“A picture is worth a thousand words.”
I know this is a big cliche but I’ve always liked it.
I don’t have to remind why you should use images in your blog posts and how they impact your readers.
I’ve done some research about image editing services that are quality and easy to use, but won’t cost you a dime.
How great is that?!
If you belong to a group of modern internet users, then you’ll probably want your tools to be somewhere online.
I bring you 9 free tools to help you in editing your images whether you use them on Facebook, Twitter photo album or somewhere else.
This service can be used separately or as a part of Photobucket, and enables you to:
- edit your digital photos,
- apply filters,
- cutting photos,
- increase or reduce the dimensions of the image,
- add different effects and text.
But there is also retro Pixlr-o-matic that will give your images the retro effect.
Splashup allows you to edit multiple files at once, easy to use and works in real time.
Splashup works in all browsers, it’s integrated with all popular website for sharing images, and has its own format so you can store images in order to continue editing them later.
One of the more powerful tools for image editing, which allows editing from the basic things up to complex effects.
Phoenix will allow users to edit the image in the viewer in a very simple and affordable way.
4. Photoshop Express
Also one of the most popular tools for online image editing, but without those details that is available with the regular Photoshop.
Photoshop Express also gives you 2 GB of space where you can store your work.
Very simple with clear basic functions, Snipshot will satisfy your needs for editing web images, and I believe this will be very useful to all Web portal editors.
Snipshot offers a Firefox extension to make it easier and faster editing your photos.
6. Pic Resize
This free tool allows you to:
- add light to your images,
- change the contrast,
- add blur or text,
- add lets say Polaroid filter, or the possibility to cut or reduce your photos.
Another similar tool as PicResize that will be quite sufficient to have completed everything you need for photos, of course, for more complex things you will still have to find some additonal tools.
Would you like to edit pictures for free on the web?
You are in the right place because in addition to the before mentioned eight tools, Phixr serves exactly for that – just like everyone else.
All you need is in one place.
Gimp is a tool that most closely looks like Photoshop, and perhaps has the most possibilities.
Here, you will need some extra knowledge, because you can literally do anything.
If you decide for Gimp, I recommend to search for some tutorials on YouTube so you could easily manage.
