Photoshop.com Hosts Videos up to 2GB in Size (Via Lifehacker)
"It's too late to make much of an impact on our call for the best video-sharing sites, but today online photo editor Photoshop.com announced that they're now allowing users to upload and share videos up to 2GB in size.
Unfortunately Adobe hasn't done much to make its video sharing tool stand out. For one, you can't currently edit videos at all, which seems to us like the only reason you might consider uploading your videos to Photoshop.com in the first place. You also can't embed videos, unless I'm missing something. The 2GB file size seems decent, but you're actually limited to 2GB of space on your entire Photoshop.com free account, so one big video upload and you're done. (Note: You can only upload videos up to 200MB in size via the web interface. For larger videos, you'll need to download their Adobe Air Uploader—which I couldn't even find, even after digging around the site and checking their support. Update: Here's the answer.)
In short, then: It's cool to see Photoshop join the video sharing world, and editing would be a great feature if it were there, but they're going to have to step it up if they want to attract anyone to use it."
