GIMP Shmimp, Give Me a Browser
Don't get me wrong, I love The GIMP. We all love The GIMP, as our Readers' Choice awards show this month. If I'm being completely honest, however, I rarely have the need for such a powerful application. Usually, regardless of what computer system I'm on, I pick Pixlr as my image editing program.
Pixlr is a Web-based image editing tool that rivals native applications in speed, and more important, in functionality. Powerful tools like "spot heal" that aren't found in most simple image editors are essential for folks like me who still get teenager-like pimples in their late 30s. It also integrates with on-line storage (Flickr, Picasa, Facebook) and allows simple uploads/downloads to your local computer. In fact, you have to look really hard in order to realize Pixlr isn't a native application.
Regardless of what operating system you're on, you can check out Pixlr right now by heading to http://pixlr.com/editor. It's not GIMP, but it certainly isn't gimpy either.
