Picnik vs Adobe Express

Yesterday's big hubbaloo was the announcement of Adobe's new web based, low cal version of Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Express.
Of course, being the gurl I am, I set up an account, uploaded a few photos and gave it a whirl.
Yes, you can also connect to your existing, on-line photo streams (Flickr, Photobucket, Picasa), but I couldn't get it to work with Picasa Web Albums. (maybe just a launch problem).

The good:
  • the ability to see a whole bunch of versions of a particular change, i.e. black and white - you can vew a few flavours of black and white.
  • the ability to control sharpness
  • the nice touchup ability
The not as good:
  • limited effects (Picnik has wicked effects)
  • no border creation
I'm sticking with Picnik. Sure, Adobe's thrown in space, but space is the last thing I need right now, what with photos scattered around the internets like breadcrumbs. Picnik is faster, and lets me do more with less.

Side note: I downloaded the Mac version of Photoshop last night. I've got 30 days to decide if it's something I'm really going to pick up or not. I fell onto Joey Lawrence's site. I might be convinced. His photography is stunning.
