Online Photo Editors: Easy digital art projects

I’ve never considered myself an artist, but I had no idea how easy it is to create digital art with online photo editors.

In the span of a few minutes, I created an avatar, a pop art photo that I can use on a greeting card, and a new desktop background.


I can imagine 100s of possible uses. Just a few quick ideas include:

  1. 1. photo facelifts – for that almost great photo you want to print or share with your friends
  2. 2. wall art posters for your teenagers – take their favorite pop star photo and apply a creative effect or filter
  3. 3. snow day activity with younger children – after you’ve heard “I’m bored!” and you need to pull a new idea out of your hat
  4. 4. apply a heart-shape filter – when you want to make up with someone or for next year’s Valentine’s Day cards.

Have you used online photo editors? If so, what features are important to you and what other types of creative digital art projects have you tried? Please leave me your feedback below. I’m interested to learn more!


You know, (insert grin here): if you’re starting to research a new computer purchase so you can upload and share your digital art (photos and videos) much faster than before, you might consider a visibly smarter PC experience.

If you’re really into digital art, you might check out the Intel – Gapingvoid Art Gallery for real digital art you can download on Inside Scoop.
