This is awesome!

I have been a long time lover of Adobe products.  PhotoShop is without a question probably one of my all time favorite pieces of software.  Now Adobe has released PhotoShop Express in a free public beta version.  I’ve just started looking around at it and it is pretty cool.  I think that obviously Adobe has released Express to compete with online photo storing/editing sites like Flickr and Picnik but that is okay because as market competition increases these various applications will need to develop cooler tools and user options so as to sell their products, which just says good news to us consumers.

I think I will spend some time playing with PhotoShop Express today at work.

  1. Good to know our tax dollars are being put to good use. 😀

  2. sure as hell wouldn’t want to waste that money

  3. Looks like you’re giving Adobe most of the rights to your images if you upload them to PS Express. That may or may not matter to users, since people that make a living through photography probably have the full version. The fine print:

    “Adobe does not claim ownership of Your Content. However, with respect to Your Content that you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Services, you grant Adobe a worldwide, royalty-free, nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable license to use, distribute, derive revenue or other remuneration from, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such Content (in whole or in part) and to incorporate such Content into other Materials or works in any format or medium now known or later developed.”

  4. yeah, I read that too. I guess it comes down to what you like to do with your images. I feel like if you are trying to professionally work with photographs or other images you will probably set up your own gallery space somewhere (or at least that is what I’d recommend). If on the other hand, you are like me, and just like displaying work for people to look at, then I think that PS Express is pretty good and the fine print doesn’t bother me too much (maybe a little but I shrug it off pretty quick). I guess if Adobe wants to use any of my images or photos that is fine with me, in fact I’d be pretty thrilled and use it as bragging rights.
