This is something that I have been waiting for some time to show you. The code change for this landed in Chromium OS two weeks back but it took a while for us to actually see it.
Well, I have to agree, uploading image to picasa and then getting it edited on Picnic or any other online tool was not that great for basic imaging editing needs. Now that we have something local, things will be more cool!
And one bonus update: I saw the mention of a “format device” button in the code, so we will soon have option to format your USB drive or memory card from Chromebook!!!
Chrome OS will soon have a native image editor with basic functions like Resize, Crop, Blur, Sharpen etc. Here is a video of this feature in action.
How to Get This Working Now
– Download the folder that contains the image editor code with this command for instance: svn export http://src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/src/chrome/brows
– Then execute chrome with that command : ./chrome –allow-file-access-from-files
– And navigate to this file: file:///tmp/file_manager/js/image_editor/standalon
