With the crop tool, you can select a custom area to crop by clicking and dragging the cropping arrows in the bottom right or top left of the image, or you can select one of our preset aspect ratios for great looking crops. The final size of the cropped area will be shown in the center of the image.


One-Touch Adjustments

Edits made on a slider to adjust sharpness, colors, and saturation



We have the following tools under the adjust option that use a simple slider to make your changes smoother:


Brightness - adjust the overall lightness or darkness of your image.

Saturation - adjust the intensity of the color in your image.

Contrast - adjust the the blacks and the whites of your image. High contrast means the blacks are really dark and the whites are really bright. While a low contrast will make your image look like it has a gray wash to it.

Gamma - adjust the overall brightness of an image. Use this feature to help make sure your images don’t look too bleached out or too dark

Clarity - adjust the sharpness of your image

Exposure - adjust the amount of light that affects your image

Shadows - adjust the details of the darker areas of your image

Highlights - adjust the details of the brightest areas of your image



Give your photos a little extra life



Choose from a variety of filters for your photo. From classics like black and white, retro, or analog, any one of these presets are sure to enhance your photo in new and dynamic ways. You can scroll through all of the filters using the scroll bar at the bottom or select a category by clicking the button in the lower left to filter through the types of filters.


The Intensity bar will let you control how much the filter effects your photo.


Other Tools

Drawing, adding text, and color on black and white




Use this to keep one area of your photo clear, while blurring the rest of the photo to help your image pop more. Use the slider to adjust the focus and blur.
