Christian Real Estate Professionals : Top FREE Image and Photo Editing Sites

Top FREE Image and Photo Editing Sites

There is so much concern and “Buzz” about Google shutting down Picnik.com, I decided to provide you with some alternative tools for editing and customizing your graphics, photos, and images.   While Picnik.com will be shutting down in April 2012, here are some other options you have available immediately.

FotoFlexer – Create some dazzling photo and image effects in your browser for FREE.  Use Animations, resizing, coloring, contrast and more.  Take a look at These 5 Demo’s for a quick tour of what FotoFlexer has to offer, you’ll love some of these cool features.  Smart Scissor is a favorite feature.

Pixlrand for Picnik users, try Pixlr Express.  You’ll love the Editor, the Pixlr-o-matic, the Pixlr Grabber for Firefox and Chrome browsers, and the Pixlr Imm.io hosting, all of which are very robust and user friendly cool features.

LunaPic – This site will rock your world!  Lunapic offers more choices and options for photo editing and custom effects than some of the paid software applications I’ve purchased and used in the past.  Use vignettes, color bars, animated imaging, picture frames, retro color, collages, custom text, reflection animations, slide shows, and a ton more.  One of the most feature rich FREE online editors available.  You’re gonna love this site.

FreeOnlinePhotoEditor – A really simple and easy to use photo and image editor for those “quick fix and gotta go” graphics.  Very basic but simple and fast.  Some of the other online photo and image tools include:  OnlinePhotoTool.com: Online photo editorAutomatically resize your images when sending it by emailCreate an Image from your RSS feedCreate Image from your Tweet and Twitter account, and Create, save and email screenshots.

BeFunky -  Be Funky lets you do some pretty amazing things with your photos and graphics.  Most of the features and tools are focused on creating cool, fun, and funky effects and artwork.  The site’s name says it.  Some of the effects available would take hours to create in Photoshop or other high end and costly photo/image editors.

Definitely worthy of a visit and tour.

Photoshop.com – That’s right, you can use Photoshop online and for FREE.  You’ll need to register, but I promise it will be worth it.  The Photoshop tools are powerful and very easy to use.  Be prepared to spend a little time here, you’ll be amazed at what they have to offer and allow you to do online for free.  I’m not going to lie, this is one of my favorites and my personal replacement for Picnik.com closing down.

GIMP – GIMP is very similar to Adobe Photoshop except that GIMP is FREE.  It does require you to download the software but one huge benefit to that is it will never be bought and shut down on you.  It is a very powerful and feature intense program so unless you’re really experienced with editing and graphic design, or you have more time than it takes to close a short sale, you may want to stick with one of the others.

I personally like to use GIMP for graphic design more than image or photo editing.

Combine all these together and you’ll have more FREE editing tools and features than you’ll ever need or use and absolutely FREE.  Take a few moments to review each site, bookmark them, then give each one a try to see which one(s) best meet your photo and image editing needs.  Enjoy!

Brad, I've also found that Picasa (a free site from Google) is excellent for the basic editing that I use for ActiveRain.

I also wanted to say how much I enjoyed your webinar the other day on Postlets.

Posted by Gary Coles (International Referrals), Latin America Real Estate (Venture Realty International) over 5 years ago

Brad to the rescue - again!

Been experimenting with photo resizers, seems I waste a lot of time doing that individually.

Posted by Denise Lynn Zuzak, Scottsdale AZ Realtor | Home Stager (My Home Group) over 5 years ago

Thank you Brad! I've been wanting to find a program that would let me remove backgrounds without the edges being subject to my "hand-shake."

Posted by Jo Soss, Stevens County WA Real Estate - HOMEFRONT Realty (HOMEFRONT Realty) over 5 years ago

Brad -- This post is surely a keeper. Thanks so much. I am really interested in the photoshop.com. I just bought a new computer and this might just be the answer since I will still use the old one and I only have one PS license.

