Photo editing is an important task of multimedia and Web development. If you cannot afford to buy a Photoshop or other image editing software, or you are away from your computer and unable to access your photo editing software, online photo-editing service is your answer.
Today, there are dozens of Web-based photo-editing services out there to help you tweak and edit your photos. After testing some of these online photo-editing services, I recommend either Picnik or Pixenate. Both of these photo-editing services are Web-based. All you need is a Web browser with Internet access. These photo-editing services are very easy to use and they provide many editing tools that allow you to fix underexposed photos, remove red-eye, or apply effects to your photos. The best of all, they are free.
Picnik has a clean and simple interface. You can upload a photo or import online photos from Flickr, Picasa, and others to Picnik. You can then use Picnik’s real-time online editing tools to crop, sharpen, adjust exposure, color, apply effects, and then share them with your friends. Picnik gives excellent results on the edited images without requiring you to know much at all about editing.
Pixenate is another quick and easy tool that allows you to design and edit your image online. Like Picnik, Pixenate has all basic editing features, Flickr integration and even an option to store images online.
