This time in WT Picks, we are going to review some of the best online image editors. We have to use the word Photoshop, one way or the other. Reason being, the overall familiarity and awareness towards Photo editing and the term Photoshop. Anyhow, lets not make it anymore confusing. In this article we have picked three online image editors including sumo, pixlr, and splash up.
Sumo Paint is an art community with an online tool. This tool is one of the most interesting image editing and creation tool yet made. On the stats side, it has more than 16 million unique users and is used globally. People login, paint and share. It’s close to online version of Photoshop with the presence of all tabs such as layers, styles, swatches, color picker, filters, and adjustments. Some added features include ink tool, symmetry tool, custom shape tool, and curve tool. After using it and testing out all the available features, this is definitely worth a try, 5 out 5 for an online image editing and creation tool with support for more than 50 languages.

Pixlr Editor is a free cloud based image editing tool. It lies close as an online replacement for Photoshop but not completely and it can never be. Text, gradients, layer styles, colors, effects are some of the key tools available within Pixlr. Being flash based and having a layout which is comfortable with keyboard short cuts makes this tool stand out. Fast and powerful export options does give this tool some extra edge over others. We did a full test when reviewing this online tool, you can read the full review of Pixlr Editor.
Similar to Pixlr in functionality, splashup loses somewhat of the user interface. On the contrary, you have access to similar tools as of Pixlr. You can capture images directly from webcam as an added feature. Filters option is very limited, having access to 8 filters. There are some adjustments controls available as well but are not present under its own tab. Yet you will find adjustments like hue/saturation and contrast/brightness under filters tab. Confusing?! or made in rush!. While saving images, you can directly export them to social media networks such as Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, Photobucket etc. Overall a decent tool! is fast and does what is say.
