Okay, so it isn't Photoshop, but Flickr's new online editing tools could be useful: it allows you to do basic image editing from within Flckr itself. The new features include color, exposure, resizing and  red-eye editing tools using a system designed by Picnick. To use it , you just click on edit photo button in the top toolbar from within your photos list in Flickr, and it loads the tools within the browser. Our first experience of the new features was a bit mixed; it refused to work in the Firefox browser, the editing page was slow to load and the editing tools were rather slow as well when it did eventually load. Presumably that's because there are a huge number of Flickr users trying them out right now, so we'll see how it works over the next few days as they iron out the first set of bugs. But if they get it working faster, we can see this being a very useful tool for the serious photographer; although it won't replace Photoshop, it could provide an easier way to quickly edit an image after you upload it.
