Online photo editor is a rising trend and excellent engaging way to edit photo with one-click-tweak filter effects. While professional photographer produces photos with exceptional photography skill or edit with sophisticated program such as Photoshop and CorelDraw, I found online photo editor is more fit to a non-photo savvy like me, mainly due to its simplicity and flexibility. Another real claim to the fame is of course the generosity of the developer by offering free service to the user.
Again, we sifted through the maze and compiled a list of best online photo editors which integrated with neat filter effects. List after the jump.

Similar with several online photo editor, Fotoflexer comprises all the basic editing tools and integrates other famous platform like Facebook, Picasa, Flickr and more to allow you to import photo from those services. On top of that, it has 33 filter effects in the editor that are worth trying.

My attention was caught by the sleek design of Picture2Life at the first landing, then mesmerised again by the awesome features. As the description by its own, Picture2Life is a free, powerful, but simple and easy-to-use online photo editor which also allows you to create collages and animated gif’s. And for my reminder, don’t ever miss out the brilliant photo masking feature that turns the tedious masking into a piece of cake.
Despite the free version, it’s already a premium and precisely developed online photo editor which covers not only the routine features. There are some special effect and tool that I found only limited at Sumo and every user should at least give a try to the ‘Symmetry Tool’ and ‘Lighting Effect’ at the filter section. Pretty interesting and fun evoking features though!
Ranging from colour adjustment to artistic effect, the best of iPiccy is still the retouching feature. You can easily fix the red-eye, whiten the teeth, change the lip colour, and even ‘Thinify’ your face with just a simple click. If you’re the person who like to try some special editing tool, the ‘Clone Tool’ and the pattern of collages are the features you can’t find at any other place else.
This is the wonderland where you can have absolutely fun of photo with zero knowledge of photo editing. Nothing much actually I can comment with such a library of more than 100+ photo effects. You just got to try it yourself.
In a time of disruptive new technologies and competition, I strongly believe in the product that can serve sophistication in a simplest way, will hold the crown at the future. This is also another reason behind the rising online photo editor or photo editing apps.
