Getting Started with iPiccy — How to Upload a Photo to Edit

1aopen

1.  Go to ipiccy.com

2  Click on the yellow tab, which says Start Editing!

3.  On the next screen [above] click on Upload Photo

4.   Begin Editing — I usually begin by trying Auto Fix.  If the photo has any minor problems with exposure, sharpness, etc.,  Auto Fix will normally correct those quickly.

One thing that I like about iPiccy is that actions can be cancelled and/or undone.  Believe it or not–many of the free photo editors do not allow you to Undo.  That is a major pain. 

More Information About Getting Started with iPiccy

iPiccy is a very powerful photo editor with features that approximate those of  Photoshop.  In fact, in some areas–especially for the hobbyist and casual users–it exceeds Photoshop.  For instance, iPiccy has tons of Stickers  [what Photoshop calls Custom Shapes]–making iPiccy the preferred editor for cute Instagram and scrapbook editing.

I especially like that iPiccy can be used to edit photos on the computer.  It is impossible for me to see well enough on my iphone to do any serious editing from there; by transferring my cell phone and other camera images to my computer, I can use iPiccy on a much larger screen–then share the photo from my computer or return it to my iphone and share it from there i.e. from Instagram.

1.  So let’s get started–go to http://ipiccy.com

You will see the options shown in the above screen save.

2.  Click on the yellow tab, which says Start Editing

It says that you do not have to register the program; but many of iPiccy’s more sophisticated features are only available after you register.  Most of the “free” photo editors require a fee to use the better features; but iPiccy only asks you to register.

So, what’s the catch?

Correct:  nothing is free.  There are advertisements on iPiccy.  I just ignore them.  I advise caution where those ads are concerned.  Many of them do require you to download this or that.  When you do that, you often download spyware, tool bars that you don’t want, alien web browsers, etc.  iPiccy’s ads are harmless–just don’t click on them.  Ignore them.
