5 Free Online Photo Editors

Artists and writers have been able to make use of the ever-growing trend of creating visually appealing posts for their work. Obviously, Photoshop has been the graphics designer giant since the earliest release in the 1990s. Unfortunately, Photoshop also came with steep price tag in the $400 range. Since then, Adobe has gone to a Cloud-based version of most of their top titles. Photoshop runs about $240 annually ($360 if you choose the entire Adobe suite).

For those who are on a budget, GIMP is a free, open-source alternative to Photoshop. It is very much in-line with many of the features Adobe implements but there is a slight learning curve and a few tasks that aren’t as smooth as its Photoshop counterpart. But with that said, GIMP works wonders and did I mention it’s FREE?

This post is not about software titles. With technology stepping up, web-based applications are fast becoming a go-to option. Listed below, in no particular order, are 5 of the top graphics and photo editors available online. Each of them has the features needed to create stunning graphics or carry out the simplest of tasks. It really comes down to which one holds the most ease of use and personal preference.

We Can Never Forget the History of Pearl Harbor

On the morning of December 7, 1941, as many of the men and women stationed there slept in their beds the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. When the attack, which lasted just over 2 hours was finally over, 2,402 had lost their lives and another 1,282 were wounded. As news spread to the states it came as a complete shock to an entire nation. In FDR’s speech declaring war against Japan on December 8, 1941, he spoke the words that still echo today ; ‘December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy’ – and as a nation mourned it also prepared to go into battle against the Japanese Empire.
