Adobe Photoshop Express now lets you edit Google Photos on your phone

Bypass the Camera Roll by importing and editing photos from your Google account.

Adobe’s on-the-go photo-editing app Photoshop Express just added two incredibly useful new features: Google Photos integration and collages.

The Google Photos tie-in means you can import and export photos from Google’s app to Photoshop Express for quick editing and sharing. Photoshop Express already supports Adobe’s Creative Cloud, Dropbox, Facebook, and the iOS Camera Roll, so Google Photos is a welcome addition.

Now you can make collages, a popular feature in many photo-editing apps, in Photoshop Express. The new intelligent layout tool populate your images in a carousel of collage options in one tap so you can see what they’ll look like in a variety of formats. A style transfer automation tool takes the time out of editing your collage photos, although you can still manually edit each image in the collage by tapping and adjusting it.

The new features are now available in a Wednesday update available through the App Store.

Adobe also updated Lightroom for the web so shares are are a little richer: you can add header graphics, new sections, and add text and titles to describe each section. That helps you tell more visually meaningful stories to share with friends, family, or strangers. For more information on Adobe’s November releases, check out the company’s blog post.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
