Three Photo Editing Tools to Check Out

Dumpr I just learned about Dumpr from Download Squad. It’s a tool that offers free and pro photo editing options. Checking out this site reminded me to tell you that I’m also pretty fond of some other great web tools that you might not be using.

  • A.viary is a hardcore photo editing app, kind of like Photoshop without the price tag and disk install. But it’s way cooler than that. It’s a whole lot of really interesting editing abilities and a whole community of people doing their own thing with the tools that makes this one a great choice. Note: it’s still in an invite-only beta period (when does that end, guys?), but maybe I can score you a few invites, if you’re interested. Let me know in the comments, and I’ll ask the team.

  • Picnik is a lightweight photo editing tool that gets me through pretty much all of my needs right now. I use it about twice a day, and have found that it does most everything I need from a photo editor. It’s not really good with batch-based activities, but if you’re into editing things one at a time, this is for you.

  • Skitch (the bonus round) acts as a screen capture and annotation tool. It’s super easy to use, has just enough tools to be useful but not so many that you feel bloated and misunderstood. I use it to do lots of odd jobs on capture screens and little images from web pages. Definitely good to have.

More and more, I’m choosing tools and applications that live in the cloud. Why? Because after dropping my laptop the other day and losing every on-disk application, I realized that there are lots of benefits to having my data and my tools available from anywhere there’s a web browser. There are some exceptions, of course, but when I find great web tools, I want to share them.

What about you? What are you using on the web that’s cool?

    @MR X – not unless you’re willing to give me money. : )

    Paid post. That would be IZEA down the street.

    I don’t make a dime off my blog, unless you count the expansion into other opportunities.

    Hi again Chris,
    Catching up on older blog posts and backed up Reader today – would love a chance to use A.viary in beta if it were to become available.

    Thanks,

    Another cool tool is also:

    http://www.sumopaint.com

    I think it has the best tools for painting purposes and its probably the fastest browser based photo editing software available!
