Adobe Photoshop for iPad will get real layer support in the future

During the Photoshop World conference's keynote, Adobe has unveiled some details about the next generation Photoshop for iPad, that's being worked on as we speak. Despite the recent feature additions to the current version of Photoshop for iOS, that's still an 'Express' app, and for good reasons -- although quite robust, it's nowhere near as capable as the desktop software going by the same...

Adobe Photoshop Express for Android taken for a spin, leaves me a little unsatisfied

From the outset, a smartphone photo manipulation app is a fantastic idea. Thanks to the turtleneck mafia, awful-and-noisy-built-in-camera photography has become something far bigger than most of us expected -- who could've predicted that the iPhone would become the most popular camera on Flickr in under two years? But now, ladies and gentlemen, it 's the turn of the Android. With dozens of new...

Happy 20th birthday, Photoshop!

It's hard to picture life before Photoshop, but yes, some 20 years ago, Photoshop did not exist and photo manipulation was a matter of darkroom editing techniques and using complex sequences such as burn, dodge, fade, mask, which when used in Photoshop is a snap. Tomorrow is the 20th Anniversary of Photoshop, but the celebration is taking place around the world today. Now that Photoshop is...

If you're looking for a few filters, a bit of layer support, and a decent range of tools, Pixlr might be the one you want. You'll be familiar with its tools from using desktop apps like Photoshop and The Gimp, but it's rare to see so many advances options in a web app. Some of the Pixlr perks that...

GIMP 2.5.4 Ready for Download

Development toward the 2.6 release of GIMP continues, and devoted users can now head over to the FTP server and grab a copy of the new (and unstable) 2.5.4 release. Several UI annoyances have been fixed. Docks and toolboxes can now be easily recovered from an accidental close via the window menu. You can also lock your tabs to a dock to keep yourself from dragging them out by mistake, and...

Corners can be rounded from 1 to 10 pixels and customized...

Theft is Bad Karma: Stop Pirating Photoshop!

I understand that Photoshop is a great program. I'm willing to concede that there's really no comparable software for the professional user. What I just don't get is why the average user thinks 1) they need Photoshop and 2) they need to pirate it. A few years ago, no one came in and asked me "Can you put Photoshop on my computer?" Most users hadn't even heard of the program. Now the perception...

Photoshop Express gets Flickr support

The Photoshop Express public beta launched about six weeks ago and other than some early concerns about the ToS, we continue to be impressed with the service. Today, Adobe has added a number of new features to the service, including support for Flickr. At the conference call in March, we asked Adobe about their plans for integrating Photoshop Express with other web services and they assured us...

Flipping the Linux switch: Quick and easy photo management with F-Spot

Photo management software for Windows makes us weep. For most people, photo management consists of loading the software (and drivers) that came from the camera manufacturer. So you've got a Nikon camera, and the photo management software is really different from your significant other's Kodak software. It looks different. It acts different. It's easier to set up some ways, or more inflexible in...

Have it your way: 6 programs for editing images on the Mac

It turns out that Madonna had it wrong: instead of living in a material world, we are increasingly moving to a digital one. One arena in which that is particularly true is photography: digital cameras have slowly replaced traditional cameras, digital images replaced real prints, and digital manipulation has replaced traditional editing means. Today we're going to look at six programs for the Mac,...
