Adobe today announced the immediate availability of Adobe Photoshop Express Editor, Photoshop Express Organizer, and Photoshop Express Uploader, a free set of integrated online apps for editing, organizing, syncing, and sharing photos.
Available atPhotoshop.com, these renamed and redesigned apps are faster and more intuitive to use for uploading and organizing photos for easy access anywhere, applying quick fixes and fun effects, and sharing albums and slideshows online with family, friends, and colleagues, according to Matt Domenici, director of product management for online and mobile digital imaging at Adobe. These online apps also integrate tightly with our recently released Photoshop Express apps for iPad, iPhone, and Android devices, so customers can truly interact with their photos anywhere they happen to be, he adds.
While registering for a free Photoshop.com account is a requirement for storing photos online, creating and sharing galleries and albums, the Photoshop Express Editor no longer requires registration, which means the online editor is available to anyone who visits Photoshop.com. The Editor also now supports the ability to upload directly from a hard drive, apply edits, filters and effects, and save the results back to the hard drive, without ever replacing the original.
Photoshop Express galleries have a fast-loading new layout and design, featuring many customer-requested enhancements. The new gallery design makes taglines, descriptions, and comments more visible, making it easier for people viewing a gallery to add and review comments. Sharing is also easier with instant options for posting a gallery page to Facebook or Twitter. Visitors can also browse albums for the new single image presentation page where a new filmstrip viewing option and more comprehensive EXIF data display enrich the presentation.
The revised Organizer is faster and more streamlined, and also includes new slideshow functionality that's purportedly more intuitive and customizable. Now users can apply the new Midnight slideshow theme to an album and share a rich full-screen experience with friends, family, and colleagues. Additional presentation themes are available for purchase (North America only).
The Photoshop Express Uploader is a small client application that installs on the user's desktop and streamlines uploading and syncing photos between their hard drives and Photoshop.com. The Uploader handles JPEG, PSD, and a wide variety of Camera RAW formats. Using the Uploader, any of the Photoshop Express for mobile apps, or the syncing functionality in Adobe Photoshop Elements, users never have to worry about backing up or having access to their images online anywhere they have an Internet connection.
With the release of the redesigned Photoshop Express apps, the Photoshop.com website introduces updated site navigation, so customers have easier access to tutorials, product information, the online Photoshop Express tools, and their personal information, including their libraries, galleries, friends, and account information. Customers can even share other content on the site, such as tutorials they like, on Twitter and Facebook.
Adobe Photoshop Express Editor, Organizer, and Uploader apps are now available for free on Photoshop.com in English, German, and Japanese. Adobe Photoshop Express 1.3 for Android devices is available on the Android Marketplace.
