Adobe Photoshop Express
What do you guys think? Looks a little feature-thin to me...
I signed up, just to see what it was like.
One of the first things I noticed was that it gives you src code <img> but not
The terms are interesting to say the least. Look at :

Looks like a pretty standard agreement for an image sharing service. DeviantArt, Photobucket, Myspace, Facebook. They all have similar agreements.
Doesn't look standard at all to me. From what I've read none of those sites claim any right to use your images.
This is just a test bed as far as I know for a wider online presence.
I have heard that Adobe thinks web services is the way of the future and expect within 10 years all major applications to work via a webservice including Photoshop, Office (already started via google docs) etc.
Personally they can take my copy of Photoshop CS3 when they pry it from my cold .... as a side thought how ironic is it to have to fire up Adobe Dreamweaver in a browser window so you can make a website I hate the ideas some people come up with.
The web's gonna have to get a LOT faster and a LOT more reliable before I trust it with Photoshop. Also, there's nothing like paying several hundred bucks and holding a pretty box. That wouldn't be near as fun if we all had to pay for an internet service.

Note the comments from Adobe explaining that they will promptly clarify their usage rights.
Cool.... In my world, there is a push to get more applications to be delivered to the customer on a subscription basis over a browser or some similar interface sandbox. IMO, it just makes sense.... Thumbs up for Adobe for getting involved and putting money (R&D) into such a project.
Reminds me of the Dilbert comic. The manager is standing in the meeting room
"We need to decentralise to increase autonomy and get things done faster"
One year later
"We need to move to a hierarchical system to increase control and get things done faster"
