Online Image Editor - With an Interesting Twist

Written by on March 30, 2010

There are many online image editors. Like Picnik (which was recently bought by Google), Pixlr, Aviary Phoenix, Photoshop online and many others. All them require that you go to their website to edit your images. Wouldn’t it be interesting if you could bring the online image editor into your own web apps.?

What if you could embed an image editor?

Last week I received an email from a new startup called Picmeleo. And they have done just that. An image editor that you can embed into your own site or web app.

That’s just brilliant.

Think of the opportunities here. This is an easy way to integrate image editing directly into publishing systems. Need to scale the image, no problem. Need to crop it? Yep - done! Need to add image editing into your social app. Yep that too.

As Picmeleo puts it:

We created Picmeleo in order to provide a better tool for online photo editing. Third-party developers can easily add Picmelo to their web service and launch the light-weight yet powerful photo editor whenever their users need to to upload or to edit an image. By adding Picmeleo to your web service, you can now engage your users with even richer content. Unlike other photo editors, Picmeleo opens within your site and your users never leave your service.

The service is completely free, but they plan to add a premium version later with more features.
