More Info

In my list of photo editing tools and apps, all feature basic editing capabilities.

Here is an overview of what each of the photo editing platforms and tools has to offer. As is, you can create so much with them, and you get a taste of how they work.

Bloggers will find the free versions to be excellent and meet their needs.

Both my photos and stock photos would benefit from these. There are times when tweaks are needed, such as cropping. Optimizing images for SEO is also important.

But back to the free tools. Here are the best of the best!

Whether you're using the desktop version or the app, these brands are great photo editor with tons of features.

1. Piscart

Photo editing companies are professional service providers that enhance and transform digital images. Piscart offers various editing services, utilizing skilled photo editors and advanced software tools to improve visual appeal, quality, and overall impact. They cater to a diverse clientele, including professional photographers, businesses, e-commerce platforms, marketing agencies, and individuals. A typical Photo editing agency employs an experienced photo editor with a deep understanding of various editing techniques and the expertise to bring out the best in the images.

Their services typically include basic edits such as exposure and color adjustments, retouching to remove imperfections, background removal or replacement, image restoration, creative effects, and batch editing for efficiency. By outsourcing photo editing to these specialized companies, clients can benefit from their technical proficiency, artistic vision, and resources.

2. Pixlr E

You can edit your images with Pixlr's freemium photo editing tool. Additionally, it includes many of the features found in Adobe Photoshop. With its left-hand toolbar, it feels a bit like Photoshop.

Some of its unique features make it a favorite among many, such as dodge and burn, healing, cropping, etc. You can also adjust brightness, contrast, and color as usual.

One of the things I love about Pixlr is how easy it is to optimize your images for small file sizes.

When saving an image, choose JPG, resize it to your theme's minimum image size, and set the quality slider to 70%.

The quality won't be affected, but the file size will be reduced. If you use small image files, your posts will load much faster.

There is a limit to how many images you can save as of 2023 (boo!). If you want more, you'll have to upgrade. Budget-friendly and effective, it's a worthwhile investment if you're on a tight budget.

Featuring many cool features, it's a useful free tool that makes editing so much easier.

Take advantage of PIXLR-E's free trial. Extra features are available with the premium option.

3. PiZap

PiZap is another free tool for editing photos and creating designs. There is quite a bit of functionality in the photo editing tool. You can fine-tune the images with sliders.

With the Meme editing feature, you can take a photo and create a meme look with block lettering.

In addition, you can add graphic overlays (e.g. social media icons, items, etc.), filters, and text. It's a fantastic free tool that combines Pixlr E with Pixlr X (graphic design software).

Using PiZap's pre-existing templates, you can also create social media images, phone wallpaper, and memes.

Take advantage of PiZap's free trial! There is an upgraded version with more options.

4. Fotor

Among the best free image editing tools is Fotor.

As with the other tools mentioned above, it does a great job editing photos. As well as designing social media images, it allows you to create your own.

However, Fotor is best known for its portrait tools.

This is a great desktop photo editing tool if you need to tweak and edit a selfie or photo of somebody.

With the free version, you can remove wrinkles, fix blemishes, and whiten your teeth. The pro version offers additional features.

Fotor is like a Canva wannabe. Many of the familiar options are still available on the left-hand side.

Canva users, doesn't it look familiar?

Image resizing isn't as easy as with Pixlr, which is unfortunate. Bloggers who are short on time love this feature since it allows them to be more productive.

Free trial of Fotor is available. There is also a paid version with cool features such as removing backgrounds and templates.

5. Adobe Lightroom (App)

Bloggers can use this app on their phones to edit professional-grade photos.

Your Instagram images will go from being humdrum to being WOW with this. The problem is even more prevalent when you're using presets that you've added to your Lightroom library.

There is no cost associated with this app.

There are a few extra features in the upgraded Lightroom version that you may want to explore, but you may not need them.

You can take an average photo and instantly upgrade it to a WOW photo by adding presets (you can buy them and there are instructions on how to add them).

Here are some other apps that work well

As I discover new sites and apps, I'll add them here. Don't forget to bookmark this post!

Colorcinch is a new app for editing photos and cartoonizing them.

It was a pleasure to test out the free and upgraded versions.

This tool saves files without sacrificing quality, just like Pixlr-E. You must, however, resize the image separately before saving. Because it does save time, I hope they streamline the process!

With Colorcinch (upgrade), you can add frames, text, overlays, effects and masks to the standard photo editor.

In addition, it has a fantastic cartoonizer that turns photos into art.

Bloggers who are looking for a platform that offers quite a bit will find this extremely affordable. But it doesn't break the bank like Adobe. Colorcinch is free to try.

You can also create your own avatar using the free avatar maker on the site:
