1. FlauntR: A very interesting tool to add cool effects to your work.

In the last issues, I have reviewed a couple of online software that were very similar (but less powerful) to paint shop pro or photoshop. In this issue, I will review an online software that is a little bit different. This one is called FlauntR. This software can really be worth a look if you are looking to add special effects to your images.

The first thing you need to do before using FlauntRis to create an account. It's free and once you've done it, you can start using the software immediately. You don't need to check your mail to confirm your subscription.

Next, you need to upload a picture in order to start playing around with it. You can import pictures from your computer, from FlauntR archives or from many other services like Flickr or Facebook. The first part of this software, called StylR, allows you to add templates around your images. I didn't count them all, but there are a lot to choose from (easily several hundred different ones).

Then, you can go to the EditR section. You can re-size, crop and rotate your images. The cropping featured is difficult to adjust, even if you zoom into the image. You can also add some effects to your work (like sharpen, pixelate or blur).

The textR section gives you the opportunity to add some text on your image. Many special fonts are available. You also have the option of adding pre-define shapes to your artwork (like arrows, eyes or any kind of icons). Once again, I did not count them, but I can easily say that a couple of hundreds of icons are available.

The next section, called picasR, allows you to add some painting effects to your image. This section can be interesting if you look forward to add some nice light and colorization effects to your images. You can choose from many different painting style. It's entertaining but I found it difficult to obtain the desired effect.

FlauntR also comes with various tool to help you share your images but I did not test them all. This is overall a good free online software but it does not include tools like a pencil, an eraser or any other features to help you modify an image. Use it only to add special effects or filter to your work.
