According to me, this Windows 8 Image Editor works well if you are looking for a simple editor. Only some basic effects are available in PicLabs. However, if you are looking for an editor to add effects like frames and background or for morphing or adding text or annotate, then this might not turn out to be helpful. However, just for simple effects you can use it. Try it on your own side to know better and don’t forget sharing your Experience with us.
