Adobe Updates 'Photoshop Express' with Controversial New Design, Additional Filters

by

Adobe has updated its popular Adobe Photoshop Express app for iOS to version 3.0, bringing a newly streamlined design, as well as new features such as over 20 additional filters, a corrective auto-fix feature that automatically adjusts photo attributes, and full integration with cloud photo syncing service Adobe Revel.

On-the-go photo editing was never so fun, fast, and cool. Touch your way to better-looking pictures with automatic fixes and filters. Get your pictures to pop! And after sharing, you’ll be the talk of your friends.

The updated app is not necessarily going over well with users, however, as the new version currently has only a 2-star rating in the App Store and a number of reviewers are complaining the loss of more advanced features that disappeared as part of the move to a more streamlined design.

Adobe Photoshop Express is a free download for the iPad. [Direct Link]

They're complaining about lack of features. Since iOS7 adds features, and public reaction to iOS7 is already old news--and very positive outside of the minor gripes any change will bring--I wouldn't worry :)

As I've said in other threads (mainly FCP X), I don't mind the companies streamlining their interfacing or making them easier, it's the loss of features that bugs me. While I don't use many of these apps that lose functionality personally, I work with people who do and make make their living with those apps.

Example: I'm an IT guy at a middle school. We have a cart of original iPads. Sometimes, a teacher asks for an app to be on the iPads. When I check, it requires a camera or iOS 6+, which the original iPads don't have. It gets worse when an app originally worked on them, but gets updated and needs iOS 6. So I have to explain to the teacher that it can't get installed. Which means the teacher either has to find another app that works, or try to schedule the cart of iPad 2s we have, which is almost always booked.

Well, this is kind of frustrating.

I was up at Adobe in San Francisco a few months ago. I spent a few hours in a focus group--where I was the only consumer--being very detailed about their iOS Photoshop apps.

Every. Single. Thing. I told them was ignored. The new app version is a downgrade in every way! Obviously I wasn't the only person whose input they considered but seriously--how is the new app "better" in any way? They made the interface more like Instagram...oooh...

Is it just me or is sharpening gone? What about the handy button that let you flip between original and edited photos? (like the \ key does in Lightroom)

Dammit Adobe :mad:

Me neither!
But I wonder if the fact that iOS 7 is design by Apple will affect people's judgement?
I've been seeing it in these forums.
