Nothing is worse than trying to upload an image to a social media account or some other program, only to find that it’s too big, or that you’ve got something in the background that you really wish you could crop out. Fortunately, you don’t need to spend a fortune on photo editing software to make these small changes anymore. In fact, some of the online editing tools available do a pretty good job to clear up unwanted blemishes, reduce red eye, and crop to your desired size.
Of course, no free online photo editing tools are going to give you all of the options you get from a paid software or service, but if you only need the basics, there are a variety of options to choose from.
Found at www.picmonkey.com, this versatile online photo editing tool supplies a number of services and options for the photographer on the go. Not only does this program allow you to crop, resize, and add text to your image, but it also allows for color and saturation adjustment, as well as supplying users with an auto option to automatically touch up images in a way that Pic Monkey deems more aesthetically pleasing.
For additional funds users of the Pic Monkey services can explore other options, stickers, styles, themes, and frames, but even for a free user there is plenty here to keep busy with.
Similar to Pic Monkey, www.Ipiccy.com supplies users with the option to upload images with a single click of the mouse, reduce or increase size, sharpen and soften an image, make color fixes, and add a few professional touch ups for free.
