Adobe Express 2.0 Hits Google Play, Brings Streamlined UI and Photo Filter Slider Controls

An updated version of Photoshop Express hit Google Play this morning, version 2.0, bringing a redone user interface as well as additional features. The app has been rebuilt from ground up and is completely compatible with Android 4.4. It’s good to see Adobe still loves Android.

Adobe focused on making the app easier to use, placing popular tools and features at the top of menus when editing photos, such as preselected filters, as well as adjustment settings for brightness, cropping, red eye detection, and the popular auto correct feature. 

Adobe’s latest image rendering engine is built into the Android version for the first time, which greatly improves performance of the app and will enable larger files to be handled while editing. All in all, it’s a pretty spiffy update to the app.

Here is the changelog.

What’s New

  • This version was rebuilt completely from the ground up for Android and is KitKat compatible. We have made every effort to fine-tune the app for Android. As an example, Android users will appreciate accessing and processing images saved on the SD card faster than before.
  • We’ve focused on making the app easy-to-use by bringing the most popular features to the top. ‘Looks’ (our word for filters), cropping, red eye reduction, and auto-correct are now all easy-to-discover.
  • Our more savvy users will appreciate the Corrections menu with slider controls to fine-tune exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, temperature, tint, etc.
  • Under the hood, this release is powered by Adobe’s latest image rendering engine, coming to Android for the first time. This engine greatly improves performance and enables handling of large file sizes.
  • It’s still free.

    I would prefer if Adobe would just bring back flash till they can put out the html5 that’s going to be so wondrous. I hate going to so many sights that are only flash supported. A lot of news sites and blogs only use flash. About 15% of the sites I use have switched to html, and those are large sites, smaller ones only use flash.

    With phones as powerful as they are now, I still don’t see why Google can’t incorporate flash in chrome mobile like chrome desktop. Are they really afraid of people getting free content that much like apple, and that is why they won’t?

      Flash still works, just not in Chrome browser. Which is unfortunate because that is my primary browser. I have to switch between Chrome and Dolphin.

        I’m using ART and getting the same force close.

    It’s not even optimized for tablets.

      Me too that’s what I use on the N5 and it’s swell. I’ll have to try this though

      Agreed. I was a Pixlr Express man until the 3rd time I tried Snapspeed. I guess 3rd time was the charm for me, it’s now my go to.
