Editing online images generally requires you to download them to your PC first, and then edit them using an image editor. But what if you could edit images directly on the webpage you saw them? Wouldn’t that save some time and effort? GooEdit, an extension for Google Chrome, offers just that. It’s a powerful, yet simple image editor that lets users edit images online.

After clicking on the icon once, right-click the image you wish to edit. The image will be highlighted in red, and the Image Editor tray will popup, below the Address bar. Hover the mouse over an option on the Image Editor tray to read its description. Click an option to see its effect on the selected image.
It offers plentiful image editing options, such as invert, edge detection, add/remove noise, pointillize, blur, grayscale, rotate left/right and many more. Click on the left floppy icon to save the edited image to your PC.
