I’m not technically inclined and don’t choose to learn how to use perplexing photo editing programs. Instead I use several free online image editing programs frequently. If GIMP gives you headaches and photshop confuses you, try FotoFlexer. The ease of use and the variety of features brings me back to FotoFlexer time and again.
When I first began blogging I downloaded photoshop, Irfanview and GIMP. It didn’t take me long to become annoyed at my own ineptitude. The length of time it took me how to figure out how to accomplish the most simple image edits exceeded the time it took for me to create and post, edit it, and have it ready to go sans images. I was so annoyed I jettisoned all three programs I downloaded and began to search for easy to use online image editing software.
These are the tools I most commonly use.
I have tried all these out and had some fun doing so. I particularly like the Sketch and Soften effects.
FotoFlexer was one of the first online image editing programs I tried out. No registration required. I could upload images from my computer and the program was so easy to use that I could accomplish what I wanted to quickly and easily.
That was a real boost to my self esteem because the Gimp and photoshop programs I downloaded made me feel like an idiot, and due to the head injuries I have suffered and testing I have undergone I’m well aware that my IQ is still in the gifted range. I was spitting mad by the time I located Fotorflexer online but I was smiling within minutes of my arrival onsite as I had a great image ready to save to my computer and embed into my blog post.
Although I do use other online image editing programs from time to time and I will be reviewing them too, I find that FotoFlexer has almost everything I want.
