Tuesday To-Do - Online Photo Editing

Have you tried out the new online editor by Photoshop? It's called Photoshop Express and I tested it out about a month ago, but never really needed to keep using it. However it has come in very handy now that I am travelling and have no access to the program on this computer. My initial views are that it is not very intuitive or user friendly, but that if you have some knowledge of photoshop, and/or are willing to play around you can get quite good results. I was able to go from this

to this in a matter of minutes

heading into the gully

I lightened the photo slightly, pumped up the saturation, and applied a soft focus filter. Other things you can do: change the white balance, sharpen, crop, rotate, tint, change to black and white and the list goes on. To be able to use the service you need to sign up, and you have 2 Gigs of space free on the site. They have recently added the capability to transfer your photos from Flickr, Facebook, Photobucket and Picasa to work on, and then back again. Or simply upload your photos from your computer and then transfer them over once you're done editing.
Give it a try, it's the perfect solution to photo editing on the road!

Great edit! I set up an account for PS Express but haven't spent much time playing with it.