It's kind of sad that Picnik is shutting down. I know many people who have relied on it for years to manage their photos. Nice job compiling this list Brad. It's sure to come in handy for so many.

Posted by Nancy Conner, Olympia/Thurston County WA (Managing Broker - City Realty Inc) over 5 years ago

Photoshop and GIMP are my favorite. And there are some sites that offer free software for such needs for limited times. Yes, Picnik was the way to go for easy touch up and resize of pictures but I don't think it  will be missed.

Posted by Praful Thakkar, Andover, MA: Andover Luxury Homes For Sale (eXp Realty) over 5 years ago

Thanks Brad- I loved Picnik and will have to look into these options :)

Awesome, that is very cool and useful when we do not have other photo programs around.

Brad, thanks so much for taking the time to do the research.  When I first heard about Picnik shutting down, I was going through some withdrawals.  Your post takes the edge off a little.

Posted by Ron Cooks, Texas Real Estate, Ft Hood/Killeen Homes for Sale (The Real Estate Marketplace) over 5 years ago

Thanks Brad, I use picnik all the time which I think will still be available on Google+ time to check out these  options. 

Posted by David Popoff, Realtor®,SRS, Green ~ Fairfield County, Ct (DMK Real Estate ) over 5 years ago

Thanks, Brad.  I use Picnik every day and really need to find a replacement.  Flickr has announced that they will be offering photo editing features to replace Picnik.

Normally, I would include a flower photograph in my comments ActiveRain has advised that photographs are no longer allowed in comments.

Posted by Roy Kelley, Roy and Dolores Kelley Photographs (Realty Group Referrals) over 5 years ago

Thanks for taking the time to put together optional sites. When I first saw that Picknk was shutting down, I was bummed. But I had a feeling you would come up with alternate sites. Thanks aain. Which is your favorite?

Posted by Blatt + Cutino, Broker-Associate 831/206-8070*Call today* (Keller Williams Coastal Estates) over 5 years ago

I pick my favorite post of the day to reblog and the train stops right here. The Picnik is over concept leaves you wondering which tools to use next for collages etc. in your Actuve Rain posts. This post  poses some good alternatives. I hope there is training coming along, too, for the transition to some new products.

Posted by Cheryl Ritchie, Southern Maryland 301-980-7566 (RE/MAX Leading Edge www.GoldenResults.com) over 5 years ago

Brad - thanks for these alternatives. I'm bookmarking and going out to check them all. Have a great day.

Posted by Toni Weidman, 26 Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 5 years ago

Brad: In your experience, which of the ones you suggest is best for resizing? Picnik resizes so quickly and easily; it is hard to compete.

Posted by Melissa Zavala, Broker, Escondido Real Estate, San Diego County (Broadpoint Properties) over 5 years ago

GIMP is classic.  They even have an overlay that makes it look and work like Photoshop.  This is a great list of free tools and they will address the loss of Picnik.

Posted by Bryan Robertson, Broker, Author, Speaker (Intero Real Estate) over 5 years ago

Brad: Thank you for sharing this information as I was just trying to figure out what I was going to try when Picnik goes out.

Posted by Pat Mistretta, Atlanta Lofts and City Living (PalmerHouse Properties & Associates) over 5 years ago

Brad, These online editors are great when you don't want to install software.  GIMP on PC and GraphicConverter on a Mac are some inexpensive or free alternatives to Photoshop.  Each comes with it's own mindset, metaphors, tools, and learning curve, of course.

Posted by George Fanucci, Internet - Technology - Business - Solutions (CoreFact.com) over 5 years ago

Brad,  which editor did you use for the kids pic ?  I am looking for a good editor to do a nice watercolor any suggestions / any one ? 

Posted by Karen Ann Martin, Realtor Fall River Westport MA Real Estate Agent (Safe Harbor Realty ) over 5 years ago

Karen - each of them has unique options and features, if you're looking for watercolor or pastels type effects, try iPiccy.com, or ribbet.com if it's up and running yet?  Ribbet.com is the new Picnik.com twin.  :-)
