Today almost everybody you know has a camera phone. We are all taking pictures using our phone and then transferring those pictures to our computers to share them or use them on the internet. But before we can do this latter part, sometimes there are a few changes that need to be made to the images. For example, you might have to scale down an image to adhere to a particular online forum’s rules. At other times, you might want your picture’s lighting to be fixed by retouching or by image filters. Normally, one would try out different web app for editing and retouching functions. But thanks to a web service called PhotoCat, you get both these features within the same website.
