Web-Based Photo Editors: Fast, Fun, and Mostly Free

It may seem odd but using a web-based photo editor is sometimes perferable to firing up Photoshop or some other computer software based photo editor. These little gems are easy to use, fast, and come in a variety of configurations.
.
Some of the programs are surprisingly full-featured, while others do really simple tasks such as cropping your images.
.
Now, without further delay, here is a small sampling:
.
Photoshop.com - A good mix of special effects, editing, and all-around good freebie. Even if you haven’t used Photoshop before, this web-based program is very easy to use and straightforward. You don’t even need a manual to use it!

.
Splashup.com - The main page says, “Jump right in,” and this is a very suiting description. This program loads pretty quickly, and there are a great deal of effects, filters, and tools to use. It even has layering, pixel-level control, and a more simple version for those who don’t need all th bells and whistles called Splashup Light. Good deal!

Picnik.com - Editing photo images isn’t always a picnic, but if you use this program, it can be. This is a simple to use program that has basic features to edit, crop, re-size, rotate, adjust colors, and add minor special effects. It uses a tab system that clearly displays all the functions and incorporates one-click ease in using the features.

Aviary.com - What can we say, except that this program really flies. This is another extremely user-friendly photo editor that is geared towards simplicity and speed of use. You click buttons that correspond to different editing actions. This is your basic plain-Jane photo editor.

Snipshot.com - This program brings extremely basic photo editing features for those who aren’t familiar with editing software. The learning curve is virtually zero and you can hit the ground running the first time you use it. The one downside is that you actually have to pay to use these basic features.

Easycropper.com - The guys who made this program have a sense of humor, so it gets a spot here. They state, ” It’s a free tool, so use it at your own risk. Then again, you’re just cropping images so what’s the worst that could happen?” Click once, enter your dimensions, hit enter, and you’re done. Only one thing though…
