Photoshop Express Photo Editor

Updated on December 14, 2014

Free Adobe Photoshop Express

Photoshop Express is a web based and free version of Photoshop. Photoshop is the name of a brand though some people think it is a generic term for photo editing. Sure it's a less featured version of the expensive Photoshop software. That said you won't miss many of the exotic features as this tool is targeted at mainstream consumers, not professionals. Photoshop Express is a free - all it requires is an easy registration.

Photoshop Express Features

Photoshop Express has some great features. Shown here in an original image, followed by pop color which turns the image to black and white. Use can use Pop Color to turn any photo into a black-and-white with a vivid splash of color. You decide exactly which part of the photo to highlight and you have full control over the Pop color and the color range. We finish up with a great example of the sketch feature which takes a photo and makes it look more like a sketch - and you have control over how much of a sketch effect you want to see.

Photoshop Express Features

Photoshop Express has basic editing, cropping, red-eye and other retouching tools. It also has the ability to add some stickers and decoration - but in general Photoshop Express offers less "fun" features than Ribbet or PicMonkey. Photoshop Express is a bit more serious than services like PicMonkey and Ribbet (but heck, their names alone show highlight their level of fun).

PicMonkey Photo Editor - Great Photo Editor - Photoshop Alternative

PicMonkey, a creation of several former Picnik engineers offers a simple and easy to use tool for editing and altering your images. Even if Picnik was still around, PicMonkey would be a great alternative!

The entirely Web-based editor is fast and effective, In the left-hand column you see all of your options. And that includes everything from basics likes cropping and rotating to a full array of air-brushing edits. In Picnik style (but not quite as Picnik like as Ribbet), you can add icons and text and throw a frame around a photo. Basic edits consist of crop, resize, rotate, as well as color tweaking and sharpening. There is also an auto adjust button much like the one that was among Picnik's top features. Obviously the clone (copy) feature is great too!

Photoshop Express is not only equipped with basic image editing tools like crop and rotate, but you may also apply quite a few impressive effects to your photographs like blur or that warm vintage look. You can also make color adjustments to your photographs by simply dragging your fingers across the screen. Once you are done editing the photograph, you may either save it your iPad's photo album or you can directly post it to your Facebook wall through the Photoshop Express app itself.

Ribbet Photo Editor - Another Great Photoshop Alternative

Ribbet is built on the same platform that made Google's Picnik great and is an easy to use yet powerful online photo editor. You can use Ribbet for collages, touch-ups and advanced photographic effects like curves and clone tools, fonts, frames, stickers, vampire effects, beards, and an entire pond full (yes, get ready to deal with some froggy puns) of effects. Like Picnik, there will be a free and a premium version. What's available in the free versus premium version will determine their long term success.

Citrify Photo Editor - Facial Touchups and Blemish Removal!

Citrify Photo Editor
Citrify Photo Editor

It's not like the world needs one more photo editor, but if one is going to be built at least make it a good one. Citrify is a great addition. The best feature is the ease of touching up photos. I took the above photo on the left (a Citrify default photo) and enhanced it to the image on the right in the first 4 minutes of using Citrify. No training. No research. I just uploaded the photo and used the out-of-the-box touch-up tools. Citrify does not have all the features of other photo editors - but for facial touchups with almost no training Citrify is awesome!

      Thanks for the tips on PhotoShop Express! My daughter uses PhotoShop, but I find that it's too complicated (and too expensive) from my basic photo editing needs.

      Thanks. I did not know there was a free version of PhotoShop. My old computer crashed with PhotoShop installed. After buying a new machine I'll have to wait awhile to purchase a new version. This helps.

      This is great. I was daunted by PS and this looks like a great way in. I'm sending link to my partners iPhone too after reading that section. Its great when someone with technical 'know what and know how' explains things clearly to a novice. Thanks!

      This is a very resourceful lens. I can see why your icon is a camera, you got a lot of lenses on photos. 5*.
