Photoshop has its benefits, and there are times when it’s necessary to use a sophisticated tool to get the results you really want with an image. Then there are all the other times. When you want to make basic adjustments to digital images, Iaza is the web-app to use. Iaza users can convert and edit photos online without having to download complicated software or learn about confusing new programs.
To say that uploading and converting an image with Iaza couldn’t be easier is an understatement. To see for yourself, just head to the Iaza site, click the black arrow, and grab a photo from your hard drive. After clicking “load,” you’ll see the image appear on your screen. What you do next is up to you. Convert the image to another format, crop it, rotate it, resize it, bend it, warp it, or animate it. You can add layers and artistic flourishes, or adjust the brightness and contrast until the image looks its best. If you have absolutely no idea what to do with the image, then just click the “Instant Fix” button and let Iaza do the work. Iaza saves each version of the image, so you don’t have to worry about saving over the original or writing over some of the adjustments you’ve already made. To save the updated version of your image on your desktop, just click the image once and then save the larger version that shows up on the next page. Viola, you’re done.
Although Iaza functions best as a basic image-editing tool, the application actually has a number of advanced features for people to try, as well. Users who know a thing or two about editing digital photos can add filters and watermarks with Iaza, and they can even create a collage of combined photos. When it comes to free image editing tools, it’s hard to beat Iaza.
