There are many free options for online photo editing, without having to download a program. Which ones are the best? It depends on what you need an image editor to do, and how many features it has. You may want something as simple as cropping and adding text, or something as advanced as converting JPEGs to vector art. Here are some of the best online programs.
1. Sumo Paint
Sumo Paint offers many extensive features, making it a favorite among free editing programs for online images. It includes layers and swatches, along with an image navigator and toolbar. Ink tools and brushes offer many textures and shapes for images like those offered at Storyblocks. You may drag and drop pictures you have stored in your Sumo Paint account, but you do not need to register to use the other services.
2. Photoshop Express
Adobe offers the Photoshop Express online image editing program, although it actually does not look like the original Photoshop. The interface is easy to use and covers all the basics for graphics. Rather than offering you a slider for adjustments to balance, saturation and other tweaks, Photoshop Express displays your changes in increments, which allows you to pick your favorite from the choices. This program also offers tools like distortion, sketching and tinting of photos stored in raster format on your computer.
A Storyblocks favorite, Canva is a great editing program that allows you to create anything from business cards to book covers and infographics to posters. In need of inspiration? They also have a great Design School that offers tutorials, blogs and teaching materials.
