Photoshop Express comes to Windows Phone 8

Image via sonyxperiaz.co.ukPeople whose mobiles run Windows Phone 8 can finally get some high end image editing capabilities at their fingertips, as Adobe has launched the Photoshop Express app for Microsoft’s mobile operating system, according to Pocket-Lint.

The app is free to download and there are plenty of preloaded effects and tweaking tools that can be harnessed, to make picture really pop. It could be an especially appealing app for those who have splashed out on the Nokia Lumia 1020, since its 41 megapixel PureView camera will be enhanced by this third party suite.

The one caveat to using Photoshop Express, aside from requiring WP8, is that your handset must have at least 512MB of RAM. Even the affordable Lumia 520 from Nokia has this much memory onboard, so most people should be able to run it.

Of course, WP8 already has a host of photo editing apps on its download marketplace, so photography aficionados will need to decide whether or not they want to stick with the existing crop, or go for Adobe’s famous app. Whatever route you take, Windows Phone is shaping up to be a compelling OS for people who like to capture images and video.
