Photoshop Express now does Flickr
Woot, there it is! The subject line pretty much says it all: you can now browse and edit your photos stored on Flickr right from within Photoshop Express. I’ve just given the integration a whirl and, yep, it works like a charm. Similar hooks are available for photos stored on Facebook, Photobucket, and Picasa. (I’ve been uploading just to my own site since becoming, uh, photographically obsessed with one little subject, but maybe this will draw me back to using a service as well.)
As long as we’re on the subject, what’s your take on the importance of integrating services like Flickr into Photoshop? There’s an obvious appeal in being able to upload right from Lightroom, but should we make it possible to browse & open images on Photoshop.com & co. right from within Photoshop? (Let’s imagine we could drop in an optional little Flash widget as a browser palette/panel, or maybe enable browsing via Adobe Bridge.) What about being able to save edits back to the service? Just curious.
