Adobe Systems on Wednesday announced the pending release of an update to its Photoshop Express Web-based service for image editing. The update is expected to go live at 9:01 PM Pacific Time (12:01 AM Eastern Time).
Photoshop Express leverages Web 2.0 technologies like Adobe's own Flash software to provide users with an online service for store, sort, edit and show off digital photos. It's compatible with Safari, Firefox and other Web browsers. Adobe notes that more than 60,000 Web albums have been created using Photoshop Express during the first month of public operation. Users receive 2GB of online storage for free.
The enhancements to Photoshop Express include the ability to access to photos through the popular Flickr service. You can upload or download photos into Photoshop Express, edit and add effects then send them back to Flickr.
A new "Save As" feature has been added. It allows you to save multiple versions of an image. An embeddable player can now be used to post slideshows to Facebook MySpace and other social networking Web sites.
