Newly launched is Adobe Photoshop Express, a free web application that you can sign up for and get 2 gigs of space to edit and share your photos to your hearts desire. Every demo seemed to have a photo of a dog, so I decided to try out the application with a little doggie dear to my heart, little Lulu. If Photoshop intimidated you before, don’t worry with Photoshop Express. The interface is clear and really easy to use. All the function buttons are in a left-hand side bar and you can do all the basics, crop, color correct, remove red-eye, touchup and more. I love playing around with the some of the fun effects like Pop Color. Who knew I could dye Lulu’s hair blue in an instant? The application also links into Facebook, Photobucket, and Picasa. You’ll also love the speed too. For manipulating a high-res photo, I found the whole application to run pretty fast. One last thing, I will point out is make sure you read the disclaimer well before you sign up and agree to the terms. Agreeing to the service gives Adobe worldwide rights to your photos/content now and in the future. If you’re ok with that, then go for it!
