    Photoshop Express (Free) - Question

    Hi there
    Does Photoshop express have any facility for handling Camera RAW files. I'm looking at giving a basic Photoshop course (for absolute beginners) and it seems adobe have launched a great FREE (what's up with Adobe -- FREE STUFF !!!) app Photoshop Express which would give users the basic options to practice with before moving on to the full professional version.

    Does it also work with LOCAL files or do you have to do it all "In the Cloud" using an adobe id.

    Anybody tried this -- I don't want to download the app as I already have the full CS6 on my machine and this will screw it up. I'm away from home at the moment so I don't have access to a VM to test this on either otherwise I'd do the test myself.

    (Note I'm aware that you can't compare this version of Photoshop with the professional version - but it should be fabulous for people who are just beginning with photoshop - and may even be enough for a lot. I've used the full photoshop for YEARS and am still learning NEW thingsabout it).

    With respect to RAW files: I think the answer to your question Jimbo is no
    Adobe Photoshop Express now available for Windows 8 and RT | Windows Phone Central

    It states:
    "The one feature missing is RAW image file support. The RAW format is used by many and lacks the in-camera processing JPEG files have. It gives the photographer more control over the image by handling the processing manually. It's not a deal breaker and hopefully this will be a feature added with future updates or maybe as another add-on pack (hint, hint)"
    Local files are no problem. I was able the files from my local pictures library.
