Edit photos online

With innovations in multimedia, editing photos online is very much in vogue. Image editing software is ideal for this process, but for aspiring amateurs, this is not the best option because they are expensive to purchase. There are many free options available online that one can use to edit photos. The most powerful software in this category is definitely Photoshop, but that requires an online registration which is quite tedious. There are other image editors too which have an ergonomic interface and are very easy to use, like Sumo Paint application, Pixlr, Splashup and Resizeimage.

Buying Image editing software is often very expensive and can be prohibitive for amateur photographers. Below is a list of websites where you can edit images free of charge.

Photoshop Online

Photoshop is one of the most popular and powerful image editing programs out there. The good news is that you can now your edit your pictures on its website. Basic features of the software - such as crop, distort, select, apply filters - are included.

Note: The application is cumbersome and requires an online registration from the user.

Sumo is ergonomic, easy to use, and is feature-rich. The Sumo Paint application is quite attractive.

Pixlr is as powerful as Sumo and the range of features is as complete. The interface is streamlined and user-friendly: a good compromise between simplicity and performance!

This online service is not as complete as Pixlr but easier to use.
