As more and more people are getting bitten by the selfie and travel bug, photography apps and websites are gaining popularity. There are quite a few image editing sites that operate directly in your browser and are quick and easy to use. All you need to do is upload images directly from your phone or computer and start editing. And the best part, these websites are absolutely free to use.
Here are 5 such free websites which you can use to edit pictures online:
Fotor is my favorite website to edit pictures online. It has a friendly and an easy-to-use interface. Other than photo-shopping tools, Fotor offers modules putting together collages, greeting cards and HDR images. It has introduced a new module called Beauty to improve people portraits for those of you who are addicted to selfies. Despite a few flaws here and there, Fotor is an excellent website concerning its functionality and performance. And it offers various entertaining opportunities like Lens Fla re, B+W, Color, Splash, Clip Art and Text which make your photos interesting and engaging.
This is another free website which you can easily use to edit your pictures online. PicMonkey is a user-friendly, online photo editor that allows you to choose the output quality of your image. PicMonkey setting options offer additional controls that allow a person to customize their photo edits. There are pros and cons to every free software. One con is that before you move to the next edit, you need to finish the one you are currently working on. One great pro is that you have re-do and un-do options. There are also many new artistic elements. Just watch out for the flashing ads and the embedded premium services.
This is probably the most popular website for online editing of images (at least in my circles). With many full-featured imaging options available, Pixlr gives you the flexibility to decide the depth to which you would want to explore your editing tasks. Its online photo editing features are similar to Photoshop and Pixelmator. Pixlr requires no prior knowledge of photo editing. It has tools that offer basic changes such as: exposure, sharpening, cropping and even a few special effects like tilt-shift and filter enhancement.
Ribbet is reminiscent to Picnik, the online editing platform acquired by Google. Ribbet operates on the Picnik platform and has the same friendly look and consumer-oriented interface. It has an Auto Fix control feature that does a nice job at fixing exposure. It also has various tools for cropping a photo to a particular size or services like a Twitter picture, Facebook picture, etc. Special effects such as stickers, text, frames, and touch-ups can be used easily to your liking. With its large number of fun editing tools, free filters and fast performance, this one is great for getting creative.
BeFunky is a popular website for its built-in collage maker that allows you to add some images in either your patterns or preset options available. It even allows you to construct a Facebook cover for your timeline. It has a broad range of beautiful elements that help you boost the quality of your images. It also has an intuitive interface and good performance that make this website just plain fun to use.
