SnipShot: Ajax editing fights back

Category: Showcase

We recently featured Picnik a simple Flash image editor that we liked.

It seemed to make some of the Ajax solutions look a little cheesy in comparison (no offense).

Then we saw SnipShot a fully Ajax editor that is fairly similar to Picnik, with some features nicer, and others that we do not prefer.

There is a distinct feel difference between the Ajax and the pure Flash solution, but it is a lot closer between these two products.

I just don’t understand the facination with this simplistic web-based image editors. They all suck compared to Photoshop, GIMP, Paint Shop, etc. Hell they suck compared to MS Paint!

I think they are all just toys.

Most Windows users have no photo editing program other than Paint. And Paint lacks rotation and image enhancement, which these online editors do have.

I also want to add that this online photo editing programs can be used in the backend areas of an CMS in strict relation with an WYSIWYG HTML editor and you can enhance you article editor. I know I would!

These image editors come into their own when the image is already on the web e.g. flickr. Imagine editing your photos without downloading, reuploading etc.
