If you’ve been following the 365 Project, you’ll have noticed some differences in my photos lately. I’ve fallen in love with tinkering with them. A filter here, a frame there. Not every one, but sometimes they just need that little bit of zing.
When I started out with the DSLR I was very reluctant to use any photo-editing software. Call me a purist, but there is a certain artistic element to making a photo (whole other blog post there!).
So, here are some of my favourite free online editors, and some recent finds I’m yet to play with…
Picnik is my go-to editor. Fast and easy, and with tons of tools, effects, stickers and frames to play with.
Poladroid is a recent find I’m yet to muck around with. Why? There are polaroid frames in both Picnik and Pilxr – and with Poladroid still being in beta, I’m in no rush.
Shape Collage I’ve seen around before. You can “make picture collages in less than a minute with just a few mouse clicks.”
Big Huge Labs is exactly that – big and huge. With heaps and heaps and heaps of different apps, you could lose a whole afternoon playing here!
FotoFlexer looks like it has some interesting features – with Basic, Effects, Decorate, Animations, Beautify, Distort, Layers and Geek tabs available. Another editor you could get lost playing in.
If anyone has experience playing with the ones I’m yet to try, please let me know what you think of them in comments.
And as I come across others, I’ll add them to my Photography Notes, so keep an eye out!
