    I love these collections! I wish I would’ve seen this post 4 days ago because I had a co-worker asking for this exact thing. This post is about a number of online image creation and other “creativity” tools. The site recommends that you use an up to date browser **IE 6 not allowed… EVER 🙂 **. Most of these tools are based on the principle that you (the user) are looking for a way to 1) edit images or create images, 2) you want to store them online or share them to your Facebook, blog, etc., and 3) that you don’t want to have to know a ton about image editors (though some can get technical if you do).
    I’ve used a couple of these before like Photoshop Express, Kuler, Youtube editor, and Picnik. My experience with the image editors (Photosohp Express and Picnik) left me with kind of a “bleh” feeling, but a bit impressed at the same time. These programs are great for people who do not have access to anything other than Gimp or paint (both of which are not very good in my opinion, but have great capabilities in the right hands). I use Photoshop CS 4/5 so it was a bit difficult to go to the limited functionality of these applications. Now Kuler is an entirely different story. I use this on a daily basis. This is an application that lets you mix and match colors based upon a base color and the relationships that others have with it (triad, complimentary, analogous, monochromatic, etc.). Kuler will give you the hex, rgb, cmyk, and others so that you can use that color for web, print, whatever. It is really a great tool!
