  1. 1) picjuice.com is an online editing application where users can edit their photos in a flash. When you visit picjuice.com you can upload your image then use the editing tools to adjust your photo. Picjuice.com has all of the standard editing tools such as: crop, resize, flip, rotate, and adjust. You don’t need to spend lots of money on an editing program just to crop a photo of yours. Picjuice.com has all of the tools highlighted in orange and clearly labeled so you can easily find the tool you need. Once you have edited your image to your liking you can download it and save it by pressing the save icon. Picjuice.com gives users a standard editing application with no fuss and no hassle.  http://www.killerstartups.com/Web-App-Tools/picjuice-com-online-photo-editor#ixzz0j2oivjw9

    2) here are the operation buttons that can be used to edit photos on picjuice:  !http://img.labnol.org/di/picjuics-operations.gif|border=1! If you’re looking for a dead simple online image editor to perform only the most basic image editing tasks, Google Appengine basedPicjuice is the answer. Picjuice allows you to Crop, Resize, Flip, Rotate and Adjust, operations which theGoogle Appengine Image API supports. http://www.labnol.org/internet/tools/picjuice-online-image-editor/4785/

    3) PicJuice is a very simple online image editing tool. Equipped only with seven functions which will allow you to resize, flip, rotate and adjust contrast and color levels of an image. To use the service, all you need to do is upload an image or photo and you can select from the mentioned tools and you can begin with the simple editing. Even if you could do this in easily in Photoshop and other image editors, the simplicity of the service is hard to ignore. This will be most useful in cropping image files but not as useful to me because I mostly use screenshots and then I crop. This is quite an interesting tool. Given the time, I think it can turn into a powerful online editing tool. It’s only in beta version so we can expect more from PicJuice. As for now, it can only be used for simple photo editing tasks. It’s a neat tool to play around with. http://www.orangeinks.com/tips-n-tricks/picjuice-simple-online-photo-editing-tool/

    4) Web based image editors have been popping up forsome time now. Even the de facto image editor Photoshop couldn't resist setting up shop. But sometimes you just want to simply resize or crop a photo and not be inadated with a multitude of tools and swatches. Enter picjuice, an online image editor with simplicity in mind. As soon as you pull up the site it's clear that "ease of use" was the main objective here. The only tools available are Crop, Resize, Flip, Rotate and Adjust. The controls for each tools are simple as well, depending on the tool selected you either get an A or B option, a slider or in the case of the Crop tool, a cross hair to select the area you want to use. These simple controls will aid in a shorter learning curve over the more feature rich sites. In our testing we actually found the resizing tool here better than the one available from Photoshop Express. In Express, the resized image looked jagged but not in picjuice . However, the site seemed to be only compatible with JPG or PNG files as when we tried a GIF file picjuice would hang when we tried to edit the image. Currently in beta, picjuice joins the already crowded online imaging arena. Hopefully, its limited get down to business attitude will help to differentiate itself from the competition. http://www.downloadsquad.com/2008/06/30/picjuice-another-online-imaging-software/

    Picjuice can be used to easily crop, resize, flip, rotate and adjust the photos online. With this editor you can crop and edit as many photos as you would like with no registration or sign-up. The pictures you edit can then be saved onto your personal computer. http://www.makeuseof.com/dir/picjuice-online-image-editor/

    1. In a recent poll, picjuice was valued $1,116. Pages are ranked according to the number and quality of links leading to that page. The increase in rank may increase the value.

    The service is an online picture editing app powered by Google App Engine. Through picjuice, users can edit their pictures in a real time. You don’t even need to go through any kind of hectic software installations. Picjuice offers all standard editing tools such as crop, resize, flip, rotate, or adjust in one place. Thus, if you urgently want an image to be resized or cropped then an Internet connection would be enough to serve your need.

    The editing buttons are highlighted at the left corner of a page with a white http://startupmeme.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/toolbar.jpgbackground. This enables a quick understanding of icons and features. You can resize your picture by using a magnifying slide bar. Flip it horizontally or vertically by hitting a button and save it in any of the two available file formats (JPEG and PNG). The UI is self explanatory and serves the bare editing functionalities. A user without any graphical background will definitely find it useful.

    The site in its beta phase has a chance to grow up. But it really needs certain improvements. It can add more editing options. Support for various other file formats can be added. The Adjust button do not give any idea as how much user is eager to alter  the image’s colour levels and contrasts. Being powered by Google, it can also add picture galleries to broaden its space to support more users.

    Unlike many other photo editing products, Picjuice only has five options for editing pictures: crop, resize, flip, rotate, and adjust.  Adobe Photoshop, rated number 1 in photo editing by Photo Editing Software Review 2010, has a large number of options for editing pictures.  This makes Picjuice friendly to userse who are not comfortable using overwhelming softwares such as Adobe Photoshop.

    In comparing Picjuice with other picture editing competitors, picjuice has the upper hand. When you visit the site, the instructions and action buttons are easy to understand and implement. The site as a whole is very simple and easy to use. If you need to quickly edit a picture, picjuice beats other options such as photoshop or fotoflexer which often times forces registration and involves more advanced controls. The site is also free of advertisements and other pictures. http://www.killerstartups.com/Web-App-Tools/picjuice-com-online-photo-editor
