In some situations such as you are out going of your home computer, needing an easy image editor without learning curve and it can run online in your browser or professional software like Photoshop, CorelDraw… are too much expensive and complex… It’s time for you to try these online – easy to use – image editor services.
Sumo Paint is a full featured photo editing / painting application, which works right in your favorite web browser! The application can be used in Windows, Macintosh or Linux operating systems. The only requirement is the Flash Player (which usually comes preinstalled in any OS). Furthermore, the Sumo Paint website is a thriving online art community of over a 10 million unique users and over 180 000 registered members from over 200 countries.
Picnik Premium serviceThe online version of Sumo Paint has a look like Adobe Photoshop software and has many great features.
Another online image editor is Pixlr, Pixlr has 2 editor versions for you to choose: Pixlr Express and Pixlr Editor. While Pixlr Express is very easy to use, the Editor version can be a bit hard to understand if you are not used to this kind of photo editing software, however Pixlr has developed a Tutorial section to help you understand it, you can visit the Tutorial section by visitting: http://pixlr.com/wiki/tutorials.
With Pixlr Express you can start editing your images with most simple tools like: Crop, Resize, Rotate images… Pixlr Express also offer you some adjustment tools and photo effects, you can add images to Pixlr by URL uploading or upload from your computer.
At the first time using Pixlr Editor I thought maybe this is an online version of Adobe Photoshop with the same window position, menu structure and effect list. So this is an advantage of Pixlr Editor to help people who have ever using Photoshop can use this tool easily.
Foto Flexer is the world’s most advanced online digital photo editor. It performs advanced effects previously only available to professionals using expensive software. FotoFlexer was founded by Arbor Labs, a team of graduate students and alumni from the Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, University of California at Berkeley.
Foto Flexer can upload your images from nay sources: from your desktop, Facebook, Myspace, Flick…. and has a range of editor tools for you, you can watch a demo page of Foto Flexer at: http://fotoflexer.com/demos.php to find out what Foto Flexer can do. However, in my point of view, Foto Flexer is too simple because it doesn’t has a professional website design and powerful tools like Picnik or Sumo Paint but I still love it, it’ll be very effective for the simple job, and the service works fast, and free for using.
