Hoping to get a jump on Google and other competitors, Adobe Systems plans to release a hosted version of its popular Photoshop image-editing application within six months, the company's chief executive said Tuesday.
The online service is part of a larger move to introduce ad-supported online services to complement its existing products and broaden the company reach into the consumer market, Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen told CNET News.com.
Seems it will be a stripped down application, even more so than PS Elements. It could be a life saver for on-the-move design - and it WILL be free!
... is set to be free and marketed as an entry-level version of Adobe's more sophisticated image-editing tools...
I would welcome a stripped down app, I just don't need anything more than the basics. It's the same with Google Docs, it's a godsend for people who just want a barebones word processor.
Obviously these online apps are much worse than their offline competitors, but people don't need them to be that good any more because we got most of the WP and photo editing features we absolutely needed about ten years ago.
And them being free and online makes them into killer apps, they unchain you from having to use a particular computer, and free is obviously the best possible price point.
-- Just a guess, the meat of the program will reside on your HD or flash drive, downloaded just once.--
If that's the case then it's not hosted, it's just another photo editor which you can download.
