A Free Powerful Lightweight Image Editor That Is Portable

November 19, 2012

Toolwiz Pretty PhotoTo find a good FREE image editor is one thing, but to find one that will run from the stick (your flash drive) is another. One of my favorite all-round system maintenance utilities is Toolwiz Care. While visiting their site, I happened to notice that they also have a product called Toolwiz Pretty Photo.

What makes Toolwiz Pretty Photo unique from any of the other image editors I have experienced is two things. One it appears it does not rely on the NET framework to run and two it is available as a portable app. Granted, the portable version is a 75 to 76 MB download; however, I found it to be worth it. This program is loaded to the gills, which is no surprise from Toolwiz!

Toolwiz Pretty Photo

ToolWiz Pretty Photo is a free powerful lightweight image editor.  With just few clicks on this free tool, you can edit photos, create photo collage, and make them look the way you want them to be, and much prettier.  Yes, it is that simple.  ToolWiz Pretty Photo does not only come with 80+ professional image (art) filters and thousands of objects, but also supports frequently used functions, such as Resize, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Layers, Shadow, Frame and so on. Recently, it also made photo collage easier. With 97 collage patterns for your selection and DIY pattern designer, photo collage is never this simple before!

Add Pixlr Online Photo Editor to Your Google Drive

May 22, 2012

With the inception of Google Drive (Google’s new cloud storage and collaboration service), there are quite a few apps that you can set up that will work hand-in-hand with Google Drive.  One of my favorites is Pixlr.

Pixlr is an online photo editor that gives you the ability to work with photos (and graphics) inside your web browser (no software install is required). If you are already subscribed to Google Drive, you can add Pixlr from the Chrome Web Store. After you have this completed, you will be able to open images from Google Drive right into Pixlr.

An easy way to add apps (such as Pixlr) to Google Drive is to open up your Google Drive, click on the “Create” button, then click on “More”, then click on “Get More Apps”.  When you click on “Get More Apps”, you will be redirected to the Chrome Store where there is a wide (and growing) selection of Google Drive compatible apps.

An Advanced Online Image Editor That Is Easy

February 27, 2012

Just like the online file converters I recently featured, online image editors are everywhere, which makes it hard to decide which one to go with. Factor in that the learning curve to master an image editor is quite challenging that makes most people avoid them.  Well don’t…

Today, I want to show you an online image editor, called Fotoflexer, that to me is advanced (rich in features), but very easy (and fun) to use.

Fotoflexer

For an online editor, Fotoflexer has all of the bases covered. You can do everything from fixing your photo or image to adding effects, fonts, shapes, etc… You can even get crazy with Fotoflexer by applying morphing, distortion and doodling effects.

Fotoflexer

The best way to get a handle on using Fotoflexer is to visit the website and either upload a test photo or use a photo they provide.  A really cool feature (that I like) is that I can either save my finished product to my computer or I can save it to an online photo storage and sharing service (such as Picasa, Photobucket, MySpace, and others).  In my case, I use Picasa. To take advantage of the his feature, you must sign up for an account with Fotoflexer (which is FREE).

After using Fotoflexer, I can honestly say that for an online photo and image editing program, this one is a keeper.  Fotoflexer can do it all and most importantly, it is easy to use and understand.

PhotoFiltre 7 – An Image Editor with An Easy Learning Curve

January 12, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I do not have the patient or attention span to learn PhotoShop. Several years ago, as a result of my impatience and my learning deficit, I needed to find an image editing program that I could catch on quickly and get the job done. This is when I found PhotoFiltre; AND, to this day it is my editor program of choice. PhotoFiltre is no PhotoShop by any means, but let me tell you this program rocks; especially with this new release.

This week I learned that PhotoFiltre 7 was recently released and the good with this release is two things.

  1. PhotoFiltre 7 has been developed with the core components that is in the advanced commercial version (PhotoFiltre Studio), minus a few attributes.  PhotoFiltre 7 now supports layers with improvement to the filters.
  2. PhotoFiltre 7 is available as full install (with a setup file) or you can download the portable version which gives you the ability to carry PhotoFiltre on your flash drive.

PhotoFiltre 7

PhotoFiltre 7 is a complete image retouching program. It allows you to do simple or advanced adjustments to an image and apply a vast range of filters on it. It is simple and intuitive to use, and has an easy learning curve. The toolbar, giving you access to the standard filters with just a few clicks, gives PhotoFiltre 7 a robust look. PhotoFiltre 7 also has layer manager (with Alpha channel), advanced brushes, batch module and lot of other powerful tools.

There is quite a lineup of online image editors these days, but there is one I bet you have not tried and it is called iPiccy.  Out of the gate, iPiccy is unique in that a registration is not required.  On top of that iPiccy is fast, very easy to use and offers quite a selection of tools that will enable you to to quickly and easily edit, enhance, share and print all of your photos from any Internet browser.

iPiccy

iPiccy is currently in the beta stages of development; which means it is in the public testing stage and which means it will continue to improve.

iPiccy provides new, easy-to-use tools for modifying pictures, using advanced image processing. iPiccy offers the easiest user interface and workflow of any photo editing application, allowing users to easily pull images from any Web site or file folder. iPiccy includes an extensive variety of easy Web-based photo-editing tools such as Auto-fix, Rotate, Crop, Resize and Color adjustment and Sharpen – all in one place and in real-time. In addition, iPiccy can also be used to turn photos into creative masterpieces, with clever special effects like Liquify, painter, vignette, pencils, and many more. iPiccy.com works flawlessly in any Web browser and is compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux. And since iPiccy lives on the Web, it is constantly evolving as new image-editing technology is developed and the needs of the user base change.

iPiccy

There was one thing in iPiccy that I did not see and that was the ability to create an arrow. Usually this can be found under the tool to create a line. Maybe in a future version I will see this option.  Otherwise, this online editor is a great one in my book.

PhoXo – FREE and POWERFUL Image Editing Software

March 7, 2011

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

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.
