Man, this is exactly what I was looking for. A simple tool to make quick adjustments to photos without the need to re-download / edit / re-upload / fix the links etc. this plugin is a "Must" for blogs that have hundreds of photos and that every now and then need to re-purpose or quick edit images. Kudos to the devs.

What this editor does hits the right spot for my editor needs when I want to edit a featured or otherwise used image. The functions are somewhat crude but already quite sufficient to make boring stock pictures look so much more interesting and 10 times more useful for social sharing. I like how the features in the editor are so delightfully basic that I keep finding new ways to use them in a more versatile way. I hope this app will stay and be developed further because it does all the basic stuff so damn good! I wish all the plugins were quite as well written as this one. EDIT: I just found out I can just simply drag and drop pictures into this editor from my files into the browser?!?! Mind blown. This changes soo much! I no longer need to start up extensive image editors for cut and paste and caption stuff. I don't need to shoot flies with cannons anymore because this plugin is the king of all image editing fly swatters! Can I give this editor six stars? The pro version is on top of my shopping list as soon as I stop being dry-bread-eating broke.

I am just a beginner using this Plugin WP Paint. Much more practical to do "small thing in the images, like to add a arrow with different dimensions or colors. I am learning and discovering new things in order, if possible, to forget for other editors I use, to resize or crop or add a text. So far it is a way to be more productive! Warm regards, Pedro
