I am a fan of Adobe Photoshop, the powerful image-editing software that graphic designers love.But I find myself using it less often than I used to. The main reason is that I find I often don’t need all the firepower it has to offer.
Software publishers have often produced free or inexpensive “lite” editions.So, it appears you neither get to see nor really communicate instantly with your matches during the “free” weekend.For that, you need to subscribe to e Harmony for fees ranging from $59.95 (one month) to $251.40 (year).If you mention this site, we’ll give a 10% rebate back from Paypal after you place your order.We have all seen the TV commercials for e Harmony, an online matchmaking service, with psychologist Dr. He touts the free personality profile offered on his website that matches you to potential mates based on 29 key dimensions of compatibility.It’s something we are sensitive to because we are watching folks like Google do it in different categories, and we want to make sure that we are there before they are, in areas of our franchises,” Chizen said. I’ve often wondered why the editors have focused pretty much exclusively on the rich-text angle, when I’m pretty sure coders maintaining client sites who switch to the “source code” view in FCKeditor would love to see a similar “widget” that would handle tag insight and tag completion.
now that things are fast enough to do anything clientside and distributed, adobe/yahoo/microsoft/google are shoving ‘hey , run stuff on our servers’ down our throats i guess they think people are too dumb to download GIMP? or maybe they just yearn for the days of the 486 I think Adobe makes a big challenge for itself, because if they intend to make fully functional version of Photoshop, they force themselves to have Flash Player which can handle the Layers, Filters, Masks, Huge Images and all stuff which makes original Photoshop so cool and heavyweight application.
Now, it seems, Adobe’s plan is to use the web for a lite edition and continue using the desktop for the full package.
It makes sense from the user’s perspective, as the web is an ideal, low-barrier, platform for trying out an app.
Like Adobe Remix, the hosted Photoshop service is set to be free and marketed as an entry-level version of Adobe’s more sophisticated image-editing tools, including Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.
Chizen envisions revenue from the Photoshop service coming from online advertising.
With 12 million members, surely your match might be among them.
