Online Photo Editors - Some Types

Online Photo Editor

Online photo editors are a web based technology that enables us to do photo editing on the internet. If you are away on vacation, and don't have access to a computer with digital photo manipulation software, you can now use the convenience of the internet to edit your images.

Online photo editors, though limited in functionality and features, are a powerful tool for picture editing. They provide the ability to resize the picture, rotate and optimize, control brightness, contrast control and perform color adjustments. Some of these online image editors also provide filters like blur and sharpness control. These free photo editors also work on conventional browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Firefox.
