If you want to edit a photo but there is no photo editing software on the only computer you have access to and you are not allowed to install one, what can you do?

If you have web access on that computer, you can edit your photos online at Picnik. If your photos are already stored online at popular photo sharing sites or social networks, Picnik can grab the photos directly without the need to manually download them and then re-upload.

If you don’t have web access, it becomes difficult. If you anticipate such a situation, you may want to put the photo editing software on a USB flash drive. The software can run directly from the USB flash drive without installing on the computer you plug it into. To learn how to do that, visit PortableApps.com. One powerful and free photo editing software you can have is GIMP (Portable GIMP).
