Adobe Photoshop Express – Review
By now, if you’re a designer or artist of any type, I’m sure you’ve heard at least some of the hype about Adobe’s free, on-line release of Photoshop. If not, please get caught up by checking out this post.
So, right off the bat, good things about Adobe Photoshop Express:
- With a name like Adobe, its gotta be good!
- On-line = easy access anywhere
- 2 Gigs of space?!?! YES!
Once you’ve created an account through the lovely Flash interface, and then received your confirmation e-mail and logged in, its time to upload! After you’ve uploaded and selected your first image to play with, you get a screen that looks something like this:
…nooot really enough options to be called Photoshop, although definitely Express! I think the term Photoshop is being used primarily to attract attention and gain users. Then again, it is the BETA version, sooo perhaps more options will be added later?!?
Here’s a shot of my “finished” product:
For every edit option you choose, the top bar displays around five-seven potential versions of that edit. You can see by the check marks which options I used on this photograph.
Overall, I’m not terribly impressed. And as seen by this post, its not even close to being more “advanced” than other on-line editors at this point.
Adobe…I must say you’ve somewhat failed me…
(Except for the lovely full version of CS3 that I personally own, so no real need for the on-line…but still! Its the principle of the thing!)
