A Trifecta of Web-based Photography Tools

Even though it would be nice, the reality is that many people who are interested in photography do not have the financial means to purchase expensive software to edit or retouch their pictures. And in some cases, they don’t have the time to do some of the necessary but tedious tasks without the help of automation.

These three FREE web-based tools can be a big help.

Editor: Pixlr

Can’t afford Photoshop or similar applications? Don’t want to have to deal with downloading big programs like GIMP? The Pixlr tool allows you to do all the basics and a lot more in your browser. It’s powerful and relatively easy to use with a professional feel layout.

Effects: LunaPic

Even though LunaPic is a bit less user-friendly, it’s still fairly easy to work with and gives people the ability to make all sort of filter adjustments and more. It’s like some of the filtering apps available for your phone but generally less generic and more powerful.

Resizer: Bulk Resize Photos

There are a bunch of reasons why you might need to resize photos to make the smaller. After all, if you all posting them online it’s not always a brilliant idea to have them in full resolution.  You can use this to quickly resize any number of pictures.

Spot Color app? Why not

With the exception of some rather snarky photography purists, many people like the idea of spot color photographs. And while there are many ways to get this done, some either involve expensive software or a level of expertise that takes a long time to attain. However, there is a simple and decent option for anyone that owns an Android smart phone or device.

The Color Touch application is free and allows easy adjustment.

Here is a promo sample from the app’s page.

Font Creations

Was there any point in computer usage that you wanted to type in a font that fit a specific look but couldn’t find one to fill your need? Well, in my research I’ve come across some ways to create my own true type files that can also be used on the Internet for blogs or sites.

At this point, I’m offering designs of these creative efforts of typography through my freelancing service.

You can check out the package of custom fonts on my Fiverr.com profile.
