Edit an Image
The Image Editor provides users with basic image editing functions like cropping, resizing, and changing the orientation. In addition to the basic functions, however, it also provides effects (filters), frames, text, and more. The editor functions very similarly to popular app-based image editors, making the learning curve almost non-existant.
