Another online application for your images!

Adobe is now offering a free online version of its popular digital image editing software Photoshop.

Photoshop Express is not meant to replicate all the features and power of Photoshop. It’s more like a Web-based version of Photoshop Elements, Adobe’s consumer software package. Express is still a test or beta program and has some rough areas to show for it. But it offers useful, exclusive features that draw on the experience of its elder Photoshop. And it is free! You also get 2 GB of online storage to share and catalog your images, and the customizable interface is fun to play with!

Express works entirely within a browser — no download is required — and all you need to run it is the latest version of Adobe Flash. You can use Express in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.

Here are some specifics various photo editing features:

  • Crop & Rotate–Turn it, straighten it, crop out the background.
  • Auto Correct–Automatic, one-click, optimal lighting and contrast adjustment.
  • Exposure–Change the brightness of the photo.
  • Red-Eye Removal–Removes red eyes caused by some camera flashes.
  • Touchup–Remove scratches and other imperfections.
  • Saturation–Ramp up the colors to blinding brightness, dampen them down to black and white, or anywhere in between.
  • White Balance–Ever notice how people look different inside an office with the ugly fluorescent tubes, as opposed to outside on a bright sunny day? Adjust the white balance and you change the type of lighting in the photo.
  • Highlight–The brightest parts of a photo are the highlights. This control lets you brighten or darken just the brightest part of the photo, without affecting the darker parts (we call those the shadows).
  • Fill Light–If you take a shot facing into the sun, your subject can end up too dark due to the camera’s automatic exposure adjustment. Fill Light brightens the dark area without overbrightening the background.
  • Sharpen–It’s like putting in your contacts. Suddenly everything comes more into focus.
  • Soft Focus–It’s like taking your contacts out. Soft Focus creates a subtle blur for artistic effect.
  • Hue–This one changes all the colors in a photo at once.
  • Black & White–Control how the colors are converted when you change a photo to black and white.
  • Tint–Imagine instead of black and white, you want red and white, or pale brown and white for that old Western look.
  • Sketch–Makes any photo look like you drew it yourself.
  • Distort–Stretch, twist, bulge specific areas of your photos.
