The online service is part of a larger move to introduce ad-supported online services to complement its existing products and broaden the company reach into the consumer market, Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen told CNET News.com.

Err... why would someone use this? People using photshop to work RAW files and other big size files will rather have a local desktop version than a networked one with all the roundtrips back and forth.

If all Adobe wants is to launch some little online image editing tool, which will probably be based on Macromedia assets such as flash/shockwave to deliver the interface and functionality, then simply call it Adobe Photo Gizmo but photoshop, that thing will never be.
