Fun Photo Editing Online

Updated on January 14, 2014

Got Photos? Give Them a New Look with Fun Photo Editing Online

You don't have to be an expert with PhotoShop to create great photo effects with your digital pics. Several services make fun photo editing online a breeze. You simply upload your photo, click a few buttons, and your image is magically transformed into a fun new artistic creation. Then you can save it, send it, or share it. Whatever you do, you'll definitely have fun transforming your photos into fun new images at these sites.

Fun Photo Editing Online at Picnik

Google's online photo editing service

Getting acquired by Google is sort of like achieving web sainthood, and Picnik is one of the latest little companies to be blessed by the giant web leader. And since Google only acquires companies with great technology and cool features, you know Picnik must be good. It is.

Picnik gives you the usual basic photo editing functions -- you can crop, resize, and rotate your images in real-time. But what makes for fun photo editing online is their long list of effects, from sepia and black and white color options, to fun stickers and frames. Each feature has options that allow you to tweak and customize it to your heart's desire. With the stickers, for instance, you can choose options such as overlay and screen to make the image fade into the image more. With a whole selection of seasonal and categorized stickers for special occasions and events such as holidays and sports, you'll have plenty of choices to liven up your pics.

They also offer some less common effects such as night vision, which will turn your image a funky green color. (I'm not sure WHEN you'd need that effect, but if you ever want to show how you were feeling after a bad burrito, well, this might be the effect for you)

If you have your photos scattered across the web, never fear. Picnik allows you to oen a photo from Flickr, Picasa, Facebook, Photobucket, any website or your computer. The service is completely free, with nothing to download. You can, however, upgrade to a premium version that gives you additional features for as little as $2.08.month.

piZap Your Digital Photos

Fun photo editing site offers stickers, special effects and more

piZap is a fun photo editing online service that will allow you to add a variety of effects to your photos. While it's not as sophisticated as Picnik, you'll still be able to can add text, text bubbles, stickers, and effects such as fisheye or sepia. They also offer paint tools for you to add your own special touch. If you need some inspiration, you can browse the gallery of creations from other users. Don't worry about privacy, however - you can choose to keep your images private rather than adding them to the gallery.

The downside to this site is that is has a lot of ads and the interface is kind of busy, but you'll still have fun editing your digital photos, saving and sharing them online.

Picasa

A free photo editing program from Google

Picasa is also a Google photo editing service, one that was acquired several years ago.

It's not designed specifically for fun photo editing, but it does have some fun features in it, such as the ability to create collages (see example here) and the ability to add effects such as changing the color to sepia or black and white, adding soft focus or film grain or tinting your image any color you'd like. It also includes a movie maker that helps you create a movie from your images, complete with any audio track you'd like to add. And then you can upload your movie to YouTube right from the Picasa interface. You won't be able to do your fun photo editing online, however - you'll need to download Picasa to your computer to use its features.

      I have used Picasa and Piknik. Picasa took up way too much space on my pc and my husband complained so I removed it. Oh well.
