This was a little event a few days ago: Adobe launched its first beta version of the online PhotoShop under the name of Photoshop Express. As it was easy to predict, it’s not as simple as marketing would like you to believe and you cannot replace one by the other as most of the reviews hereafter will show you:
- Les Numériques (en français): would better use Picasa to share the images prepared with Photoshop Express, and would want to see Raw files management, curves and histograms, and masks.
- Ars Technica (in English): it is rahter a cross between iPhoto and Adobe Bridge, but they love the basic features and (including color correction).
- Baekdal.com (in English) : disappointed; This is not an image editor, by far – just a fun way to apply a few corrections/effects. Woudl rather recommend Splashup, he feels is superior.
- Photojojo (in English): This is certainly not Photoshop but it does very well what it offers (basic image edition/correction).
- LifeHacker: Not the Full PS Package, but Good Web-Based Editing
- Pixinfo.com (in Hungarian): Honest! I didn’t understand what they think about it…
To notice: Photoshop Express is free, limited to 2GB of online storage (easy to reach) and in English only for now.
