AJAX Image Editor – Snipshot

For most of my real quick image editing I usually use Paint.NET. That’s for when Photoshop is overkill and I’m not really a Gimp man, sorry. And of course MS Paint, or whatever it’s called now, it’s going to cut it, ever. But what do you do when you’re not home and away from your normal tools? Well I just use Paint.NET on my flash disk, but that’s another story.

Here is what normal people do: Snipshot. Here are some of the greatest features:

  • Import from any website or upload your own pictures
  • No need to download anything. Runs totally in a browser
  • Save files as GIF, JPG, PDF, PNG, or TIF
  • Crop, rotate, resize
  • Contrast, brightness, saturation, sharpness and hue
  • Files up to 10 MB

One feature which deserves a little more explanation is the Bookmarklet they provide. Save this bookmark to your browser’s favorites and anytime you’re browsing on a website and see a picture you’d like to edit, click the Bookmarklet. It brings up the Snipshot website with a list of all images on the page. Just click one and edit away.

Nice utility to have in a pinch if you need to do some quick touch ups.
