Adobe has announced that Photoshop Express is now available for Windows 8 devices, including Microsoft Surface. Previously, Photoshop Express had only been available for iOS and Android devices.
Photoshop Express for Windows 8 offers the following capabilities:
- Make basic photo enhancements such as crop, straighten, rotate, flip, or remove red-eye.
- Enjoy creative, one-touch filters that provide eye-catching effects — more than 15 to choose from!
- Let their photos shine with a one-tap correction that adjusts color, contrast, and brightness all at once.
- Use slider controls to enhance contrast, exposure, and white balance, or let the app auto-correct it for them.
- Upload their photos to Adobe Revel to sync them across their Windows 8 tablet, iPhone, and computer.
You can download Photoshop Express for Windows 8 here on the Windows Store.

Adobe just announced a release candidate for Camera Raw 8.1, which is now available in Adobe Labs. This is the first departure from Camera Raw 7.x for CS6 users. With the recent Adobe Photoshop CC changes taking place, CS6 customers will continue to get new updates for raw file support; however, the killer new features that are part of Camera Raw in Photoshop CC will not make it over to CS6 customers.
Camera Raw 8.1 includes support for HiDPI capable displays (e.g., MacBook Pro Retina) and offers support for the following cameras:
* denotes preliminary support
Remember, this is a release candidate, which means it has been pretty well tested and Adobe thinks it is ready for full release; however, it’s recommended that you keep production work to prior versions until the official release drops. Expect that to come soon though. Release candidates mean that the final versions are just around the corner.
While I’m aware this deal is only relevant to a small segment of readers, I wanted to make sure that those in live video production were aware that the TriCaster 455 is available for $9,995 through June 27. If you’ve been shopping for a production mixer, you know that the TriCaster 455 normally retails for $16,000, so this is ridiculous savings on a very popular mixer. (Note that the deal is for the TriCaster unit only and does not include the control surface or monitors.)
You can find the TriCaster 455 deal here at B&H Photo.
