    They say a Picture speaks more than a thousand words. Pictures are wonderful to behold. I am sometimes amazed by the way some pictures are crafted.

    I am very much aware of the popular Adobe photoshop and its set of features. Although I don’t use it, I have watched some of my buddies use this software to make pretty cool images. As for the remaining three, I have not been used and will check them out.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome post.

    • Hello Ikechi,
      Ofcourse the photoshop image editing software is so nice, from photos I see which my friends have edited on photoshop, with beautiful and unimaginable, effects. But what else can you do when you don’t have photoshop arround you? I guess trying these tools will sure help.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Hi Basheer, and good to meet you at Larry’s blog 🙂

    Having used Photoshop for years now, I usually don’t like using anything else. But sometimes when you don’t have Photoshop, such online software’s are very handy.

    I’ve just about heard about the Online photo editor from this list and it works pretty good, though never tried it the way I use Photoshop, but it does seem to have a lot of similar features. I would be checking out the rest too – no harm keeping them saved for a rainy day!

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week, both of you 🙂

    • Hello Ma’am Herleena,

      Thanks for stoping by.

  9. Hi Larry and Basheer,

    I love blogs with a cleaner look and your blog is one of those.

    We have a wide range of editors online. I am impressed with the 4 listed editors. I used each one of them and found iPiccy and sumopaint more easy to handle. I have tried that online PhotoShop before but it works slow on Mozilla but great on other browsers for me. I have an editor on my computer which I use to edit some pics which is Pixlr.

    Nice post, bookmarked the above stated favs of mine. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
    Rohan Chaubey.

    • Hello Rohan,
      It’s good to see you here, and thanks for the compliment, but I had to make the blog more simpler and I had to change my theme, I hope my blog’s new look looks great too? 🙂
      I’m so glad you found some of these tools to be great, I don’t use a mozila browser though, so I never knew that the tool was slow on the browser, anyway, thanks for introducing pixler to us, it’s a nice tool to.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  10. I have to bookmark this one because I for one have not used Photoshop but I want to learn how to use it. You have even given some other options which I plan to take a look at and then make an informed decisions. As it was stated above, a picture can say so much and is definitely powerful as it relates to the story we are trying to convey on our blogs.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hello Nate,
      This tools are wonderful photo editors, and frequent access to this tools will give you an idea of what the photoshop software is all about. Yes! Every one knows that pictures speak much more than texts.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Oh,thanks for this Article, actually,this is great,but i think the best is the Offline Photoshop ,cuz at least ,it will save money 🙂

    • Hi Lerwher,
      Sure the offline photoshop remains the best, but in a situation where you are not able to access it mayble you’ve uninstalled it from your PC what do you do?
      Just find any of these online tools, then I’m sure it will work for you.
      Thanks for stopping by, and do have a wonderful day ahead.

  12. Hey Basheer and Larry,

    Great post here on photo editing software. I used photoshop in the past, or least tried to but for me it was quite challenging. I have used a couple of others in the past which gave me just what I needed. This is definitely a great reference for all of those who want to edit their photos! Thanks for sharing and you both have a good one!
