Who says you need to purchase expensive photo editing software to get great quality prints and images? Certainly not the people behind Snipshot. The picture editing web-app gives amateur photographers all the tools they need to bring their images to life without any complicated downloads or add-on packages. Similar to Photoshop, but without all the unnecessary costs and complicated tools, Snipshot lets users edit RAW files and add special effects to photos of nearly any size.
Although you don’t need to download any software to begin using Snipshot, you will need to select a plan. Buy a two-week pass or sign up for a monthly subscription. If you’re an outside developer, you can sign up for Snipshot Services to get all the tools necessary to hook into Snipshot from your very own site. Assuming you’re an individual customer who has opted for a two-week pass, the next step is to edit a RAW photo using the service. Upload your own photo into the site, or use Snipshot’s bookmarklet tool to import photos you’ve found elsewhere on the web. You can automatically enhance any photo with just one click, or use Snipshot’s basic editing tools to crop, rotate, or resize any image. You can edit photos up to 10 MB or 25 megapixels in size, and thanks to Snipshot’s unlimited undo and redo options you won’t ever have to worry about making a mistake that can’t be changed. Once you’ve finished editing your photo and you’re happy with the product, just click to save it as a GIF, JPG, PDF, or PNG file.
For users who want even more functionality, Snipshot offers 12 different special effects that make it easy to turn any photo into a work of art. The web-app also includes an interesting face detection tool that can automatically detect faces and turn any large image into a customized portrait in a flash. For amateur photographers who aren’t ready to invest in costly software suites, Snipshot offers all the tools necessary to turn basic images into works of art.
