Adobe issues a news release today alerting us to new functionality in Photoshop Express. They’ve added a “Save As” button and an embeddable player.
The new embeddable player will allow users to post their Photoshop Express slideshows to sites such as Facebook, Myspace, blogs and more.
“We’re overwhelmed by the positive response to the Photoshop Express beta and all the people who are actively editing and showing off their photos,” said Doug Mack, vice president of Consumer and Hosted Solutions at Adobe. “Photoshop Express will continue to evolve over time as we listen to user feedback and build a complete hosted solution that gives people the right balance of performance, convenience and that ‘wow-factor’ that makes their photos stand out from the rest.”
You can try the beta free at http://www.photoshop.com/express.
UPDATE: Adobe PR just sent me the following statement:
“As you know, we were preparing updates to the Photoshop Express beta on
May 7th that added significant new functionality to the product.
However, prior to going live, we discovered a bug that requires a fix.
We’re committed to delivering a quality experience with Photoshop
Express and don’t want to send out an update that isn’t ready for prime
time. We’re working on a quick resolution. Stay tuned – we’ll have an
exact time frame on when you can expect these new Photoshop Express

The new features will not go live until May 7 at 9:01PM PT.
The latest news release from Adobe indicates that the bug fix is done and Photoshop Express is back in business.
“We’re happy to report we have successfully fixed the bug that slightly
delayed our newest feature update for the Photoshop Express beta. New
updates are now publicly available. We appreciate your patience as we
focus on delivering a quality experience for our users. The Photoshop
Express beta community helped inform many of these new features, and we
look forward to continued feedback as the application evolves.”
