Over the past few years, I’ve been accumulating links to — and experimenting with — various online photo editors and sites for photo effects. There are certainly a zillion of them out there.
PhotFunia is suggested by reader Ann Carnevale.
Pic Ghost is a new online photo editor that lets you upload up to twenty photos at a time. It’s editing functions are rather limited now — you can resize the images and add a watermark to them — but they expect to be adding more features in the future. Their ability to upload multiple images is nice.
PicMonkey joins the many other tools on the list by offering many different kinds of photo-editing features.
FotoJet is a new free online photo editor.
Snapstouch is a “free online tool to covert your photo to sketch, photo to painting, photo to drawing, photo to outline…”
Wofox is a new photo-editing tool that has lots of bells-and-whistles.
ImgOps is a new multi-use photo application that is worth a look.
iPiccy is an impressive all-purpose online photo editor. It pretty much lets you do whatever you want with your photo, including adding text and effects. You can upload an image or grab its url address off the Web.
Phrase.it lets you easily add speech bubbles with your text to photos. You can upload your own, or choose a random image from the site. You’re then given a link to your creation.
10 Tips for Digital Photo Editing & Fun is from The Daring Librarian.
The Edublogger has just published a very useful post: Our 3 Favorite Free Online Image Editors For Education.
Over looks like a useful photo-editing tool.
Let’s Enhance is a photo-editing tool.
Kapwing lets you very easily create memes. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Making Internet ” Memes.” I’m also adding it here because it lets you create photo speech-bubbles.
➰ You can markup an image with the Photos app on an iPhone or iPad. It is kind of hidden: Tap a photo’s Edit button, then the More icon, then Markup. pic.twitter.com/eALvqll0GH

Hi Larry, thanks for these. I’m really getting into the 365 blog at the moment and it’s good to have resources like this.
Have you used Picnik.com?
Have you had a chance to look at PhotoFunia (http://photofunia.com)? I just blogged about it for my teachers, and heard some good feedback in the hallways. It allows the user to insert photos into interesting locations and items, such as billboards, sides of buildings, art galleries, stamps, money, etc… It’s a good teacher tool at the elementary level for building writing prompts, and can be a good tool for older students to use on their own.
Great list. Thanks for sharing. Don’t forget:
You also forgot http://www.cellsea.com/ which has all kinds of things as well. It used to be one of the few that went through our school filter, however, we changed filters and now it doesn’t work! Grrr… I’ll try some of the others and see if they’ll work!
I think that you might want to add Picnik, a great, simple, easy photo editing site that a lot of kids at my school use. Thanks for the ideas!
I love this list! and adding it to Sqworl list! http://sqworl.com/t1m1f8

PicGhost is now:

Thanks for taking your time to compile this comprehensive list. A few years ago i was using Picnik to edit my photos but after the site was closed, i started using Pixlr, which is a very good alternative by the way. However, because i travel a lot and don’t always have access to the internet, i decided to go for a desktop application. I have Kestrel GX and Picture! Editor installed on my laptop. Both are incredible software and fairly easy to use to manipulate images.
For those who want to download these software, here are the links :
