Pixlr is a great set of image creation and editing tools. Pixlr offers web-based image editing tools; Pixlr Express+ can be used on Android phones and on iPhones. Pixlr also has Firefox and Chrome browser extensions for creating screen captures.
Pixlr Editor is Pixlr’s most full-featured image creation and editing tool. Drawings can be created from scratch using the pencil and colouring tools. Pixlr Editor also has options for uploading images or importing images from other places on the web. The selection of creation and editing tools includes making multiple layer images, many filter settings, and tools for cropping and resizing images. Images can be saved to your computer, sent to Flickr, Picassa, Facebook, or saved to the Pixlr account (Richard Byrne).
