  4. Hi There,
    Definitely helpful post. I always use Photoshop and KrojamSoft PhotoViewerPro but recently I have used picmonkey I thought that pic monkey is better in online photo editor. What do you think about offline photo editors? In case of online photo editor, Photoshop is the best. Am I right?

  5. Pixlr is a cloud-based set of image tools and utilities, including a number of photo editors, a screen grabber browser extension, and a photo sharing service. The suite was intended for non-professionals, however the apps range from simple to advanced photo editing.
