For those who like to dabble with a bit of photo editing but aren't really inclined to pursue more advanced and sophisticated tools like Photoshop, an online photo ending tool like Ribbet may be just what they're looking for. This app may not give you the most groundbreaking features when it comes to cutting edge image editing, but it certainly has appealing functions that are easy to use and easy to access online, allowing users to get really creative with their photos. What's also cool is that developers can integrate this photo editor into their websites, using the Ribbet API.
A trend is starting to emerge: Advanced technologies are being made available first as cloud services that organizations can invoke easily via an API, rather than having to figure out how to deploy and master themselves. The latest example of that trend is a cloud service from AlchemyAPI that takes advantage of machine learning and computer vision technologies to allow publishers and providers of ad networks to more easily monetize content.
