Top Web Picture Editors

Digital cameras are common nowadays and have also reduced their prices making it easier to have on. Gone were the days when you have to buy film and have them developed after use. One great thing about digital pictures is that you can easily preview it in your digital camera as well as edit the pictures you've taken.

Picture editing can be done using photo editors either free or for a price. Here I've collected some web tools for editing your picture online,for free or at most free.

1. Picnik - from their site: "Picnik makes your photos fabulous with easy to use yet powerful editing tools. Tweak to your heart's content, then get creative with oodles of effects, fonts, shapes, and frames." If you already use Flickr for your photos, you're only a click away from taking a Picnik.

2. Splashup- Splashup "is a powerful editing tool and photo manager. With all the features professionals use and novices want, it's easy to use, works in real-time, and allows you to edit many images at once." You'd wonder how something this extensive could be free - and it all runs within the browser.

3. FotoFlexer - FotoFlexer describes itself as "the world's most advanced online image editor." Using it, you can edit photos from Photobucket, MySpace, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, and more.

4. Pixlr - "Pixlr is a free online photo editor; jump in and start: edit, adjust, filter. It's just what you imagine!" Alexa says it's the "fastest growing photo editor online." If these resources are starting to look similar to your eye, remember you don't have to use all of them - just pick the one that works best for your needs.

5. flauntR- flauntR is a suite that includes the ability to edit images, add effects, add text, and print the results on everything from mugs to posters. You might be overwhelmed with the options here, but... isn't that better than being underwhelmed?

6. Photoshop Express- Adobe's Photoshop was really the first image editor of its kind to herald in the age of digital photography, though it was designed for professionals and its endless options could be daunting (and bank- breakingly expensive) for the layman. Now, is on the Web to help that very same layman -- for free or plus levels of membership -- edit, store, and share his photos. Lots of helpful tutorials promise to guide the casual user through editing pickles.

7. PiZap-- PiZap's tagline is "fun with photos made easy." It's another flavor of photo editor/storage center that, like flauntR, allows you to print the results to mugs, bags, and t-shirts. PiZap invites developers to check out its API for more personalization options (which is usually a good thing).

8. Aviary- Aviary lets you: "edit images, create mind-blowing effects, design logos, find colors, collaborate, and more. All you need is a Web browser." This particular brand looks to be the one to beat, as they have several different tools in development.

9. DrPic-- DrPic says it's "the easiest free online picture editor" and that it has "processed over five million pictures."

10. Cameroid -- Cameroid lets you "take crazy (or not) snaps with your webcam straight from your browser." I featured this one in a live video a while ago, and it certainly deserves to be mentioned again. If you're looking for something else to do with your webcam, give it a cameroid.

There you go... the list is not absolute though I might have missed some others. Feel free to comment about those I missed.
