There are a number of services that allow you to edit your photos online. And some will even upload images directly to your online album with services like flikr. Below are three online photo editors.
PXN8 (http://pxn8.com) offers a few basic editing tools - like rotating, cropping and red eye correction – along with a handful of “fun effects” filters. You can also upload your enhanced photos directly to your flikr albums from PXN8.
myimager.com (www.myimager.com) offers more robust online photo editing than PXN8. There are adjustments for hue, saturation and lightness, as well as more filter options. Uploaded images are limited to 500 KB.
PHIXR (www.phixr.com) is an account-based online image editor. With a free account, you can work with files up to 1.3 MB. PHIXR offers a wide array of tools – as many as some retail products.
If you work with large numbers of photos – or very large image files – these services probably aren't for you. But if you don't need to edit a lot of photos, online photo editing can be a viable alternative.
