Adobe Photoshop Express is a Flash-based image editing web and mobile application from Adobe used to directly edit photos on blogs and social networking sites, so that users do not have to download or upload images. Similar to Picnik, the application currently works with sites such as Facebook, Flickr, Picasa and Photobucket. [1]

In September 2011 the company also introduced Adobe Photoshop Express for Android[2] and iPhone. They allow editing pictures in the smartphone or tablet rather than online. In addition, the Windows 8 version of the Adobe Photoshop Express was also introduced in May 2013.[3]

Terms of use

In the early days of the beta test, the product's terms of use raised controversy, in that it claimed to retain an irrevocable license to use certain works submitted by end users in perpetuity.[4][5] At that time, Adobe held users of Photoshop Express to's general Terms of Use, which had not been drafted in contemplation of the sort of user-created content utilized in Photoshop Express.

Following user concerns and negative press, Adobe issued new, more specialized Terms of Use for the Photoshop Express product that superseded sections of the General Terms, and clarified many of these issues. Changes included making the license expressly revocable and indicating that Adobe's rights to use the content are solely for the operation of Photoshop Express itself.[6]
