Already knew about several great free image editors but don’t feel like them, let’s start exploring some other option: free online photo editing applications.

Also, since you don’t have to install anything, you can test out as many applications as you want to find out which one you like the best. There’s no harm done to your computer, again no installation and no un-installation. You may have to sign up for a free account in order to use the application.
The way those online image editors work is you upload for photos, edit them, then they’re ready for use or download.
