Online Image Editing: Any Good Ones Out There?

Looking for a free online image editing program? Check out Picnik, recently reviewed by Solution Watch.

Picnik is an online photo editing program, completely powered by Flash, and includes a notable abundance of helpful attributes within its simplistic core. Grabbing images from either your computer, your Flickr account, a desired website, Yahoo! search, or even your web cam (if you have it conveniently installed), are just of the few accommodating features Picnik delivers to its users. Oh, by the way, it’s free.

I have a resource listing of Free Photos for Your Blog and covered a lot about WordPress Plugins for Images, Photographs, and Graphics which included adding image and photo editors to your WordPress blog, but I haven’t found much on free online image editing programs for your blog photos.

Have you found any good online image editing programs that you can’t live without?

    Lorelle, I just discovered full feed RSS in my reader for your site. THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!!!!!

    I’ll now move your feed to the must-read subfolder and read all your posts, instead of just skimming the headlines.

    (Little nervous to post this, in case I’m alerting you to an unintentional change in your blog. This change to full RSS is the ultimate improvement.)

    I’ve used Piknic a few times and it has taken care of my needs (mainly resizing and such). For more substantial editing, I use Photoshop on my desktop.

    Piknic is definitely high-end and it’s great for effects (round borders! yayy!), but for quick editing while writing a post(resizing, cropping etc) I use pixer. It’s lighter and quicker.

    While not an online image editor, I am looking into Gimp Portable as a free image editor.
    It is the first version of Gimp that does not seem to cause incompatibility with my computer and you can install it to a USB drive and take it with you. Seems like the perfect solution.
    I still have to learn the screwy user interface. It looks very promising since I am used to the power of Photoshop.

    Snipshot: a Firefox extension — might come in handy for some

  7. Posted March 26, 2007 at 9:03 pm | Permalink has a strong feature set but is still pretty clunky. Good potential but not yet ready for prime time. I do use Snipshot’s website rather than the extension; it’s quick and fast, but transload would be nice.

    As for GIMP Portable, I use that at work because I can’t install anything else. The learning curve on the GIMP is extremely high, though – I have lots of PSP experience and some PS experience, but I can barely do anything in the GIMP.
