Edit Your Images Online- Free!

By mark hine on May 24, 2012
There are many times when an image or photo could benefit from a little editing – cropping, rotation or just touching up red eye. Editor from pixlr.com [http://pixlr.com/editor/] is a great tool that mimics many of the high order features of robust applications like Photoshop® .

Editor features a generous toolset including clone stamp, spot healing, shape distortion, magic wand and lasso selection tools, a text tool and much more. Upload files from your computer, edit visually then download back to your computer.

An effective PowerPoint presentation, for example, can benefit from well cropped and edited images, leaving distracting backgrounds and extraneous material out to focus on the images’s subject. Images can also be created with Editor for inclusion in presentations and documents.

Some of the more Photoshop-esque features include the layers pane, navigation pane and the history pane. Save options include jpeg, png, tiff and the pxd format, pixlr’s layer-saving format.
