Don’t want to drop big bucks for Photoshop? Its maker, Adobe is now offering a free version online, in a public beta release. It’s called Photoshop Express. Rather than being off-the-shelf software, it’s all online; you either upload your photos or you can import and export with a number of other websites such as Facebook, Photobucket and Picasa.
Photoshop Express also gives you 2 gigs of online photo storage. The interface should be familiar to anyone who’s used Photoshop or Photoshop Elements and offers tools like cropping, red eye correction, many other options and also has a set of advanced effects for changing colors, distorting images and converting photos to black and white. All editing is non-destructive, which means you can reverse any changes you make.
Who hasn’t heard of Photoshop? It sets the standard for photo editing. In fact, it’s so well-known that it’s become a common verb. The Express version is a great option if you want to do some quality picture editing without buying and installing anything – plus the online access means you can edit your photos anywhere, even from someone else’s computer.
