Photoshop express

Adobe has released a free web-based version of their most popular image editing program, called Photoshop Express. The software allows for a number of fairly basic modifications, including cropping, exposure correction, saturation and white balance changes, and sharpening. One nice touch is that it does allow the conversion of images to black and white using any of several virtual colour filters. The free service includes two gigabytes of storage, and seems to include mechanisms for integrating with Facebook, Photobucket, and Picasa.

The web version has nothing on the full version of Photoshop – lacking tools like levels and curves, not to mention paths, masking and the thousands of other things that make Photoshop so versatile. That said, it’s a nice thing to be able to use in a pinch, when nothing more capable is readily available.
