If the Techtopus wage theft suit proves anything, it’s that the philosophy that built the Valley is no more

In 2008, everyday folks learned that the top Wall Street banks were simply too big for the government to let them fail. In the Valley there was an overwhelming sense of smugness about our lack of protectionism. Here the young eat the old. We’d never ask for a government bail out. Everyone is subject to disruption. Indeed […]

Photoshop Express hits version 2.0 with redesign, KitKat compatibility

Photoshop Express

Simple interface gives you filters and level control in just a couple taps

Adobe has released a new version — now up to 2.0 — of its free Photoshop Express app with a new design and compatibility with Android 4.4. This latest version is “rebuilt completely from the ground up,” according to Adobe, and the interface certainly shows it. The layout is not at all unlike KitKat’s stock Gallery app, with easy tabs at the bottom to switch between editing modes and tools.

You can apply different Looks (filters), crop and rotate, go into more advanced level edits and correct red eye right from the main view. You of course have access to create automatic options on all levels or the entire photo, something Photoshop is known for offering.

Although it would seem like a perfect fit, Adobe has chosen not to make use of KitKat’s new Immersive Mode for editing photos — maybe this is on the drawing board for a future release. You can grab a download or update to the latest version of Photoshop Express at the Play Store link above and take your photography to the next level.
