A newly introduced feature in SkyDrive cloud service is that you can edit your online images using the app in Windows 8.1. Although editing options present are limited they can fix the image to certain extent.


The editing options are pretty standard, the ones used for basic editing like cropping, resizing, etc. There is,



  1. Auto Fix
  2. Basic fixes
  3. Light
  4. Color
  5. Effects


The interface does not look cluttered as all the controls can be found in one place. To begin, choose 'Change PC Setings' option, Click 'SkyDrive' and open an image in SkyDrive app, right click on the image and you can access the Edit option from the bottom menu.

One highlight of SkyDrive image editing is that you can save the image online as a copy.
