Adobe has revised the terms and conditions for the recently launched Photoshop Express beta, following criticism from users. In Adobe’s own words, “The original terms of service implied things Adobe would never do with the content within Photoshop Express.” Now Adobe has retained only those limited rights that allow them to operate the Photoshop Express service. The revised terms of service will take effect on April 10th.
Adobe has revised the terms of service for the Photoshop Express beta—https://www.photoshop.com/express/pxterms.html. Revisions were made in context of user feedback. The original terms of service implied things Adobe would never do with the content within Photoshop Express. Thus, revisions were made to clarify our intent:
• Adobe’s Rights—Adobe has retained only those limited rights that allow us to operate the service and to enable you to do all the things the service offers. If you decide to terminate your Photoshop Express account, Adobe’s rights also will be terminated. Adobe doesn’t claim ownership of your content and won’t sell your images.
• Shared Content—Adobe clearly states the rights you’re granting other users when you choose to publicly share Your Content.
The terms of service will not take effect until April 10th, in order to give you time to review and choose to continue using the Photoshop Express beta under these new terms.
Thank you for your feedback on Photoshop Express beta. We value your input and support in improving the service for all users.
