Image editing in the cloud seems counterintuitive. After all, image editors require some serious horsepower on the desktop, and internet connections would seem to limit the responsiveness. But Picnik proves that cloud-based image editing can be fast, fun, and reasonably powerful.

A tabbed-based interface makes it easy to load, edit, and save photographs. Rotating images, cropping, and resizing are all simple to perform. Even sharpening and red-eye removal are possible. Perhaps best of all, you don't have to upload your photos from a local computer. You can import them from other online services, including Facebook and Picasa.

Adobe's Photoshop Express is another capable cloud-based image editor. It offers some advanced tools--such as white balance adjustments, soft focus, and tinting controls--that Picnic does not, and its interface will be familiar to users of Adobe's image browsing applications such as Lightroom. And with the companion Photoshop Express Organizer, you can easily import images from Facebook, Flickr, and Picasa as well.
