We registered with Adobe and within minutes were uploading and editing our first images with the company's new online image editor.
Today's announcement by Adobe that it had launched Photoshop Express, its latest "Rich Internet Application," as a public beta came with adjustment layers of meaning.
On the surface, Photoshop Express is an online image editing application.
The public beta can be used free of charge using nothing more than your browser with the latest Flash 9 player and a broadband connection to the Internet. Even better, there's no manual to read (or even a Read Me), nothing to install and nothing to update.
Photoshop Express makes it very easy to do a wide range of edits -- even from images stored at Photobucket, Facebook and Picasa -- and provides public galleries to show off your albums and slide shows.
But that's just skimming the surface. Explore Adobe's intriguing new approach to image editing in our preview, complete with screen shots of our first session.
