Tried a few edits and not really going to make my day anytime soon. Sure it would be cool to access your pics from different computers but the editing tools are like hatchets compared to the exacto knife of photoshop.<br><br>But I was about to load PS on my MBA. Maybe i will hold off.<br><br><br><br><br>
Here you see the entire interface. It has little to nothing to offer beyond the very basics. It's nice to have the option, but I really expected more from Adobe. You do get 2GB of space to share photos though.<br><br><img src="http://img.skitch.com/20080328-ey6abgu7dsqm6ygc785ky1qcyj.jpg" alt="ps_express"/><br><br>

okay, i just fiddled with the test drive. one of the things i've heard complained about the most from my students is that they find it really hard to use the various web-based photo editing tools to resize their photos. they can crop, but many of these tools don't have resize tools available to take a 3,000 pixel wide photo and make it 600 pixels wide instead and then reduce the jpeg quality to reduce file size. i don't notice either option in the photoshop online tool. but i did only fiddle for about 45 seconds and the "Email photo" option was disabled for test drivers.<br><br>
