The need for a simple online picture editor exists.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
PicResize.com proudly announces a 30 million photos processed milestone that comes up just around the time of the company’s 7-year anniversary release of a new site platform guaranteed to provide users with more features and social media sharing tools to choose from.
Nich Wattanasin, founder of PicResize.com, attributes such success from word of mouth advertisement as the need for a free and easy to use tool has proven to be enough to propel PicResize to the top of Google Search rankings, without the aid of traditional advertising.
“The need for a simple online picture editor exists,” explains Wattanasin. “PicResize has been around since 2005, and I still receive many e-mails and calls from editors, teachers, realtors, and even students, thanking me for the free service.”
With 30,000 pictures resized, cropped and processed daily, the popularity is staggering and, if the last few months are any indicator, full of growth potential as competition dwindles.
“I’ve seen an uptick in traffic since our biggest competitor and a former online editing tool, Google’s Picnik.com, unfortunately closed a few months ago,” says Wattanasin.
Today, to coincide with the 30 million photos processed milestone, Wattanasin has released the next version of PicResize, a new platform which allows users a range of new features and social media tools for editing and sharing their photos online. New “instagram” –like special effects that can be added to filter a user’s photo is now available, along with the ability to post directly to Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Additional features include more sophisticated uploading through HTML 5. Now users with advanced browsers, such as Safari or Chrome, can simply drag and drop images directly from their computer to the PicResize online tool. Once the file is uploaded, users will have access to the same cropping and resizing features along with new features that allow for resizing down to specific pixels and under a certain file size in kilobytes.
As a next step, Wattanasin is looking to further develop the ease and use of PicResize.com on mobile platforms for iPhones and iPad apps with an ultimate goal of expanding the reach and accessibility of the tool to more users through affiliations with widely known camera manufacturers.
“The long term goal is to try to partner with a major camera manufacturer, like Canon or Nikon, since the main users of Picresize are photo enthusiasts who all own cameras,” says Wattanassin.
