    Picjuice is a site where anybody can take a photo and edit it resizing, cropping, rotating, flipping, and contrasting the lighting of an image. The site doesn’t cost and is simple to use when editing an image. I like that you can edit an image without having all the extra unecessary tools. Picjuice has competition and is not the only photo editing app out there. I would add frames and other popular tools to picjuice, so it would be more popular.

  2. As the world becomes more and more visually driven, resources such as Picjuice will gain relevance. It can be beneficial for students looking to quickly edit a saved photo to make it more appealing or fit more nicely within a paper or project. Picjuice only has six buttons, requires no registration, and is a very simplified way to get the most out of your images. In this tool you can crop, resize, flip, rotate, and adjust the colors and contrast of a photoraph. Because of the extremely basic design of this site, Picjuice gets the job done without the hassle. Teachers will no longer need to waste precious class time to instruct digital photo editing processes, and students will have great results. Any editing that typically needs to be done for educational purposes can be completed using Picjuice.

    On the downside, some students may become frustrated by the limited options. This should not be viewed as a medium for artistic expression, as the options are functional and not exploratory. However, this is a free site, and that factor alone makes this a relatively useful resource for photo editing.

    Picjuice seems a lot like other photo editing tools. It is easy to use but I found when trying to upload photos it would act like it was working but then it never uploaded. You don’t have to sign up or anything, so that is nice, but it wouldn’t let me upload anything, so I didn’t get to really try anything out. There was a section included about why to choose another image editor. In this section it said it doesn’t always upload photos and I ran into that problem. I tried to upload three different photos and none of them worked, so Picjuice is not reliable. The fact that it is free is appealing to a lot of people.
    This could be useful in educational settings. It is set up very simply, you hit browse, choose a picture and upload. There are then buttons to click under that like: crop, size, adjust, rotate, etc., so it would be easy to use for any age of student. But once again, it isn’t reliable, so students could get frustrated with it.

    Picjuice is an extremely basic and simply photo editing application. It has only 7 buttons, and in turn only 7 uses really. If your just starting in the photo editing field, this can be a useful tool to understand the basic concepts. It can also be used to quickly adjust an image to integrate it into your own projects in a snap. The fact that it is very basic can be a good thing because most people get extremely over whelmed if they open up a professional photoshop application with all of its bells and whistles. It is also free and requires no downloading. However, most computers already have this sort of tool already installed, although a little more complex, it can still get the job done. If you are in a pinch and don’t have any editing tools at hand, i think Picjuice is a perfect tool for quick and simple modifications.

    Although, because of its simplicity, it is very limited in its abilities. I will restate that it only has 7 buttons. If you want to drastically change a picture (like highlighting, burning, filtering, stamping, and blurring), then Picjuice will not suffice.

    Picjuice is a very, very simple photo-editing application. If you’re wanting to perform the basics of editing, this is the best application to use. It eliminates the confusing of high-profile, advanced programs such as Adobe Photoshop.

    However, the website is perhaps too simple. Although its focus is on the basics, it doesn’t differ much from photo applications that usually come with one’s computer. The color contrast tool is automatic and doesn’t allow someone to physically adjust their picture to their own specifications. If a picture is too large or won’t load properly, Picjuice will stop loading but no informational message will appear. I uploaded and re-uploaded a picture multiple times thinking that the fault was on my part when it was actually just not compatible with the website. Also, the site took awhile to load despite its simple structure.

    Adding more options such as visual effects (i.e. the option of color change, graphics, text, etc) would make this site more appealing without taking away from its emphasis on basic editing. Also providing more instructions and/or help messages would allow confusion to dissipate.

    I think that the simplisity of the website helps to make it not as confusing or difficult as Photo Shop or Microsoft Word. However you can do these five simple editing tools on Microsoft Word, so for me there is no need of this website. I would like to see more of a change in the picture that I am editing. For example a picture of me that has a random bird shadow on my shirt, I would like to be able to edit that to make my shirt the same. Good idea, but needs more work.

    My husband and i have been happy Michael could do his investigation by way of the ideas he had out of the web pages. It is now and again perplexing just to happen to be making a gift of guides which often a number of people might have been making money from. And we all fully grasp we have the blog owner to give thanks to for this. The type of illustrations you made, the straightforward blog menu, the relationships you can help to instill it is many awesome, and it is letting our son and the family understand the subject matter is satisfying, which is seriously important. Thanks for everything!
