10 Best Free Online Photo Editing Sites
Modern cameras can make digital photography seem very easy, and even the most basic models will often produce crisp, clear photos.
We generally use Adobe Photoshop or other graphics applications to make some photo effects or photo editing. But what if some of you dont have Adobe Photoshop or any other applications and you want to do photo editing?
If your finances won't stretch that, though, don't worry, there are some excellent free tools around.
We've found 10 of the very best free photo editing apps, and whether you're looking for comprehensive editing power, ease of use, arty effects or just a quick way to spice up a photo before posting it on Facebook, there's something for you here.
Photoshop Express is a companion to Photoshop.com, your online photo sharing, editing, and hosting resource. Create a free Photoshop.com account to upload and store 2GB of photos and videos online.
With Photoshop Express, it's easy to improve your photos. Choose from a variety of one-touch effects, or simply drag your finger across the screen to crop, rotate, or adjust color. Add artistic filters like Soft Focus or Sketch. And never fear: You can undo and redo changes until you get just the look you want—a copy of your original file is always saved.
Pixlr includes Pixlr Editor (for the advanced user; it’s the pretty standard “Photoshoppy” treatment), Pixlr Express (for those seeking a more efficient interface), and Pixlr-o-matic (this one’s more playful and Instagram-like). Pixlr (and its apps) are free.
LunaPic has a unique take on online photo editing. While they offer most of the tools and effects you will need to edit your photos such as crop, rotate, black and white, sepia and color adjustments, LunaPic also gives you a wide variety of animations like snowfall, reflecting and transitions that you can apply to your photo. These animations add a whole new level to your photos and they are not available in any of the other online photo editing services we reviewed.
The interface for LunaPic is fairly straightforward. The layout is what makes it a little difficult to work with. There is a lot going with ads and examples, especially on the home page. All the movement, along with colorful backgrounds and fonts, make the layout less aesthetically pleasing and more challenging to work with than other online photo editing services.
FotoFlexer’s advanced image settings arecomparable to Adobe PhotoShop or CorelDraw. The site will appeal to photo enthusiasts that like to make quick, easy, and fun changes to their pictures. First off, the Interface is very user friendly – even 13 year olds can use it, which is the age you must be to use FotoFlexer. The website includes an “easy start” section where you can practice your editing techniques before you upload and edit your own photos. This is good for people that have never used an online photo editor. You can also grab a photo from the Web by entering the photo’s URL, or upload a picture from your computer.
Resize your photo, sharpen it or rotate your photo. Several filters and effects are available to enhance your photo: Red Eye Removal, Sepia, Enhance, Sharpen and Polaroid Effect. You can also add Text and Glitter text to your photos and images.
It was built around three ideas: make advanced editing accessible to everyone (in terms of cost and device requirements), remove borders between programs (support all existing file formats instead of inventing a new format) and make designers less dependent on their software (if it suddenly stops working, you should still have a chance to use your files somehow).It has an excellent support for PSD and Sketch files. It can be used by anybody for free and has been visited by more than 2.5 millions of people, who spent 120 000 hours using it..
