Adobe is offering to the public a free beta test of its Photoshop Express software. Included in the freebie is up to 2G of online storage. Users can then store, edit or use eye catching effects to modify their photographs. All of this online and is done through your browser. [Gee, this sounds like more cloud computing.] According to Adobe:
SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 27, 2008 — Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced Adobe Photoshop Express public beta, a free Rich Internet Application (RIA) available to anyone who wants to store, sort and show off digital photos with eye-catching effects. During the public beta period, Adobe will solicit Photoshop Express user feedback on product features and functionality, which will continue to evolve over time. As the newest addition to the Photoshop family line, Photoshop Express has taken much of Adobe’s best image editing technology and made it simple and accessible to a new online audience. Photoshop Express allows users to store up to 2 gigabytes of images online for free, make edits to their photos, and share them online in creative ways, including downloading and uploading photos from popular social networking sites like Facebook.
For all of you who have been waiting to join in on a beta program, this is your chance to play with new software all for free. 🙂
