There are some very good online photo editors available, tools like Picinik, pixer.us, Snipshot; and everybody knows that Adobe is about to release an online version of Photoshop. However there’s a new contender in this battle and it’s called Splashup.
Splashup, formerly Fauxto, is a powerful editing tool and photo manager. With all the features professionals use and novices want, it's easy to use, works in real-time and allows you to edit many images at once. Splashup runs in all browsers, integrates seamlessly with top photosharing sites, and even has its own file format so you can save your work in progress.
Splashup is a flash based application, it must work in all browsers, and one of the best things, in my opinion, is its interface. It basically recreates the Photoshop’s UI, making the learning curve less steep if you are familiar with the Adobe app.
There’s a lot to be done, as they are still in beta; like the filters and the blending modes. Even though it lacks a lot of features we can have a very good idea what to expect in the next generation of these online photo editors, as they will be able to take advantage of technologies such as Adobe® AIR™, Silverlight and the new Mozilla Prism.
Here is an image I created using it, it's definitely worth giving it a try.
