Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Free picture editing/editor similar to features in Instagram

Philippe Trebaul's curator insight, March 30, 12:17 AM


Pimagic is an excellent and super-intuitive free online image editor

accessible to anyone without needing to download, register, login or install anything. 


You can easily upload any image you have, and crop it, or apply to it one of several presets which allow you to easily improve it.

Pimagic also offers a set of visual effects, similar to those available in Instagram. 


Images can be saved in either .jpg or .png file formats.


The only function I was not able to find was a resizing tool. Did I miss it? 



Useful. Easy. Immediate.


Free to use. Ad free. 


Try it out now: http://app.pikock.com/pimagic ;



Thanks to Ana Cristina Pratas for uncovering this gem.
