Try this easy and powerful online photo editing application…

I have tried and tested numerous online photo (graphic) editors and the one that I am finding that is tried, tested and true is iPiccy… This editor appears to have been around awhile, with my last review being back in 2011 when it was in beta. Back then iPiccy sported over 30 creative editing tools and now it sports over 110 creative editing tools. Since then iPiccy has matured quite nicely.

What I really like about this editor is that it runs very nicely in the browser and has an exhaustive list of editing tools that is normally found in some of the higher end software based editors that you would normally install on your computer. Give it a try and I think you will be impressed. iPiccy is FREE and registration is not required (unless to want to take advantage of photo layers and the collages).

PhoXo – FREE and POWERFUL Image Editing Software

I truly love software and get excited when I see a software developer put their heart and soul in an application, then turn around and offer it for FREE. I recently came across a FREE image editor that was a new one for me and it is good; really good!

There are tons of image editors out there now, with the most common one being PhotoShop. For most of my image editing needs I do not need PhotoShop, besides my short attention span will not let me learn PhotoShop (which has a steep learning curve).

The FREE image editor that I recently have developed a fondness for is called PhoXo, which the developer touts it as being a mini PhotoShop. I recently contacted the developer to let them know that they are really onto something with PhoXo and that it is my hope that they continue improving it. The developer indicated that PhoXo will continue to improve and that they are looking for input and suggestions. The install size for PhoXo is less than 4 MB’s and can be used on a flash drive as a portable app.


PhoXo features include layers, undo, over 50 special effects, batch processing, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools for selecting, crop, painting, retouching, measuring and navigation. Especially, you can easily add text effects to image, such as shadow text, ripple text, gradient color text etc. PhoXo web site provides a large number of resources, including step by step tutorials, thousands of free clip-art, frames, patterns, textures and shapes.

Digital Free-Hand Drawing Software (for FREE)

This past year I have seen numerous photo and graphic editors pop up from nowhere and most have been quite remarkable… If you are someone who has talent in the area of sketching, drawing or painting, then you will be interested in knowing that there is  “FREE” software package available, called “SmoothDraw”. SmoothDraw supports many kinds of brushes (pen, pencil, dry media, airbrush, bristle brush, image hose, etc.), retouch tools, layers, image adjustment, and many effects… According to the website SmoothDraw works great with tablets and Tablet PCs. I found it worked very well, using what limited talents I had, by just using the mouse.

The install appears to consume only 3.5 MBs of space; however, is dependent on .NET Framework 2.0, which is common on most of today’s systems. I personally found this app to be quite user friendly and could also serve some benefit to those who need something to enhance and touch up photos. SmoothDraw is a new one on me and appears to be quite a powerful application, considering its small size. I encourage you to click the screenshot below to get a good look at the clean interface of this application.

System Requirements
Win98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista

Recommend a tablet/stylus for drawing


Smooth Draw Sceenshot Sm

If you are a user of Universal Extractor, as I am, you can take the SmoothDraw install file (setup file) and extract it to any directory you desire.  Using this method, based on my testing, SmoothDraw can be made into a portable app (for your flash drive) and used on other computers that are supported by the .NET Framework 2.0.
