Technology has advanced significantly over the years. Most software we use now has a cloud-based doppelganger. Some are good, and some are bad. But the good news? Online tools for editing your photos are amazing compared to older software-based programs. I’d even go so far as to say that they offer almost the same functionality.
Fantastic imagery can be a huge help for budding photographers and businesses. Sometimes we don’t get the perfect shot. Maybe we forgot to adjust the white balance properly, used the wrong lens or didn’t get the frame. Whatever the reason, everyone has to edit photos.
What is the best thing about online photo editing? There is no need to install any heavy software. You don’t need any software to get your image perfect. These are some of my favorite browsers (which we will be discussing later in this article).
- Pixlr editor
- Fotor photo editor
- Picmonkey editor
These tools can be used for basic editing, not full-fat editing. Photoshop is still the best choice for advanced layer operations or removing images. Why wouldn’t you want an easy and quick online solution to all your other tasks?
Most people will edit photos online to create engaging adverts for their businesses. Some of the tools we use to create graphics offline can slow down our workflow and make it difficult to post articles on blogs or write engaging social media posts.
Crello is here to help. Crello features a layered system that allows you to stack layers of text and imagery. The sheer number of templates available for immediate use was one of my favorite features.
Log in to the website, and you’re good to go! Many built-in settings allow you to modify images the way that you like.
The platform also allows you to search for large amounts of imagery. It is a simple workflow that makes it easy to create meaningful graphics without the need for complicated software.
Crello can help you with your marketing needs. The business model is different from other products that I have looked at. Instead of focusing on tools costing more, you can purchase assets directly through the platform. This allows you to mix and match items that work or create your graphics.
Pros –Searchable stock resources to help you create stunning graphics for your marketing campaigns.
Cons If you’re looking for more advanced image editing, it may be worth considering other platforms.
Pixlr editor is next on the list. The UX/UI is designed to make photoshop easy for beginners. Even basic layer manipulation can be done!
Pixlr has all the tools to make your imagery look great, including red-eye reduction, spot healing, and sharpening and blur tools.
Pixlr’s user interface is extremely intuitive. Most basic operations can be done with one click. Pixlr allows you to rotate, invert, change hues or saturation, and many other operations. Once you’re done, you can store your work in a private library to be available for future reference.
Pros: It offers a wide range of tools and filters that can be applied to images. It’s also easy and fun to use. Pixlr is easy to use for those who are familiar with Photoshop.
Cons: Pixlr is a bit complicated for beginners and may require some background knowledge in image editing.
