Ever sit down at a coworker’s computer (or a loaner) only to find they don’t have your favorite image editing software installed? Rather than downloading and installing something like The Gimp or Paint.NET you can just point a web browser at Phoenix. Phoenix lets you upload photos to edit online or create new photos.
