Adobe Photoshop provides users with all the professional tools that they need for editing photos, and with Adobe Photoshop Express, you can access many of the tools of the full program without taking up as much space on your computer.

Also known as Adobe Photoshop Express for Windows 10, this program will work on any computer that has an updated version running Windows 10. It also works on computers running older versions of Windows RT and Windows 8. It lets you edit images that you took on your own, pictures your loved ones set you and even photos you find online. You'll need to save each image before using it.

Though Adobe Photoshop Express doesn't come loaded with the tools and features found on the full program, it comes with all the tools that most photo enthusiasts need daily. One of the best tools is its Auto Fix. When you load a picture in your viewer, you can click this button and let the program automatically adjust the shadows, brightness and exposure of that picture. This saves you time and lets you adjust your images without using dozens of different tools.

Other functions let you make some basic changes to your photos. The resizing tool lets you change the size of that image while saving a copy of the original, and the cropping tool lets you cut out the backdrop or other people from the photo. Though the software comes with default settings, you can also make your own custom settings for using on thousands of images.

Many users love that Adobe Photoshop Express comes with tools that they can use right away. While the full version requires some trial and error, this smaller version lets you make instant edits without searching through dozens of features. A red eye removal tool gets rid of red eyes in your pictures, a white balance tool lets you adjust the balance and a contrast tool helps you increase or decrease the contrast in a photo.

With 20 filters included, this program lets you see and experiment with some of the best that the full program has to offer. Save your edited photos to your own computer, or share those images on social networking sites. If you have a registered Adobe ID, you can even get some free tools that work with the software. Though Adobe Photoshop Express won't replace a full version of Photoshop, it comes loaded with useful tools and features.
