Adobe plans to change the terms of service for its newly-introduced Photoshop Express service, following a hail of complaints over a perceived copyright grab in the existing agreement.

As originally described, Adobe's terms of use said that while the company didn't claim to own any images users may have put through the service, it did make a claim for an extensive worldwide, royalty-free license for use of images in multiple formats.

Needless to say, Photoshop Express users are unhappy with this deal - they don't want to edit their images using the service only to see those images re-used in a raft of different media and products by Adobe.

Despite the wording of the license, the Photoshop Express team are reported to be dismayed, saying the license asks for more rights to other people's content than the team ever envisaged using.

Adobe product manager John Nack promises the company will issue new terms of service soon, citing a note from the Photoshop Express team.

"We've heard your concerns about the terms of service for Photoshop Express beta.  We reviewed the terms in context of your comments - and we agree that it currently implies things we would never do with the content.  Therefore, our legal team is making it a priority to post revised terms that are more appropriate for Photoshop Express users.  We will alert you once we have posted new terms."
