Photoshop first version was released on October 1988, from that onwards it holds the crown of best image editing software. But for home users it is still hard to get trained in it and also it is little expensive. No worries!!! we always have free software to do the same. Before going there I like to share some of the Online photo editors which is free, Browser based(no download or install headaches), Easy to use, malware and adware free.
Pixlr is one of the best online photo editing tool with the user interface almost same like most of the professional photo editing software. Photo editing tools can be found in the left side of the interface and you have the history panel and color setting panel in the right side. You have option to create different layer in case if you like to merge two or more images. If you like to add a different background to your photo then it is pretty easy with the laso tool and layer merge.
Photo Express is a product of Adobe Photoshop that itself is a plus point. You can create impressive images in few simple steps with the basic features like crop, rotate and resize along with some advance features like soft focus, sketch effect, red-eye removal, touch up and adding some special effects to create unique style photos. You can import and export images to your library from your computer, facebook, flickr, photobucket and picasa. Saving back to your computer is also pretty easy with a single mouse click.

Lunapic is a HTML based photo editor meaning it can work on any browser without any plugin installed while all the above mentioned need Adobe flash plugin to be installed. But it can be a disadvantage too because it may need to connect with server for applying most of the effects you added which may take little time, other than it offers all the features which you need for photo editing. Top effects offered includes Reflecting Animation, Paste & Blend,Snow Fall and Floating Hearts. Lunapic even allow you to create photo cards which can be used as holiday cards during the time of Christmas.
