This morning Adobe launched a public beta of Photoshop Express. Photoshop Express is aimed at the casual user who is interested in performing fast edits. Along with the basic editing tools (think crop, resize, and rotation), Express comes with the “Tuning” and “Effects” tools.
Tuning allows you to adjust white balance, highlights, sharpen the photograph, and even apply a soft focus.
If you are feeling creative try applying an effect or six. Express comes with six effects that can easily be applied to an image. Use the “Pop Color” effect to make a specific color…well… “pop”, or apply one of the neat “Distort” effects. The other effects include sketch, black and white, hue, and tint.
Express also integrates with Facebook, Photobucket, and Picasa as well as offers an Adobe gallery for sharing photos straight from Express . You can also rate your images, add captions, and create albums.
All you need is an Internet connection and the Adobe Flash player (a bit of creativity helps). So…what are you waiting for? Go sign up!
