pixlr.com Online Image Editor
Easily edit you images in your web browser...
People often ask me what software is best for editing photos and other images. Of course, the answer I always give is "that really depends on your requirements".
It is very important for presentation, and the image of your business, to make sure that your images are presented well on your web site, and in print. Some of the most common mistakes people make are:
- Stretching images out of proportion
- Resizing images to a size that is larger than the original
- Not properly 'compressing' the file to make it small enough for use on the web
There are of course ways to get around these problems, and many forms of free software available to help you in this process. Photoshop™ is of course the most well known image editing software. But their are many free alternatives that will do everything you need.
A recent addition to the mix is 'online software', which allows you to use your browser to edit your images. Other 'online software' can do all sorts of things, including writing and editing spreadsheets and documents.
Photoshop™ has an online version, which is free to use, and very powerful. It does however run fairly slowly, and is not very easy to use for some people. A simple, easy to use alternative that loads very quickly is 'Pixlr.com Editor'. If you need to edit a few images, and don't have the necessary software, this is an easy option you can use on any computer connected to the internet.
