  1. I am a photo editor, I work only in Photoshop.


    This is a very good tool when working in ubuntu (fucking gimp!). I used phixr.com.

    p.s. First two link of post is broken. It only at me?

  2. Designing is an art of beauty of websites and the designer is always in the search of new, unique and pretty designs and the tools to edit and predict them in a smart way. So these are very useful and effective for the designers. Thanks!

  3. All are awesome, useful and handy to use. Thanks Pradeep to share day by day all the new needs of bloggers and developers.

  4. These are some nice tools. I use an offline image program when I need to do long detailed work, but when I just need something quick and easy I use an online image tool. These I will have to check out for sure.

  5. I love picknik… it has lots of great options which others don't have… eventhough most of them are paid, it is worth to spend money…

  6. You should change the credit from prntscr.com to pixlr.com

    The former iframes the latter and so it really isn't their tool. Not sure what their relationship is either (does pixlr know they are using it?)

  7. Hi sharik, it looks good. And, i hope that it would be work fine and i have to start with this. And, i would like say thank you for given a superb info on here.

  8. I know it’s limited, and very basic… but I really like Skitch. Just thought I’d add it to the list.

    Thanks for sharing… this article is a great resource! I’ll definitely be checking some of these sites.

  9. I have also done a review of Citrify, which is a pretty neat free online photo editing tool. I guess everyone has their favorites ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No Marlene> Photoshop is not outdated and it is the best Photo Editing software in my opinion.
      Actually the mentioned online tools are free but Photoshop is paid so you can say these tools are very useful for anyone.

  10. Nice list of free editing apps… I really liked Prntscr… these apps come handy when you do not have your personal system with you and are pretty fast loading apps which can be accessed from anywhere…
