Citrify is a new web-based photo editor

An Ottawa start-up has launched a new online photo editing application. 

Citrify provides quick photo editing directly inside any web browser that runs Adobe Flash. 

The photo editing tool allows for fast uploading from the user’s hard drive, where many tweaks can be run, mostly using sliders. 

Brightness and contrast can be adjusted, as well as hue, saturation and sharpness. 

Citrify also includes touch-up features like wrinkle and blemish removal and the all important ability to fix red eye. 

There are also a couple of effects filters like sepia, water colour and the now famous “Hope” effect from the Obama campaign posters.

Unique to Citrify are “stickers,” which allows the user to plant a kiss on a photo or add colourful wigs to the subject. 

Citrify was created by a two-person team in Ottawa referred to on the company website as the “Code Monkey” and the “Marketer.” 

The company also provides a Facebook app and a premium version of Citrify with extra features.
