I attempted to open a 23 mb photo with Photoshop Express and it wouldn't open it claiming it can't edit photos > 50 mb in size.

What kind of file is it? When you are talking about '23 MB', you are probably talking about the file size on disk. That could be compressed, however, like JPEG or TIFF with LZW compression. Photoshop Express will look at the size of the uncompressed image.

As per my understanding, Photoshop Express doesnot have any limits on file size. Can you share the screenshot of the message as well as the image you used?

This most likely due to insufficient system memory (RAM) on the mobile device.
