Free Adobe Photoshop Express Launches Today

Sign up for Photoshop Express now! Adobe is providing some of the power and features of Photoshop CS3 in a free online application. In addition there are sharing and community tools ala Flickr. Cool stuff...
Multimedia powerhouse Adobe Systems released on Thursday a public beta of Photoshop Express, which provides online tools for photos. Express, a free hosted application, lets users store up to two gigabytes of online photos at no cost and share them in a variety of ways, including uploading and downloading from social-networking sites like Facebook. It is accessible from any recent browser with a Flash Player 9 plug-in.

Adobe Vice President Doug Mack described Photoshop Express as "a convenient, single destination where you can store, edit and share photos" regardless of where you are.

Photos can be edited nondestructively, which means the original file is left intact, and they can be shared anywhere via a Web browser. Editing capabilities include removing blemishes and red-eye, converting to black and white, cropping, and resizing, among other things.

Pop Color is a tool that lets the user select an object in the image, lessen the background colors, and swap colors in the object so it stands out. With sketch effects, photos can look more like drawings, and a distort feature lets the user stretch and exaggerate faces and objects. You can also select from a sample of photos that already have visual effects applied, and those effects will be applied to your photos. Read More...

Awesome! Can you describe the architecture??? Obviously it's Flex-based. What else should we know? The Dolf Zone readership is highly educated (with the exception of WTF???) and extremely technical.

I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you.
