Desktop-based applications are not king anymore. In recent days, nearly all desktop based-applications have their replacement available in the internet, which mean, we only need a web browser to use them. A good thing come from web-based applications is that most of them are available for free. All we need is just an internet connection.
If you often work with some images and need to edit them, it’s not required anymore to install Photoshop or other desktop-based photo editor. There are the number of online photo editors that you can use for free. Even Photoshop it self offers us an online version to allow us work with images for free
I’ve rounded up 8 online photo editors that can be used for free.
1. Photoshop Online Tools
As mentioned, the famous paid photo editor Photoshop offers a free version to allows us work with images for free. The tool is available on the internet features some basic but useful tools. No sign in required to use the Photoshop Online Tools. The free image editor currently only available for JPEG, JPG and JPE images with 16 megapixels maximum resolution
Pixlr is highly similar to Photoshop. The photo editor is basically a desktop-based application too. But it also offer a free web-based app to give a chance for everyone to edit their images via web browser. The online version of Pixlr is little bit better than Photoshop as it has more tools. There is also a menu bar contains controls for adjustments, filters, transformations and more . The only minor may be is the square ad banner that we have to see on the top right corner
This free online tool comes with an easy-to-use interface to make it easy for everyone with poor photo editing skill get the most out of it. The app is aimed for consumer oriented. PicMonkey also comes with the number of instant effects similar to Instagram. You can also add text ahead of your photo if you want. The bad side of this online photo editor are the two ad banners at the bottom and and right side of the page, making its space be cramped
With this free tool you can add some changes over your photos like cutting, resizing, adjust the exposure and more. You can edit your photos from any source, including Dropbox and Google Drive. The tool also offers a pro version for more advanced features
In order you can also do more things with BeFunky aside of editing photos. The tool also offers you a Designer tool to enable you create your own invitations, menu books, posters and even infographics.
If you have been long enough with online photo editor then you must be know Picnik, on free online image editor that has acquired by Google but eventually been ended by the internet giant. Ribbet is built on the Picnik core so it’s unsurprising to see its interface extremely similar to the previous Picnik
Just like its predecessor, Ribbet comes with some simple features. With this tool you can crop, roate, sharpen, resize, adjust exposure and more over your photos. There is also pro version to enable you get more features from Ribbet
6. Sumo Paint
Sumo Paint comes with its complex features similar to desktop version of Photoshop. If you are a former old Photoshop, you must be familiar with the Sumo Paint interface. In order to access more features and free your self from ad, you can register to the pro member since its free version only offer a cramped screen to make it less comfort to work
Honestly, this is not the best online app you can use to edit your photos. But, if you want to try something different, there no sin to try this one. With this simple online app you can also add some changes on your photos
Last but not least. There is also a free online photo editor called FotoFlexer. This online app comes with some simple features to enable you edit your photos for ease. You can add some effects, add some animations and of course do basic things like cutting, resizing and rotating.
