A big reason why Chromebooks have become so popular is because almost every modern-day application is now available via your web browser.
However, when it comes to image editing, this still hasn’t changed yet. Tools such as Paint.NET and GIMP still continue to dominate Windows PCs.
Of course, Google Docs can help with spreadsheets and documents but this isn’t possible to do with images.
Also, while the Chrome OS editor is available for its user, it still is pretty barebones with the usual features such as cropping, rotating, adjusting the brightness and color of the image and so on and so forth.
It’s recommended that for more complex tasks, you will need third-party apps and that are free of costs.
Keeping this in mind, here are 3 free image editing tools that you can avail of:
#1: Pixlr Editor
For some reason, this has been the popular choice for those people who have to work with images. Although Autodesk has added advertisements, it’s still an excellent tool to use. Not only is it easy to use but it also contains features that it simple to edit a document while also offering layer support.
#2: Sumo Paint
Not very different from the Pixlr Editor but it avoids the annoying ads that Autodesk serves up to its users from time to time. It is for this reason that Sumo Paint is fast becoming the best choice for editing pictures on Chromebook. That said, Pixlr is still more powerful than Sumo as an editor but Sumo offers just as much without the ads.
This photo editor is perfect for photographers who want to apply filters and adjust color settings to their photographs for a better finish. Likened to Adobe Lightroom, the tool is so powerful that it can open RAW images from digital cameras too. Best part: this helps you work with the highest-detail image files.
