As a result, less energy is required to kee […]

Online Photoshop Alternatives!

I’ve spent the last few days researching the top 3 photoshop alternatives, and heres what I have


3.  Picnik: A free but not as totally in control as photoshop. Basic photo editing capabilities, but can’t add or erase or basically edit anything except hues and colors.

http://www.picnik.com/

2. Adobe Photoshop Express: Basically a better version of picnik. It’s got the best theme in my book out of these though.

and…

1. SplashUp!: A great (almost) fully functional photoshop alternative. You can do almost anything photoshop Cs3 can do… for a 100% discount! Great for a web app.

http://www.splashup.com/

These are all great. Personally though, if you want a free, fully functional photoshop, (sorry, it’s not on the net) download GIMP.
