Free Online Photo Editors
FotoFlexer - http://fotoflexer.com/
An easy to use free online image editor that allows for resizing, adjusting exposure, adding text and effects, and working with layers.
Pixlr - http://pixlr.com/
Similar to FotoFlexer, this free photo editing tool shares many of the same features, but it functions very much like Photoshop (so it is a bit more advanced). The site also has a separate 'Vintage Photo Effects' tool with a wide variety of filters.
Be Funky - http://www.befunky.com/
Look past the slightly silly name and page design for another free and easy to use photo editor. In addition to tools for resizing and editing, Be Funky has plenty of options to personalize your photos including holiday-themed frames and objects to insert like speech bubbles.
