Photoshop Express… ROCKS!

I wake up 30 mins ago and the first thing that I do every morning is looking MXNA and download my emails.

Reading MXNA posts, I see Photoshop Express from Ryan Stewart blog… Adobe release it this night, oh my god, I must try it!

So I go to the official link I register myself and I start to work with Photoshop Express.
This version of Photoshop is made with Flex and it’s amazing! I love so much how is clear and simple use this RIA.
Adobe done a great work also with instruments and with manage of images, you can create personal album, send the photo to a friend via mail, put own photos on Picasa or Facebook (I love that!).

Please take a look at this RIA, it’s so interesting and I’m sure that Adobe adds new functionalities and they’ll grow up this project so much!

Flex 3 and AIR 1.0, future is NOW

Sign this date in your calendar, today guys are out Flex 3 and AIR 1.0

In the last years Adobe made an amazing work on those technologies and it could be a big pleasure start work on them.
Lots of us use Flex  3 since Beta in labs and we love it, because finally we have a true development software and with last release we increase the power of this technolgy.

Air, it’s my favourite software, I love it, it’s so simple and so powerful and has a lots of functionalities that help us to create fantastic and complex desktop application.

BRIO Beta: web meeting service

Adobe release a new BETA in labs.adobe.com called BRIO that is codename of new version of Acrobat Connect (ex Breeze).
I’m working with it now, there are many alert when you try to upload files or in other featuers BUT…
… what a great UI!

It’s more easy to use, main functions are available like icons and it’s so fast!

The most impressive features you could see when you share your desktop, in fact you have a “widget” to chat with others users, you can see other users in your room and you have a little panel control to manage.
Very cool!

Now you can test it and create your room for FREE!

So go to BRIO page and test it man!
