Adobe Launches Free Online Version Of PhotoShop

Adobe, the king of photo manipulation software has decided to offer it's own free online version of Photoshop, to be known as Photoshop Express. Aimed at the common folk who just want to take some red eye out or add a little something to their photo, Express is also a move to keep people thinking about Photoshop. There are a number of free tools out there like Google's Picasa, iPhoto, and picnic cutting into would be Photoshop purchasers. Express not only allows for photo manipulation but offers online storage of 2 MB and an uploading tool that allows you to post your masterpieces to social networking sites like Facebook. Unfortunately the site is only available to users in the United States at the moment, but I'll monitor from time to time and let you know when it opens up elsewhere. New York Times article here.
