Perhaps stung by criticisms that Photoshop has bloated into an 800-pound gorilla with a price only highly paid professionals like Scott Kelby can afford, Adobe says theyâ€™re now developing a lighter version of the imaging software.
This was revealed today at Photoshop World 2007 in Las Vegas by John Loiacono, senior vice president of the Creative Solutions Business Unit at Adobe.
Photoshop Express is expected to be a light monkey with much of the gorilla functionalities of its big brother. And by saying that Adobe will make it â€œaccessible to the masses,â€ we expect a really affordable price (perhaps as affordable as free?).
Photoshop Express will be offered as an online consumer-focused image editing solution following the release of its online video editor, Premiere Express, a free online video editor for creating mash-ups and remixes.
Adobe also unveiled a new Photoshop logo at Photoshop World.
