Pixlr is a free online photo editor for Netbooks. Any netbook cannot handle the Photoshop suite quite effectively due to the limitation of storage space. Pixlr is specially designed for smart phone, tablets and netbooks. I have never seen an online tool that comes close to Photoshop, but Pixlr exceeds all expectations. Pixlr is one of the best online photo editor. After all, it an Autodesk product.
Usually, an online photo editor is expected to be lightweight. A less feature-packed version of the original is uploaded over the server. However, in the case of Pixlr, the case is a bit different.
Not only do you get all of the vintage filters, but another 600-plus effects that can be applied in the new app.
How the online photo editor works
On the first menu you’ll be greeted with options to make Adjustments, add Effects, add Overlays, or add a Border. Set them as per your choice. Now that the preferences are set to your liking, press the Back button and decide whether to take a new photo or edit one from your Gallery. One missing feature here is the ability to see live filters on your images — though this might be due to the sheer volume of options available making it difficult to process them all live.
Here is how you use Pixlr to edit or create images:
The menu has an entire list of options like
- remove Red Eye,
- Touch Up,
- Auto Fix
Each of these devices, except of Auto Fix, will allow you to control how the adjustment is made. So you control the final image
Allows the user to apply filters that change the appearance of the entire image. There are many other color tools and effects that will chop the image into multiple parts and apply different effects to each one. After applying one of these effects, tap on the Fade box at the bottom to adjust the intensity of the filter. You can also apply the vintage filters like Sepia, Photochrom and other aging filters on the image.
This is where most of the features are hidden, since the collection of Overlays is simply big! You can move the overlays around on the photo. This helps when the overlay blocks out a specific area you want to focus on, not conceal.
If you come across any effect that you like, just apply it to the image and click on the heart icon to add it to your favorites. Now you have created a new category in that area of the app called Favorites, allowing quick and easy access to it later on.
Once you’ve finished editing the image to your preference, it can be saved by pressing the Save button on the top right-hand corner of the app. The Share and Gallery buttons will then load, allowing you to share the image through one of your installed apps, or just Save to your personal Gallery on the device.
