Day 3: Ultimate Blog Challenge – Photoshop Express App
If you are an avid iPhone, iPod, iPad or Android user, you’ll appreciate this Photoshop Express application By Adobe Systems Incorporated. Maybe down the line it will be available for the BlackBerry and soon to be released BlackBerry Playbook. *wishful thinking, fingers crossed* Photoshop Express is an application that allows you to edit photos and images directly from any compatible device.
Adobe Photoshop Express allows you to crop, rotate or change orientation and add special effects to gain the look you are trying to achieve. You can also share or upload photos to photoshop.com allowing you to sync information in between your device and online account. Once you have edited your image you can go a step further and share it any and everywhere online.
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.2 or later. This App is currently FREE however it has a built in app purchase camera pack which includes reduce noise, self timer, and auto review for $3.99. The application is currently available in both the Apple Marketplace and Android Marketplace.
Keep in mind that if you are a designer and use the full Photoshop Creative Suite Version for PC or MAC you can’t do everything the full program does with the express version. However, it serves its purpose when needing a quick edit before posting to your blog, Facebook, or any other social networking platform. It’s meant to be a quick and convenient resource at your fingertips.
I had the opportunity to play with this app on my sister’s iPhone4. I just cut a few inches off of my hair. Here’s the “new look” debut. I was able to manipulate the image after taking it today with the camera phone thanks to Photoshop Express. These are just a few photo edits you can do, there are many options available.
