Best Online Photo Editors


If you publish articles online, probably you also publish photos with your contents. Or, alternatively, you may also take an interest in publishing photos on social media and photo sharing sites. If you want to edit your photos, but don’t know how to use photo editing programs like Photoshop and GIMP, you can always take a help from photo editing websites. Some of the free online photo improvement tools are similar to photo editing smartphone apps, whereas some free online photo improvement tools have advanced photo editing interfaces.

For anyone who takes a photo, or publishes web contents, photo editing is an essential skill. There are many photo editing programs available. Some of the popular photos editing programs are Photoshop, GIMP, and Paint Shop. It is good for you if you have expertise on these photo editing programs. Nevertheless, if you don’t know how to use these programs, you don’t have to worry, there are many online photo editors.

Here are some free online photo editors:

BeFunky: For adding filters and photo effects. On BeFunky, you can apply saturation and exposure just by swiping a finger over the image, and also apply text overlay and frame. This app is available for Andriod and iOS devices. BeFunky is also available as a photo editing website.

Pinstamatic: For creating cool images with text, dates, and locations

Quozio: For creating images with quotes

Picmonkey: to create photos with amazing effects

Recitethis: For creating images with text

Pixlr: For simple, medium and advanced online photo editing, also available on Android and iPhone

FotoFlexer: For creating Pinterest-friendly images, has an option to edit images imported from social media For quick edit and fun filter

These photo editors are not only easy to use but also help you edit photos in few clicks. You don’t have to agree with me about these online photo editors being best, however, I believe these are great online photo editors.

Whether you are sharing photos on social media or using with your contents on niche content sites, you might notice that some sites have restrictions on the size of the photo you are sharing. One of the good things about these online photo editors is that your photo can be optimized for the web, which means you can create compressed image.

Even if you are allowed to share/upload photos of any size, you might be aware that large photo takes the time to upload especially if you are working on a slow connection. These online photo editors create web ready images.

    I use a free full featured editor called FastStone Image Viewer. It makes it easy to do any editing, but I mostly use it for resizing images, cropping them and making the file sizes substantially smaller. It is easy to use and it is free. The resizing thing is important because most images will originally be over 960 pixels in one dimension or the other, which isn’t optimum for people who access the article with a mobile. I invariably resize them so the largest dimension is no larger than 640, and that also saves of file size, so the article loads faster, even on slower systems.

      FastStone is a download editor and it is a full editor, though it doesn’t sound like it. It can brighten and darken images, change the image size, change the file size, gives the user the capability to annotate or add text and watermarks, duplicate, crop and just about anything else I could think of using an image editor for. Back when I was a computer technician, the products that I supported were scanners and the software that came with them. The software won numerous rewards, but it didn’t do half of what FastStone does, which is why I use FastStone. 🙂
