Fast and free Photoshop Express app gets an update

PSx.jpg

I’m a big fan of Adobe’s Photoshop Express as an online service.

Basically it’s a free online image organizer / storage box and a collection of robust image editing tools (Similar to Flickr and Picasa).

But where Adobe’s tried to differentiate Photoshop Express from the competition is by also releasing a free and powerful Photoshop Express iOS image capture and editing app that ties into the Photoshop Express online service.

  • New Camera workflow for rapid in-app photo-taking
  • In-App Purchase of Adobe Camera Pack: Reduce Noise, Self Timer, and Auto Review
  • Full Retina Display Support
  • Multi-Tasking Support

Nice to see some of these features bundled in, and optional — buy ’em if you need ’em — otherwise you’ve still got access to a good set of image capture, editing and sharing tools, for free.

FX Photo Studio HD ‘develops’

fx_logo.jpgSorry, couldn’t resist the pun.

Earlier today the much awaited update to FX Photo Studio HD was released in the Apple app store.

FX Photo Studio HD is an enhanced and iPad optimized version of FX Photo Studio (for iPhone and iPod Touch) which I’d written about previously.

A few of the features added in this update that I really like are:

  • The ability to save your image edits and effect modifications as presets which you can then share with other FX Photo Studio HD users. This also means you can import their cool presets and apply them to your photos.
  • Social Network sharing now includes Tumblr – which many people use as a photoblog
  • Printing from the iPad – a potentially cool feature that I’ve yet to try — I haven’t had the update long enough to get near my home printer :smileyhappy:

First Contest – Exploring Workflow

Next project. Flooring. #mostly365

I’m in the middle of a two part series on my digital photography and iPad Darkroom workflow over at the Future Shop tech blog. While I think I have a pretty good digital workflow that encompasses my iPad, I’m thinking that there are probably other very excellent workflow ideas out there.

So, to entice some feedback and learn from you a bit, I thought I’d offer out a few prizes from our fine friends at MacPhun, a few download codes to Photo Pal and FX Photo Studio HD.

How to enter:

  1. Leave a comment below,  on this post, describing your digital darkroom photo workflow on your iPad. Or if you don’t have one yet, describe how you think you’d use a ditital darkroom on your iPad.
  2. Note which app you would like to win, should your entry be selected (iPhone, iPad, Doesn’t matter)
  3. Winners will be selected based on entirely arbitrary criteria I’ve not established yet 🙂 Make your submission  interesting and / or informative and you’ll have a better chance at collecting one of these sweet apps.

Important Stuff:

  1. Contest ends Thursday February 17th at Midnight MDT. Winners will be selected and contacted via email on Friday February 18th.
