PicMonkey by @adambellow

PicMonkey is a wonderful photo editing tool that is fun, full-featured, and easy to use. Picking up where tools that have disappeared left off (Picnik) this one allows users to just get to work without signing up or entering an Email. There are lots of filters, effects, and tools to enhance a photo from a number of galleries online or using an uploaded image. PicMonkey is truly a breath of fresh air with a clean interface that begs for a user to unleash their imagination. PicMonkey can be used for the obvious art purposes, but can also be woven into many other areas of the curriculum – editing a map, working with manipulatives for math, and much more.
