…Adobe Photoshop Express won’t replace Photoshop?

Adobe Photoshop Express

Adobe’s newly launched Photoshop Express is a very beautiful looking, though unfortunately feature poor online photo editing solution.

If you’re looking for an online Photoshop replacement, then this is not it; but if you’re looking to do some simple editing with the power of Adobe doing most of the work for you, then Photoshop Express might be just what you’ve been waiting for.

One of the coolest features is definitely the ability to take the app full screen (and by full screen, I mean FULL screen), allowing you to easily forget that you’re working in a web environment. The downside is that you’re still working in a web environment, so things slow down a bit when you’re doing processor heavy tasks.

Tools include the ability to crop and rotate, auto correct, adjust exposure, remove red-eye, tune various aspects of the image, and add certain effects that work well at times and terribly at others.

One benefit of using the service is that Adobe is providing 2 GB of complimentary storage for your photos so that you can save and share them right from the Photoshop Express app itself.

It’s definitely not perfect, but it is a good start, and worth checking out, so hop on over and see what they’ve got going on.

…It’s Website Wednesday: YouTube Remixer?

YouTube’s Remixer is a web app that, in collaboration with Adobe’s Premiere Express, allows you to “create remixes by combining video clips, photos, and music with graphic effects, and transitions.”

    Sometimes, instant gratification video is just the thing you need.
    If you’ve ever uploaded from your cell phone, wished for an easy way to add titles and transitions, or just wanted to remix your own videos, Remixer is a great place to play. It lets you assemble your new video in an easy drag-and-drop timeline, and then publish it right back to YouTube. Your original videos will stay exactly the same.

Though you’re not going to be cranking out Academy Award wining films with this thing any time soon, it will be good to see a little flair added to the “hey, look what my new camera phone can do” videos that are currently proliferating the ‘Tube. Blair Witch 2, here I come.
