Improve Your Images in an Instant

Have you ever taken a picture in a hurry to capture a moment, only to find out it's color isn't quite right or out of focus? Of course you have. And even in the modern age when every camera seems to have an LCD screen to preview your images we can still find imperfections once offloaded.  Well as long as they are in JPEG format, you no longer need to be a Photoshop expert to "fix" your image.  Instead, you can now use Improve Your Images. Simply upload your JPEG or provide the link to it's online location and you are provided with a view of the image you uploaded and a corrected version to download.  Below is an example of one of my favorite photos taken from the Parthenon in Athens, Greece during the 2004 Olympics.  It's hard to tell from the small images, but the before was a bit out of focus and dull (perhaps due to the smog that day).  In less than 30 seconds with Improve Your Images I ended up with a much cleaner brighter image.  Plus, as a bonus I think it may have actually made me look a little thinner!
