Photoshop Express a fine, free tool for teachers and students

A further distillation of Photoshop Elements accessible via a web browser with Adobe's Air technology installed Flash support (thanks to reader corrections - this is an Adobe Flex application, not Air), Express is no GIMP, but it's free, available across platforms, and serves the needs of the MySpace set very well.

Adobe, Macromedia to square off in court

Rival software maker Adobe Systems is set to dump a bit of rain on Macromedia's parade Monday. While Macromedia executives tout one of the company's biggest product launches ever--Web design tools Dreamweaver MX--company lawyers will be in court for the beginning of a contentious patent suit against Adobe. Adobe filed the suit in August 2000, alleging that the user interface of Macromedia's Flash Web animation tool infringes on Adobe's patent for "tabbed palettes," a feature that allows users of design software to rearrange the work space on the PC screen. Macromedia responded with a countersuit soon after, charging that Adobe's Photoshop image-editing software and its GoLive Web design software infringe on two patents that Macromedia holds for editing tools. Adobe and Macromedia representatives confirmed that a jury trial for the original Adobe suit is scheduled to begin Monday in U.S. District Court in Wilmington, Del., the same venue currently playing host to the star-studded Hewlett-Packard trial. The Macromedia countersuit is expected to go before a jury shortly after the original case is decided. Adobe and Macromedia have emerged as contentious business competitors, with Adobe especially looking to cut into the commanding lead held by Macromedia's Dreamweaver in the market for professional Web design software. --David Becker, Special to ZDNet News
