In a world where social networks are a big part of everyday life, photo uploading and sharing has become hugely popular and with that, the need for the average person to be able to easily edit their photos as they please. PhotoCat is an online and mobile application for editing and retouching images. Created by a team of photography and tech enthusiasts, the application is designed to make photo editing a fun and simple experience for anyone. PhotoCat's API makes this functionality available to be integrated with other applications.
Who ever said that institutions were loathe to change? Well call him up and let him know, the Library of Congress, with their Prints and Photographs API has finally taken the REST API plunge. If this government institution can do it, maybe you can convince the head of your IT department that APIs are a good idea too.
