The launch of Adobe Photoshop Express has been much anticipated. We are seeing the move of a large software company going from desktop to Web for a major application.
As Erick Schonfeld points out “Photoshop Express is by no means just Photoshop ported onto the web.”
I am a big fan of Picnik and for awhile was using it quite regularly, so I wanted to see how they compared.
It seems like Photoshop Express is pretty limited and seems very much focused on taking images, putting them online, and doing little touch-ups. One of the things that I am always doing is taking a picture and adding text and shapes to it, and this isn’t available, so I kinda don’t know when I would use this other than for simple cropping and resizing.
The interface is sleek and Flash-y but somehow doesn’t feel as nice as Picnik to me…. I don’t know why.
View Source has some fun though:
- Smart developers always View Source.
- This application was built using Adobe Flex, an open source framework
- for building rich Internet applications that get delivered via the
- Flash Player or to desktops via Adobe AIR.
