Don't have the budget for the latest full-featured version of Photoshop?
Adobe has taken the cue from the myriad of services online such as
Picnik and launched a free version of its Photoshop image editing software.
PhotoShop Express is a browser-based service (Flash 9 is required so many will have to upgrade to use the service) that gives those that want to manipulate images a resource to do so over the Web. Users must only register for an account but they will receive 2GB of free storage to store their cropped, rotated, tweaked and twirled images. Perhaps the best part however is that the solution has ties to social networking sites like Facebook and other image-sharing sites. There are apparently more premium features on the horizon including a printing service, more storage, support for audio and other media and the ability to work with file types other than .JPG's - which the service supports now.
