    Web-based Adobe Photoshop Express - Performance


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    The time has come for us to test the performance of Adobe Photoshop Express. As always, we need to upload an image to work with. For the purpose of this article I have picked the American supermodel Marissa Miller (one of her older photos, 2004, by photographer Mike Owen and courtesy of Zuma Press). For her latest galleries, head over to Sports Illustrated, but I am getting ahead of myself here.

    Therefore, we will consider the above image as our source. First, we have zooming functions. We can focus on specific body parts, zoom in, and then, in the bottom left corner, the zoomed section becomes highlighted, but we also have a view of the whole image. Check it out!

    You may want to apply some tricky effects, such as playing around with various overall tints. It is worthwhile to point out that when you want to apply effects or tune touchups, Photoshop Express gives you a few variations to choose from, as you can see below. That way you just glance over them and pick the one that you prefer. You can always undo the last move or even restore the original image.

    Some of the key features that Photoshop Express brings to the table are auto-correct, red-eye removal, tint, black & white, and pop color. Personally, I consider these the most phenomenal functions. You may wonder why exactly black and white impressed me. I was sort of blown away to find out that there is more than one B&W variation for a particular image. And yes, you can clearly see the difference.

    I wasn’t expecting so much detail on a specific feature. I thought that B&W would give me a routine grayscale conversion and be done with it. It is rather cool. I would like to point out an interesting fact regarding the undo feature. Interestingly, each undo action can be previewed in a thumbnail view so that you know the last task that your image went through. This way you know whether it’s worth it to undo.

    Additionally, I love the pop color function. It is so well engineered that I bet it turns out to be one of the most used features. You can have lots of fun playing around with that. Color pop basically means replacing particular colors over the entire image, but this is done with various shades and automatic “intelligent” color detection.

    I have also used pop color in the following examples. As you can see, I have replaced the color of the environment as well as the color of her outfit.

    Adobe Photoshop Express requires Flash Player 9, but you can get it from here. It is very responsive and works quite well. It works without flaws in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. On Opera you need to bypass the notifications regarding how the information submitted won’t be encrypted through the HTTPS protocol and how you really shouldn’t do that. Other than that, it works well, since Opera supports Flash 9.
