CNET News Video: Photoshop Express in action

2:59 /

From the Max 2007 conference in Chicago: see a demo of Photoshop Express, as some sample photos are manipulated using the powerful Web app's online tools.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> -- here you see a gallery, I saved a bunch of photos, uploaded a bunch of photos to the Web site, storing them on Adobe, and now we edit those photos. Come into our Photoshop Express in the Editor, and I'll start simple and get a little more complex. I would say start with this image and I'll do a one-button fix we call Auto Correct. And you'll see that on a series of thumbnails I can choose -- and I'm rerendering, every time I scroll over a thumbnail I'm rerendering in Flash. So the JPEG has been [Inaudible] -- [ Applause ] >> Loaded into flash -- I'll pick one I like down there. And then I'll go into another edit. And I'll say -- Saturation, then I'll go to White Balance. Again, you'll see a series of thumbnails, and I can pick which one I like. It's a cloudy day when we took this photo, so I'll choose that one -- so you can see that really quickly I was able to change the photo from that to that. Much better. So let's try a couple other things, show you some of the other tools. This one, you can see this photo that it's a boy, needs to be rotated, it's got red eye problems, probably needs to be cropped. Maybe a little vibrance and saturation. So I can do all those things very quickly. So the first thing I'll do is I'll rotate it. And then I can crop it. Now I can do red eye removal. And then I'll add a little color to him. So I'll do Vibrance and maybe a little Saturation just to give him a little more color. And again, you can see the difference between the original and what I just did. That took about 30 seconds. ^M00:01:50 [ Applause ] ^M00:01:55 >> So now let's do something really interesting. So again, a red eye problem with this. Let's start, actually, with Saturation and Vibrance. So add a little color to him. And again, a little saturation, a little more color so he's not so [Inaudible] and then do red eye removal. And we'll do blemish removal. So, see, the boy's got a scar on his face. Well, I can take that scar off -- >> Group speaking: Wow! [ Applause ] >> -- [Inaudible] when I resize that I can adjust the dimension. And I can also choose where I want the skin to replace it. Now -- [Inaudible] I want to do, I can undo. So if I want to put things back, I can just do Undo. The scar comes back. What's interesting is that you'll see that I can get a timeline, too. So I can go anywhere in that series. Here's the first. Here's the last one. ^M00:02:54 [ Applause ]
