Editor
http://www.photoshop.com/express
Photoshop Express : Adobe Online Image Editor
Photoshop Express, available for free with 2 gigabytes of storage, is a significant departure from Adobe's desktop software business and a big bet that it can make money offering Web services directly to consumers.
The application, which needs Flash Player 9 to run, pushes the limits of browser-based applications and will likely ratchet up the competition on the dozens of free and online photo-editing products available now.
Adobe intends to offer more features to consumers who pay a yearly fee. Some planned features include a printing service, more storage, support for audio and other media, and the ability to read additional image file types.
Photoshop Express is designed to be used essentially by anyone who uses a point and click digital camera.
People can organize photos by dragging them into albums or create a gallery to share images. The service also lets people email links images stored online, embed them in a Web page, or download them.
