When it comes to editing images on the Chromebook. You don’t need to look too far because the built-in image editor is ideal. It offers all the functions you need for basic image editing. The built-in image editor for Chrome OS has recently changed, but you’ll find most of the functions are still available.

Chrome OS, which is the operating system the Chromebook uses receives regular updates. The majority of updates are for security purposes and slight tweaks to the operating system. Occasionally updates change how things work, which is the case with the Chrome OS image editor.

A recent update has given the image editor a complete overhaul. When you get used to software working in a certain way. It can take a while before you feel comfortable using the new version. This is why I’ve created a video to show you how to navigate and use the functions since the update. You’ll soon realise the changes are in fact beneficial.


The built-in image editor is pretty basic. However, I use it on a daily basis to edit images because it’s so easy to use. In fact, if you’ve only got to make some minor amendments to the images. Then you may find the built-in image editor is all you need.

The video I’ve created on this page shows you how to use the new image editor. It also explains some of the options you have available, which include the following:

  • Rotating images
  • Cropping images
  • Resizing images
  • Changing the exposure, contrast and saturation settings

The video also shows you how to navigate the new built-in Chrome OS image editor. Once you feel confident using the image editor. I’m sure you’ll agree for a basic image editor it offers excellent features, which can be used on a daily basis.
