The Best Free Online Photo Editing Sites

Editing your photos can be a big blogging chore. Luckily, there's a few free online sites that can help make your blog photos so much nicer. Whether its brightening a photo, making a blog banner or mocking up a collage, I've got a round up of the best free photo editing sites on the net.

Pixlr
This is very similar to photoshop in its layout. Its more complicated to use than other free sites but there are a few tutorials on the web. Pixlr editor is the main section you need for doing everything from photo editing to making collages for wishlists etc. There aren't as many features as photoshop but it has what you need for brightening photographs, cropping, resizing. For fonts, you can use the ones stored on your computer or new ones you download.

Picmonkey
Probably the easiest editing site to use. There are limited basic features but you can pay for extra ones - for photo editing I personally feel that the free functions are fine. There are a few different fonts to use and the you can crop, resize, and brighten though there are no curves/levels feature. A lot of the time I find that picmonkey doesn't load or certain features wont load so it isn't the most reliable.

ipiccy
Similar to picmonkey but with some extra features, such as levels/curves for brightening photographs. Its also really easy to make collages with the collage tool and some nice fonts. Its definitely my favourite editor as its simple to use and always loads quickly.

Fotoflexer
Similar to ipiccy but some less features. There are some really nice handwritten style fonts on here so its nice for adding text. I think ipiccy and pixlr are better for actual photo editing though.

A few others to mention are photoscape which although free, needs to be downloaded - I've only just downloaded it so I haven't used it much but first impressions aren't great. I think you're better sticking to the online editors to be honest. Another is befunky, which I've only used once but it looks similar to picmonkey.
Overall, free online photo editing sites are definitely good enough to use for editing blog photos or making a blog banner/collages. Photoshop is much more advanced but I don't feel you should splash out on it for the benefit of blogging. If there's any other site you can recommend let me know in the comments!
