Taking pictures can be fun but when they turn out to be average or not so good, you want to preserve those moments with whatever it takes. Well, I am here to help you get to some of the free online tools to enhance you photos. Now, keep in mind that your original photo has to be in focus. None of the tools will give you the clarity if it is out of focus. I am one of those people whom would like the easy to play with instruction. If it gets too complicated or time consuming, I tend to stay away from that as I have other things in life to deal with.

As I mentioned in one of my previous hub, there is Picasa which you have to download. There are so many websites which you do not need to download the program. In fact, you don’t even have to sign up for an account if you do not want to store your pictures on their website. Let me give you a few to play with.

LunaPic- This is so easy to use and very self explanatory. It gives you the option of from adjusting the color to give you special effects such as mirror image, water reflections, vignette, lightning, collage, animation, etc.

Then there is picnik. It has some of the common features but also have teeth whiten, black & white, soften, tint, invert, etc. Now the website offers some features with a premium but that is your option to purchase.

Now, we are getting to the fun stuff! FotoFlexer is one of the websites which gives you a bit of creativity. It gives you the features of pinch, bulge, twirl, stretch, and squish. It also offers borders, frames, etc. If you are in advance of photo editing, then you will enjoy layers. I have not gotten that far yet.

So, I explore for more websites to give me more entertainment! FunPhotoBox has the option of putting your own photo into a template. I just love this website. It is similar to PhotoFunia and Deefunia.

There are many free online tools to help you fine tune your photos and give you the pleasure of exploring and creating the out of the world possibilities! Now, go and have fun!

      Those image tools look like a lot of fun. I especially liked the first one where you made yourself an action star. Well done on the hub tim-tim.

      These pictures are really cool! I usually use picnik to sharpen my blurry photos (darn hand shake lol) but thats about it. There weren't that many free features... Will definitely try out the other sites you mentioned here. Thanks for the info :)
