Photoshop for Windows Mobile

Adobe may be the number one name in desktop graphics (and its Flash technology still rules Web video), but image editing is slowly but surely escaping the bounds of the traditional computer, and Adobe is working hard to create a presence in those new areas.

So today, while also announcing new versions of its consumer-level still and video image editors (Photoshop Elements 7 and Premier Elements 7), Adobe also revealed plans to release a beta of its first Windows Mobile application, with support for a limited number of handsets, next month.

The mobile app will work with Adobe's existing Web-based image editing and storage service, Photoshop Express, which is being rebranded as Photoshop.com. While a basic version with 5GB storage will remain available for free, regardless of whether you buy Elements or Premiere, Adobe will offer people who purchase either of the packages separately ($100 each) or the two as a $150 bundle, the option of upgrading to Photoshop.com Plus, with 20GB of storage, for $50 a year.

The idea is for all these products to integrate with each other. The Windows Mobile app won't have image-editing features per se, but it will let you organize and easily upload your camera phone creatons to Photoshop.com for sharing and editing. (In the next day or so we will be posting a roundup review of Web-based image editors, including the app formerly known as Photoshop Express).

At launch, the Photoshop.com Windows Mobile app will be available only for the Motorola Q9 Music and Q9 Global; Samsung's Blackjack I and II; and several members of the Treo 700 series.
However, Adobe says you'll be able to use Shozu to move images to Photoshop.com from an iPhone, BlackBerry Pearl, Motorola Razr, Nokia 5310, and Nokia 6301.
