…Ryan Cashman is talented?

Ryan Cashman

Ryan Cashman also has a lot of time.

By taking tons of 20-30 second long exposures using his DSLR, and then stringing them together in a time lapse/stop motion fashion, he was able to create a fantastic video using nothing more than a green LED keychain, a camera, and time.

…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.
